Step 5 - FALL (September / October)

We are now in the final growing period of the year. This application is preparing your lawn for the Winter months. During this application we will work on preventing Winter stress, as well as, promote healthy root development.


Core Aeration is probably one of the most beneficial mechanical treatments we can make to your lawn. This will reduce thatch and soil compaction, which is always a problem with clay soils.


Call to schedule your lawn for Aeration this fall if you haven't already done so!


RAIN and its effect on your application:


Moisture provided by rain will actually improve the performance of the fertilizer and many control products we apply.



1. When you mow your lawn for the last time, mow at a Mid-Level Setting. Do not allow grass to develop excess late season top growth, which can capture moisture and thus increase the chances of turf diseases.


2. Fall Clean-up should be completed so that the lawn is completely free of leaves and other debris.
