With winter weather right around the corner, it is easy to start neglecting your lawn and garden. Here at Anthony Landscapes, the leaders in designing and installing paver patios in Montgomery County, PA, we look out for your lawn regardless of the season.
With these five tips for fall and winter, your lawn will stand out once the snow melts in early spring.
#1 Keep Mowing Your Lawn – The best advice you can follow is to keep mowing your lawn regardless of the weather. Eventually, your lawn will stop growing once the weather becomes cooler. However, until then, you should cut your grass if it is growing. Grass that becomes too long will shade spots on the lawn, leading to some dead areas.
#2 Seed The Lawn – After a long summer, your lawn may experience some ugly areas from the summer sun or foot traffic. We recommend seeding the entire lawn and then focusing on the problem areas. A rule of thumb is two to four pounds of seed for every 1,000 square feet of lawn.
#3 Rake The Leaves – We know raking the leaves isn’t something you want to do on your day off from work, but leaving leaves scattered across your lawn cause multiple fungal diseases. It may not seem like much, but raking your leaves can go a long way when it comes to making sure your lawn looks beautiful when spring rolls around.
#4 Use Your Leaves – Instead of bagging up your leaves and throwing them out with your weekly trash, use the leaves to make your own mulch. You can turn your raked leaves into mulch by running a lawn mower over the pile of leaves. Your chewed up leaves can be great mulch for your garden area.
#5 Weeds – Just like most other plants during fall, weeds are in a state of energy absorption. Spraying weed killing products over your lawn is a surefire way to eliminate those pesky unwanted guests.
