Fall is a critical time for your lawn. This is the time of year when we need to prepare your lawn for the long, cold winter, so that it comes back in the spring looking great. Some of the fall lawn care jobs are well known, but sometimes we get the “deer in the headlights” look when we start talking about soil amendment delivery. Don’t worry, we’ll break it all down for you in some easy to follow tips…
– Orgrow is a soil amendment with very high nutrient content and also contains a bit of lime, which will help balance the ph levels and also adds some important minerals to the lawn.
– Orgrow can also be mixed with Topsoil for a blend that works great too.
– Topsoil/Leaf Compost Mix provides the nutrient rich compost with naturally occurring Virginia loamy.
Any of these choices are great for your lawn. Spread a layer just 1/4″ or so to your lawn. This can be done in conjunction with overseeding.
Trim your lawn short and spread your seed over the entire area. You’ll want to do this soon, to give the seeds time to germinate and grow before the first hard frost.
Don’t let the leaves get too thick. If you have a heavily wooded yard, mulching leaves is not the best option. While leaf compost does get broken down by worms and helps produce organics, too much will block needed fall sunlight and end up smothering the grass.
With these few steps, your lawn will be happy and healthy! Start by ordering your soil amendment or top soil and get your fall lawn care underway.
