Most people don’t realize that the secret to a great lawn lies in fall lawn care. That’s right gardeners, the ugly words, lawn maintenance. But guess what!? It doesn’t have to be that scary! Here are a few tricks we’ve learned over the years, and want to pass on to you, our valued customers to help you get the most satisfaction out of all your hard work.
Hoping your crabgrass will “die off” this winter? Sorry, it doesn’t work that way! Weeds spend ALL FALL absorbing energy.

Most experts agree that fall is the most important time to fertilize. Mid to late fall, use a dry fertilizer over the entire lawn to encourage root growth. Solution? Test your soil, and come on down to see us! We have options as far as fertilizers, but there isn’t any magic number for fall fertilization, unless you know what your levels are. If you don’t have the time, a standard 10-10-10 will work just fine!
