Now that the weather has changed, most homeowner’s put the thought of their lawn on the back burner. Summer has come and gone, fall is here, and most likely snow, unfortunately, is right around the corner. The last thing you want to think about is your lawn when it is underneath a huge pile of snow, and that is totally fine, IF you have taken necessary steps to prepare your lawn for the winter. It’s really not too hard- so let us explain a few simple steps that can provide major benefits for your lawn next time spring rolls around.
The first thing you will want to do is provide your lawn with a big, hearty meal of fertilizer. Fertilizing in the fall can go a long way in the overall health of your lawn. The reason being is that your lawn is absorbing more in the fall: more water, more nutrients, and more fertilizer. The more TLC you can give your lawn at this time, the greater the results next year.
The next thing you will want to do is apply a sulphur treatment to your lawn. A sulphur treatment can help balance the pH level of your lawn, and for those who don’t know; the result of low pH levels can cause your lawn to grow slowly or took look yellow-like. If you have a lawn that is too acidic or too alkaline, it restricts nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium from dissolving into the roots. Sulphur can reduce these problems and create a lusher, more green looking lawn.
