If you want a truly healthy and full lawn in the spring, it’s very important to do fall feedings. These fall feedings help build strong and deep grass roots for a better lawn next spring. They provide nutrients to your lawn that help repair the damage from summer heat, drought, and constant activity. Use products like Ace Winterizer and Scotts® Turf Builder® WinterGuard® Fall Lawn Fertilizer for your fall lawn care.
If weeds have become a problem, now is a great time to take care of these weeds too. There are products that both feed your lawn and kill dandelions and other major lawn weeds at the same time. Check out Ace Winterizer Weed & Feed or Scotts® Turf Builder® WinterGuard® Fall Weed & Feed.
And don’t forget if you purchased your 4-Step Lawn Care program in the spring, now is time for Step 4. This will strengthen and protect for a better spring lawn. Be sure to apply Step 4. Ideally you should apply two fall feeding- one now and another 6 weeks later. The second feeding gives your lawn additional nutrients it needs to store up for growth in spring.
Reseeding is another great lawn maintenance project for the fall. Your lawn most likely experienced heat and drought this summer so there are parts that are damaged. Reseed these specific areas or your whole lawn with either Ace Fall Lawn Seed Mix or Scotts® Turf Builder® Fall Lawn Seed. Just remember to give it a light watering once a day until the new grass reaches mowing height.
