Continue Cutting…For Now
Grass continues to grown until the first hard frost and so regular cuts are still necessary to keep it at an ideal height. If it gets too long it will mat and become vulnerable to fungi like snow mold. Cutting grass too short, however, is just as bad because it curtails the root system and impedes the lawn’s ability to withstand winter cold.
Leaves may look pretty but they’re no good for grass; blocking the light and trapping moisture, becoming potentially fatal for the grass beneath. So when the leaves are falling, it is important you or your professional lawn care service blows or rakes them away as often as possible.
If your lawn isn’t getting at least an inch of water a week (a rain gauge is a useful way to keep track) then keep the irrigation system running until the end of October. Then, schedule your fall blowout for your irrigation system right away. This is one of the many lawn care services we provide at Advanced Irrigation.
Just as grass roots need water to last the winter, they also benefit from fertilizer to help protect them winter weather.
Another one of our many lawn care services we provide, spreading seed is great at protecting your turf from weeds come spring. Not only does seeding help fill in thin spots or bare patches, it allows us to introduce the latest in resilient, drought-tolerant grasses. Fall is the best time to seed because the ground is still warm, moisture is more plentiful and the sun is not as hot during the day.
