Fall Lawn Care:
Rake, dethatch or core aerate your lawn, this will allow for better penetration of food, water and seed. For crabgrass, remove smaller areas with a puller or spade and on larger areas be sure to lower lawn mower blades and bag crabgrass seeds for disposal.
Re-seed bare patches and over seed your lawn with Jonathan Green’s Fall Magic grass seed. Fall Magic Germinates in 10 to 14 days and is formulated for fall seeding. Over seeding is recommended every few years for the best results.
Apply a fall/winter fertilizer. This will help reduce the stress from the summer heat and promote a greener grass with deeper roots and also store some nutrients for next spring.
Apply a fast acting lime or Jonathan Green’s Mag-I-Cal. This will rapidly raise your soil’s pH improving the health of your lawn by releasing trapped nutrients from the soil to feed your grass.
