With the fall season of vibrant colors and cooler temperatures in full swing in Pittsburgh, it is time to prepare your lawn to endure the upcoming winter weather so it can be healthy and green when spring rolls around. The fall season is a critical time of the year for lawn care and maintenance that will help protect your lawn from the harsh elements of the wintertime.
Fertilize Your Lawn. By fertilizing your lawn in the fall season, you can provide your turf with essential nutrients that will help promote root and grass growth, which will, in turn, create a stronger, healthier lawn that can withstand the harsh winter conditions.
Mulch Leaves. As the leaves fall and cover your lawn, it is crucial to begin mulching them into smaller pieces. By mulching the leaves, you will allow vital sunlight to reach your lawn, rather than being blocked out by the leaves. If deprived of sunlight, your lawn could become thin and weak.
Weed Control. When you control annual and perennial weeds in the fall season, you can expect a lush green lawn come springtime. By killing weeds such as dandelions, which tend to be an issue in the warmer months, you can keep them from popping up in the spring.
The cooler temperatures and more moisture in the soil during the fall season provide you with an excellent opportunity to repair the damage caused by disease, insect damage, or summer stress. With Superior Lawn Care’s Fall Special Offer, we can prepare your lawn with the treatments it needs to stay strong and healthy throughout the fall and winter, helping you achieve a green and pristine spring lawn.
Aeration. Using a core aerator, we will remove plugs of earth from your lawn. This process helps loosen the compacted soil and allow your lawn to “breathe” better and in turn, allowing the roots of your grass to receive nutrients, air, and water more efficiently.
Lime Application. Your soil’s pH must be balanced to create the best growing conditions for your grass. Lime, crushed up limestone that is high in calcium, is expertly applied to your lawn, which helps to promote new grass growth and will also help your lawn better receive the fertilizer.
Overseeding. After the aeration and lime application are completed, we will overseed your lawn. This process introduces new grass seed to your lawn, helping to repair damage caused by disease, insects, and the summer heat.
