Fall Lawn Care

Pesticide Free New Canaan has some great tips to get our lawns into good shape for next year.  A SOIL TEST will take the guesswork out of fertilizing.  See link.  AERATE & SEED – now is the time!  MOW your grass a little shorter, to about 2″, to promote growth.  MULCH leaves in place, as long as they don’t accumulate to more than 1/2″ they will form compost and feed the grass as they decompose.  FERTILIZE if your soil test tells you so, and apply a slow-release organic fertilizer.
