Handy Tips: Fall Lawn Care

Fall is just around the corner and you know what that means – no more yard work, right? Not necessarily but, with a few tips, you can enjoy doing a lot less mowing and weeding.

If you’re renting a home in Northwest Florida with a yard, then you are probably quite sick of mowing the yard every single week. Frequent rains keeps the grass, ugh, quite healthy so you have to get out there in the Florida heat pretty frequently to keep things manageable and looking great. The cooler temps of the fall have the grass slowing down, but not stopping. Continue to mow once a week until the grass stops growing. Be sure to manage your mower’s height in relation to the slower growing, as well. This is also a great time to fertilize your lawn in order to sustain great looking grass and the health of the lawn through the colder temps. Cooler temps also mean less rain so be generous with the water hose in the mornings and evenings. With these simple temps, your grass should look great through the fall and reappear green and healthy come spring!
