Grass Seeding Croton NY

Fall is here! The leaves are changing, the air is cooler and you may be wondering if those lawn improvement projects are even worth pursuing at this time. While many think that lawn maintenance isn’t top priority in the fall, our professionals at Friendly Lawn Care think differently. Here are a few grass seeding tips we have for residents of Croton, NY this fall!

Remove all leaves

Leaves falling onto the ground makes the fall season truly come to life. While leaves on the ground looks beautiful, it’s actually not good for the grass. They block sunlight and trap moisture. When the leaves start falling it’s important to rake or blow them away right away.

Cut It Consistently

As the weather begins to cool off many think that they don’t need to cut their grass anymore. But don’t even think about putting that lawn mower away just yet. Grass continues to grow up to the first hard frost of the winter season. It’s important to continue cutting your grass to the appropriate heights of 2 ½ to 3inches. If it gets too long your lawn can become vulnerable to fungi caused by snow mold. SO keep it short all season long.

Continue watering

Even though the fall means there’s more rain, more dew and less evaporation outdoors this may not be enough to keep the grass roots well hydrated in the fall. A moist lawn will help keep your grass healthy all the way into the winter. If your lawn isn’t getting at least an inch of water a week through rain and natural causes, then keep your sprinkler systems running even through the chilly weather. It’s all going to help keep your lawn alive and well!

Grass seeding is key

A dense lawn is a good protection against weeds which is why it’s important to seed your grass in the fall. Fall is the best time to seed because the ground is still warm, moisture is more plentiful, the evenings are cooler and the sun is not as hot as compared to the summer season. Seeding your lawn is the best decision you can make for your lawn this fall in Croton NY.
