Let’s face it, lawn care can be a full-time job, especially with the seasons changing. If you want to ensure you have ultimate curb appeal all-year long then, with winter on its way, it’s time to winterize your lawn. Our fall lawn care to-do lists can quickly get out of hand, so let us help you ease your mind!
As we move into the growing season, it’s essential that you are not over-watering your lawn. A little goes a long way. Re-calibrate your sprinkler system from the summer growing season. In general, we typically recommend one inch of water per week, but every lawn is different, which is why we are happy to offer you a customized consultation for determining what care is best for your lawn. You can consult with North Georgia Lawn to determine a tailored schedule for your sprinkler.
During the summer months, it’s common for your family to enjoy your lawn with games of tag, races, and family gatherings. However, during the fall and winter, your grass becomes more dormant which makes it a bit weaker. This dormancy period is common during the fall and winter; however, because of morning frost, your lawn may be more open to damage. If the kids are running races and trampling across the grass to run to the bus stop then you might start to see some damage on your lawn. Safeguard your lawn by trying to minimize foot traffic each day.
The changing leaves in the fall are a beautiful sight, if only they would stay up in their trees! Unfortunately, in no time we will have lawns covered in leaves and fallen branches. The task of leaf and branch removal can be overwhelming but it is necessary for a healthy lawn. Ultimately, if you don’t rake leaves often or remove fallen branches, your lawn will be susceptible to bacteria and disease. In addition, heavy branches and leaves can also suffocate your grass, ultimately damaging the roots. Give your grass the room it needs to breathe by continuously removing leaves and branches. If you’re short on time, give North Georgia Lawn a call to help out.
Winterizing your lawn will also include making necessary adjustments during the fall. September and October are ideal months to consider aeration. North Georgia Lawn can offer you aeration services that defend your grass roots from weeds and bacteria. Aeration includes alleviating soil compaction that commonly worsens during the winter months, ultimately giving your lawn a chance to absorb nutrients, air, and water.
Premium lawn care requires dedication, which is why many homeowners trust in the expertise of North Georgia Lawn. See how we can help you winterize your lawn and prepare your lush green grass and landscaping for the fall and winter seasons. Contact us today!
