Now’s the time to start preparing your lawn for the cold months ahead.

It’s important to properly take care of your lawn in the fall if you want it to look its best next year. Here’s what you should do to prepare for the spring:

  1. Rake It – Remove excess leaves as they’ll block light and trap moisture.
  2. Feed It – Fertilize your lawn in the fall to help repair any damaged roots.
  3. Seed It – Spread grass seed on bare patches to prevent future weeds.
  4. Drop It – Adjust the lawnmower down a level for the last mow of the season.

It may seem pointless to spend time working on your lawn now that summer’s starting to fade into fall but if you take the time to do it now, you’ll thank yourself next year when springtime rolls around!
