Recommended Fall Lawn Care Tips for Ohio
Caring for your lawn during fall is important, as your lawn prepares to go dormant for the winter. Follow these fall lawn care tips to make the most of the fall season before winter begins.
Fertilizing during the fall will provide an added boost of nutrients that will be stored the soil and plant tissue for use during winter dormancy. The roots of your grass will continue to grow throughout the winter, and rely on this stored food to make it until spring. Fall is also the ideal season to aerate your lawn, to encourage the absorption of nutrients and oxygen and combat soil compaction from summer traffic. The Bio Green® soil amending fertilizer fall application promotes plant and soil health for winterizing & spring recovery.
If your lawn is beginning to thin from heavy use during summer, consider overseeding or power seeding. Seeding during fall will increase the thickness of your turf and improve the health and look of your lawn, for a lush green in spring. A thick turf is also the best natural defense against weeds and insects.
Keeping your lawn free from leaves doesn’t only look better, it helps keep your lawn healthy. Leaves block vital sunlight, which is essential during fall as your lawn stores up food and nutrients for the winter. Rake or blow your lawn free of leaves at least once a week. You can rake leaves off the lawn but still use some of them as mulch in your planting beds. By leaving these leaves on the ground within designated parts of your landscape — those leaves will benefit wildlife and your garden as well.
When was the last time you had your mower blades sharpened? The frequency you need to sharpen the blades will vary depending on the size of your lawn and how often you mow. You can keep your blades sharper for longer by avoiding mowing over leaves and sticks.
