Tips for Fertilizing Your Lawn in the Fall

Lawns improve air quality and generate oxygen. That’s another reason why we need to ensure lawns stay healthy. So they can continue creating these very beneficial things for us. Not mention if properly maintained they can make your house look great and increase your curb appeal!

One of the best ways to keep grass looking fresh on the surface and healthy down to their roots is to properly maintain it and fertilize. And fall is the most important fertilization time of the year.

Why is the fall the best time of the year to fertilize?

Summer heat is stressful on your lawn. Fall’s cooler temperatures provide the perfect setting for lawn to regain strength.

Fall is the most important time to fertilize your lawn because:

• Fall’s morning dew delivers moisture to help the grass absorb the fertilizer.

• The grass has a chance to build strength before a cold new england winter.

WHEN IN FALL SHOULD YOU APPLY FERTILIZER TO YOUR LAWN?

Apply fall lawn fertilizer 2 weeks before the ground freezes. Look online for your area. Typically, mid-October is a good time to apply lawn fertilizer.

IS THERE A BEST TIME OF DAY TO FERTILIZE YOUR LAWN?

The best time of day to fertilize is in the morning or early evening. These times have cooler temperatures.

WHEN TO FERTILIZE LAWN AFTER MOWING?

Start fresh by mowing your lawn right before you fertilize it. Leaving some clippings behind can help the grass as well.

SHOULD LAWN FERTILIZER BE APPLIED BEFORE RAIN?

NO!!!!!!! Never fertilize lawns before a heavy rain to avoid runoff, so be sure to check the forecast before you start. And if it recently rained, let the grass blades dry before fertilizing.
