Fall Lawn Maintenance!
By: Old Point National Bank / 03 Nov 2017
Follow these simple fall lawn maintenance tips so you'll have a healthy lawn in the Spring!
- Mow Regularly – Mow your lawn as needed and adjust your mower to the lowest setting as the season changes. This will allow more sunlight to reach the crown of the grass.
- Rake the Leaves – Throughout the season, rake your lawn regularly to allow sunlight to reach the lawn. Too many leaves can suffocate the lawn, causing patches or fungal diseases.
- Fill in Patches – If there are patchy areas in your lawn, rake gently in those areas to rough up the soil and fill with a lawn-repair mixture. Lightly compact the area and water daily for two weeks.
- Prevent Weeds – Weeds steal nutrients and moisture from your lawn. Prevent them by applying an herbicide in early- to mid-fall.
