Lawn Care & Landscaping in Late Summer and Early Fall

Managing the lawn in late summer and early fall is essential. Good practices can help maintain a vigorous lawn or revive a sloping lawn. These practices include cutting, fertilization, scarification, aeration, weed control and planting.

Mowing

It produces a clean and well looked after appearance. Cutting inappropriate grass causes many problems.  Grass such as Kentucky bluegrass, perform best in cool spring and fall weather. Bluegrass lawns are usually at a height of 3 cm cut during the hot and stressful summer. According to the Lawn Care Apex NC mowing should do with lower lawn mower when temperatures are cool in late summer. Cut bluegrass in 2 to 2 1/2 inches during fall. Mow often enough for no more than a third of the total surface area of ​​the leaf. Keep sticking to the stops and the grass that grows sleep in late fall one (early and mid-November).

Cut the new bluegrass lawns seeded at a height of 2 to 2 1/2 inches as soon as you reach 3 to 3 1/2 inches in height. Mowing the lawn does not miss anything, promotes spreading and promotes thicker grass

Fertilization

The end of summer and fall is an excellent time to fertilize the lawn. Apply 1 to 2 pounds of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet.

Removal of straw

Straw is the layer of dead and living plant material that forms between the bottom surface and the green foliage. When coating is present in amounts greater than 1/2 inch, scarification may be advantageous. Cutters and vertical motorcyclists, available at many rental companies and garden centers, fine grass and remove the cane to the underside. The remains The grass was then cut and discarded. Removal of the straw can be done in late August or September. Cameron Pest Control suggest to allow at least four weeks of good growth time after unpacking. This gives time to regain the lawn before it is inactive in late fall. Apply fertilizer after unpacking the manure to promote lawn recovery.

Aeration

Lawns that are subject to heavy foot traffic, may be thin by compaction. Leave the soil compressed in late August or September with a machine with hollow metal tubes or teeth that remove dirt plugs from the lawn. Avoid pee-type devices only holes in the lawn. Fail to touch or cut soil samples after aeration. Then add fertilizer to restore the grass. Sanford Lawn Service has worked on these fields from years and have good worth.

Blue weed control

Most herbicide wide-leaf products consist of a mixture of two or three of the following chemicals: 2,4-D, dicamba, MCPP and triclopyr. Applications of broadleaf herbicide fall are safer and more effective than spring or summer applications. In the fall we move perennial carbohydrate weeds to their roots.

According to the Landscaping Aberdeen If a herbicide is applied to weeds, it will also trans-late to the roots, resulting in complete destruction of weeds. Horticultural activity settles in the fall, it also reduces the risk of injury caused by herbicide drift for orchards and gardens, fruit trees and ornamental plants. Planting. The late summer or early fall is an excellent time to establish new lawns or thin or heavily damaged gardens. Sowing can begin in the middle of August and must be completed by September 30.
