Do you dream of a beautiful lawn in the spring? Then your lawn care starts in the fall. However, fall lawn care doesn't have to be complicated, especially when you turn to The Southern Landscape Group. Here's how we can help you avoid all the headaches by taking over these common chores.

3 Fall Lawn Care Chores

1. Sprinkler Winterization

As part of our professional irrigation maintenance, you can expect us to winterize your system. We flush the entire system and ensure that your backflow is working properly before winter. If you try to do this yourself or fail to do it at all, you risk busted underground pipes or allowing lawn contaminants into your home's tap water. But with professional help, you can rest assured these things won't happen.

2. Aeration & Fertilization

For a healthy lawn that will bounce back in the spring, you need a well-balanced soil microbiome. The best way to achieve this is to aerate and fertilize in the fall. Aeration opens up the ground, reducing compacted soil, and allows for water and oxygen to flow deep into the roots of the lawn. Fertilization then feeds these roots, giving them the nutrients they need to store over the winter. 

3. Remove Lawn Debris

As the leaves begin to change and ultimately fall to the ground, keeping them off your lawn will help keep your grass healthy. Removing lawn debris also guarantees you don't allow a layer of thatch to get too thick, nor do you supply areas where snow, mold, and other lawn diseases can occur. Furthermore, a neat and tidy lawn elevates your curb appeal and is more welcoming for guests.
