Your lawn is pretty much the first thing people see when they visit your home, but if you’re like a lot of homeowners, it doesn’t look as good as you’d like it to. While you can always get help maintaining or rebuilding your lawn, there are some things you can do on your own this year. Use these fall landscaping tips to get your lawn under control as soon as possible.
- Make sure your grass is getting enough water to stay healthy. If there’s a drought in your area, you need to be watering at least twice per week, making sure enough water gets through to fully soak your soil each time. Water in the early morning to reduce water waste.
- Cut your glass a little bit lower during the fall months than you did in the summer. Setting your mower to cut grass about two-inches high will help keep it from matting under the weight of snow and heavy leaves.
- Focus on getting rid of perennial weeds in the fall. Herbicides that contain glyphosphate or MCPP are your best bet to keep weeds at bay all year long.
