Cooler weather is approaching, and it's important to maintain your property for the approaching winter season. Once temperatures are consistently below 15 degrees, your lawn will start storing up nutrients in preparation for winter. This is a good time to begin your fall lawn care regimen.

Rake the area

Make sure all leaves are removed before the winter. If you let snow cover the leaves, you will have to deal with them in the spring. Dead leaves left this long can impact the regrowth of healthy grass next year.

Reseed thin or bare areas

After a long hot summer, it's not unusual for lawns to show signs of wear. By reseeding after the summer's heat subsides (and before winter), you can repair the damage and give grass an 8 or 9 month jump start on root growth.

Aerify your lawn. Aerifying combats soil compaction and thatch buildup. It also enables oxygen, water, and nutrients to reach the grass' roots more easily. If you are aerifying, make sure this is done before reseeding.

Apply fertilizer

One of the best ways to keep grass vibrant on the surface and healthy down into their roots is to fertilize. Fertilizer should be applied in the fall to promote good root development. Fall's cooler temperatures provide the perfect setting for grass to regain its strength. The morning dew also delivers moisture to help turf absorb the fertilizer. Most of the benefits of fall fertilization will be seen the following spring and summer.
