How to Create a Summer to Fall Lawn Care Plan


How to Create a Summer to Fall Lawn Care Plan

Just because summer came to a close, that doesn’t mean that your lawn care ended as well. Fall lawn treatments are crucial to a year-long maintenance plan. Apart from clearing out old or dead plants and overgrowth, fall is the best time to plant perennials and plan and prep your garden for the spring.

Contact us today for a customized lawn treatment plan for your home.


How Much Water Does Your Lawn Need?

As the summer heat slowly fades, you’ll need to readjust your watering schedule. Yes, your lawn will still need to be watered regularly to keep it healthy. September and October can be two of the driest months of the year. Since the growth rate of the warm season turf is slowing down, you can decrease your watering to 2-3 times per week, or as needed depending on rainfall.


Planning & Preparation with Perennials!

Then, it’s time for the fun part – perennials! Now is a great time to change up the look of your yard with a variety of colors and textures. Fall is also a great time to plant any new trees and shrubs you wish to add, as they won’t have to fight against the heat and moisture loss of the summer.

If you’ve got a green thumb, here are some fall preparation tips for your garden! 


Everything from Cutting Grass to Killing Pests

If you live in the South, you know that grass doesn’t stop growing until it frosts over in the winter. Even though you may not have to mow every weekend like in peak growing season, you still will have to give your lawn the occasional trim. Once it does frost over, it’s the perfect time to do any necessary maintenance on your mower. Sharpen the blades, check the spark plugs, and change the oil! Check any other outside tools for repairs or maintenance as well.

Also, just because it’s fall doesn’t mean the pests disappear! You still have to keep up with your pest control, both for the bugs looking to attack your lawn and those looking to invade your home. Waynes can help check the perimeter of your home to make sure there aren’t any bugs trying to get inside to escape the cool air. Pest problems that don’t seem like a big deal in the fall can bloom into huge issues the following year, so make sure you are ahead of it!


If this feels like too many things to keep track of, contact us today! We can put together a lawn treatment plan tailored to your home’s needs.
