Summer may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean you can let your landscaping go. Envirotech recommends that you take care of your lawn, trees, bushes and shrubs now before Old Man Winter sets in. You want to make sure that your landscaping stays lush during seasonal changes.
What You Need To Do This Fall for Landscaping
According to Envirotech there are a few things that you can do to keep your landscaping happy during the slow growth months.
Continue to mow your grass until it isn’t growing, even if it is cold outside. If the blades of grass get long they will become shade for the other blades. Long grass will also become packed down, which can promote snow mold. Keep your lawn about 3” all year round. This gives the area enough sun.
When you sign a landscaping agreement with Envirotech, your soil will be tested during the fall. The fall is also a good time to put down grass seed. The testing will determine your nutrient and pH. This identifies soil deficiencies that will need to be fixed before spending any more money on landscaping. Soil is the foundation for your landscaping and needs to be healthy.
As mentioned above, fall is the perfect time to reseed your lawn. After your soil has been tested, Envirotech will aerate and seed the parts of your grass that didn’t fare well during the warmer months. Depending on the condition of your lawn, you may need to plant three pounds of grass seed for about 1,000 square feet of grass.
