Now is the time to prepare your yard so that you are guaranteed a great growing season next year. Here are some good tips for you to keep in mind:

  • Cooling temperatures slow above ground growth and moist soil encourages strong root development. Remove spent stems, dead branches and heavy leaf cover to protect your plants.
  • If you have rainfall pooling on your grass, it is time to aerate so that nutrients can reach the roots of your grass.
  • Cut back on fertilizer so that your perennials don’t waste energy on leaf production.
  • Disease has a harder time developing on shorter grass. Make sure your last cut of the season is extra short.
