Fall And Winter Lawn Mowing And Maintenance

Fall And Winter Lawn Mowing And Maintenance

A successful, green lawn usually starts in the fall and winter months, getting ahead of weeds and getting the right mix of nutrients in the soul. Starting in November, reduce your mower height about a half inch to an inch shorter than you normally do. Be sure to bag any clippings to reduce the amount of weed seeds that get left behind. Getting all the thatch picked up will help it stay healthier during the cold winter months. When spring returns, you will be rewarded with less weeds and a healthier lawn right from the start.

In the fall use a lower nitrogen slow release fertilizer to give nutrients during the winter months. A winter fertilizer will put potassium back into the soil, making it more resistant and healthy during the dormant winter months. It is important to get it fertilized before it stops growing in mid to late November, so make this a fall routine.
