Fall Lawn Care Tips Colorado

Fall Lawn Care Tips Colorado

It’s only a matter of time before Jack Frost will be nipping at our noses and the woes of mowing and weeding will be distant memories….but wait! Before you hang up your garden hose, let’s get down to ‘grass tacks’ and get your lawn prepped for fall. Here are some fall lawn care tips for Colorado.

The first step in fall lawn care is to aerate. Lawn aeration breaks up our Colorado clay soils and allows for moisture, fertilizer and grass seeds to settle in. Lawn aeration also helps to remove the buildup of thatch which is dead organic matter.  Thatch is thought to feed insects and also promotes weed growth. Lawn Pros offers deep core lawn aeration service using the best lawn aeration equipment and techniques you can find.

Fall is the best time of year to fertilize Colorado’s lawns. Fertilizer contains three primary (and many secondary) nutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Nitrogen promotes strong color and top growth, phosphorus stimulates root development, and potassium helps with disease resistance and water retention. For the best results, your lawn should be given these nutrients in evenly spaced treatments throughout the year. Fall fertilization produces dense, green spring lawns without the mowing chores that come with spring fertilization. It should be a part of every good lawn care program. Get lawn fertilization today for only $39.

Fall grass seed planting is an excellent way to fill in the bare spots in your lawn. Typically, fall weather has an ideal amount of rain fall and temperatures for grass seed germination. You have two options for fall grass seed planting. You can plant the seeds in September and the grass will germinate and establish this year, or you can plant the seeds after this, and they will stay dormant for the winter and germinate in early spring, when the conditions are ideal as well. The bonus of a late fall grass seed planting is that many of the local birds will have left by then, making the seed less vulnerable to them. Over-seeding after aeration provides the perfect nursery pockets for the new grass seeds. Then the winter rain or snow will quickly cover it up until spring. Get overseeding today for only $69.

Don’t mow turf shorter in late fall. Leaving turf a bit longer helps to keep it healthy over the long cold winter months.

Finally, adjust sprinklers for fall watering; with the cooler days, the lawn needs less water.

Do all these things and your lawn will thank you next spring by greening up early and staying healthy all season long. You can even save money by getting one of Lawn Pros Fall Packages!
