Why You Should Fertilize Your Lawn in Fall
Fall Lawn fertilizer will:
- Help rejuvenate and repair your lawn.
All lawns get stressed by summer heat, drought, heavy foot traffic, or a combination of those. Applying lawn food can help replenish frazzled, worn-out grass so it recovers quicker and better. Plus, a fall feeding provides a noticeable greening that lasts longer than an unfed lawn.
- Give roots a pre-winter nutrient boost.
Lawns get hungry, especially as they slow down at the end of the growing season. Fall lawn food helps your lawn grow stronger, deeper roots before cold weather and frozen soil set in.
- Make for a strong start to spring with a greener lawn.
During the dormant season, it’s natural for your lawn’s growth and energy to come to a near standstill. A fall feeding gives grass a big dose of essential nutrients to store for when they’re needed most: the spring growing season. Not only will that lead to a thicker, lusher lawn, but your grass will green up earlier by as many as 2 to 6 weeks!
In short, feeding your lawn in fall gives your lawn the strength, stamina, and support it needs to make it through the cold-weather months so it will emerge lush and green in early spring. Now that’s time well spent!
