Fall Lawn Fertilization
Here at Soils Alive, our goal is always to help you achieve the most healthy and beautiful lawn and landscaping using Eco-Friendly methods. Healthy soil means a healthy landscape. As we move into fall, now’s the time to think about fall maintenance tasks that can keep your lawn and landscape at peak performance.
A lush lawn and landscape requires care year-round, even in fall and winter. Most of us tend to get caught up with caring for our landscapes in spring and then it seems to fall off our priority list once summer hits. But did you know that the fall fertilization in the lawn and landscape is one of the most important of the year? Feeding your lawn in fall is what helps it weather winter stress so that it can look its best come spring. Fall core aeration and fertilization helps your grass produce a dense root system and healthy top growth that is more resistant to fall weed germination and competition.
If you’re on our Soil Building program, then your lawn will be fed with our special blend of liquid compost extract right on schedule. If you’re not a part of our program, or haven’t had your landscape fertilized or aerated in a while, now is the perfect time to do so! Read more about our Soil Building Program.
Our soils here in North Texas are heavy clay; as a result they become very compacted over time and can limit oxygen at the root zone and suffocate roots. Having your lawn aerated, at least once per year, can improve the soil by allowing more oxygen into the soil and improving drainage. Core aeration also stimulates beneficial microbial activity. We use special equipment to remove small plugs from the soil that remain on the lawn. Microbes in the soil plugs help break down grass clippings and other organic matter that can create problems with thatch in your lawn. It also helps stimulate new root growth.
Don't forget your lawn this fall! Give us a call to schedule a consultation, or a fall aeration and fertilization today972.272.9211, or contact us online.
