The Best Fall Treatments To Protect Grass Over the Winter


Wondering how much care your lawn needs this fall to protect the grass over the winter? 

There are convenient options to help you protect your grass this fall. 

Fertilizer is where it starts to keep your lawn healthy, with regular applications at the right times to support your grass growing at its best, and weed control as needed to keep your lawn looking thick and healthy. 

You’ll want to start in spring, do another application mid-summer with some spot weed control, and then fertilize again in the fall.

If you have thin patches of grass, you might need help removing grubs under the lawn, or to have your lawn aerated to prevent soil compaction or a thick mat of roots from preventing a healthy lawn from growing back. Especially if you see thin grass in areas where your lawn receives a lot of heavy traffic, you might need aeration to ensure your grass grows back thick next year. 

Keep cutting your lawn until the first hard frost, because it will keep growing! Make sure you’re not letting it get too long, which can make grass vulnerable to fungi, but don’t cut it too short either, or you’ll damage the grass’s ability to put down strong roots. Two and a half to three inches is just right. 

Make sure that your lawn doesn’t have leaves or debris sitting on it in the fall, as this can choke out grass that may not return in the spring. Rake or remove leaves and debris promptly during the fall. 

Still looking thin? You might want to overseed the lawn in fall and keep the soil damp until new grass germinates so it will come back thicker in spring. Don’t do this too late in fall or too early in spring, or the seeds or new growth could be damaged by frost.

Finally, you’ll want a turf winterization round of fertilizer applied to your lawn late in the fall, in October or November. Giving your lawn the nutrition it needs in the fall will help it grow back healthy and strong in the spring.

How To Care For Your Lawn in Fall To Protect Your Grass


Your lawn has served you well all summer. How do you make sure your fall lawn care protects your grass for a beautiful lawn in the spring? Here’s how you know your lawn needs some fall lawn care to make it come back strong next year:

  • Your lawn is looking dry after a long, hot summer
  • Your lawn has thin patches or bare soil showing
  • Your grass is being pushed out by weeds

Even if you’ve taken great care of your lawn for many years, sometimes your grass needs a boost of nutrition or some extra care in the fall to make sure it weathers the winter for another great spring.

Fall Lawn Maintenance Schedule To Protect Your Grass Over Winter

If you have thin patches in your lawn by fall, you might need help removing grubs under the lawn, or to have your lawn aerated to prevent soil compaction or a thick mat of roots from preventing a healthy lawn from growing back. Especially if you see thin grass in areas where your lawn receives a lot of heavy traffic, you might need aeration to ensure your grass grows back thick next year. This is important to do in the fall to allow grass to grow rather than weeds, which benefit more from aeration if you leave it off until spring.

Keep cutting your lawn until the first hard frost, because it will keep growing! Two and a half to three inches is just the right length. If your lawn is getting less than one inch of rain per week, keep watering through the fall until the frost, then disconnect any hoses and flush the irrigation system to prevent frozen pipes and spigots.

Essential Tips for Fall Lawn Maintenance from a Professional Lawncare Company

Do you want to keep your lawn lush and green before winter sets in?


Are you wondering how to take care of your lawn during the autumn months?

Keeping up with lawn maintenance during the fall is essential for preserving your grass through the winter. 

Be sure to keep mowing to a height of 3 inches until the grass stops growing. 

Consider aerating and dethatching your lawn—fall is a perfect time to do so!

Make sure to fertilize your lawn! Grass goes into a high-absorption mode in the fall to prepare for the winter months. This makes September and October a great time to give your grass extra nutrients to help it thrive through the winter.

Fall is also a good time to take care of weeds. Weeds also go into a high-absorption mode to prepare for the winter, meaning that any weed control you use will be more effective. Many weeds undergo a second bloom and drop another round of seeds in the fall. To protect your lawn, dig them out or use herbicide before they bloom.

What Every Homeowner Should Know When Taking Care of their Lawn in the Fall


Are you looking for a way to keep your lawn healthy through the winter?

Are you wondering what you should do to improve your lawn health in the fall?

Keeping up with lawn care throughout autumn can help you maintain green and healthy grass for the rest of the year. Fall lawn maintenance is essential for preserving your lawn over the winter!

Learn from one of the top lawn care companies in Livingston County—keep your lawn healthy through the fall months with these tips!

  1. Take care of the falling leaves that pile up on your lawn! Mulch dry leaves into tiny pieces by running over them with a lawnmower – or rake them up the old-fashioned way.
  2. Patches of lawn often die in the summertime, which is why you should reseed any dead patches in the fall to let grass grow back before the cold months. 
  3. Don’t stop mowing! Keep cutting your grass to a height of 3 inches until the first freeze of winter, when it stops growing.

Overwhelmed by Fertilizer Options? We Can Help!


Lawn fertilizer isn’t rocket science but it’s not as simple as picking up the first bag you see at the big box store, either.

If your lawn is sparse, or patchy or full of weeds, start with a soil test to see what nutrients might be missing. When you have the right product, only use as much as you need. Too much fertilizer can give your lawn a chemical burn and runoff from wasted fertilizer adds to algae growth in Michigan lakes and streams.

Catch Frustrating Lawn Problems Early with These Tips


Got grass issues?

Your lawn needs just a little bit of extra care to stay green and healthy in spring, summer, and fall in Michigan.

Now and then, check that it has enough water. Poke a screwdriver or tent stake in the dirt. If it goes in easy, you’re fine. If the soil is hard and dry, give it some water. Compacted soil doesn’t absorb water well. If you notice that you’re wearing a path in your lawn, loosen up the soil and give your grass a chance to grow deeper roots. It’s not common in most residential areas, but if you’re in a wet area, you might have fungi that can damage the plant life.
