TruGreen has put together some great Fall lawn care facts to help keep your lawn healthy.
Fall Lawn Care Prep
According to the majority of homeowners (79 percent) surveyed, “in selling a home, it is important for the lawn to be in top shape to get the best price.” Fall is the best time to prep lawns, trees and shrubs for spring’s growth cycle, especially with the home buying season right around the corner.
“Lawns become distressed from summer entertaining with family and friends and require care throughout fall,” said Ben Hamza, Ph.D., TruGreen expert and director of technical operations. “A good fall feed is important to lawn, tree and shrub health as roots continue active growth before the dormant winter months and store reserves needed for hungry plants in spring.”
In TruGreen’s two new fall webisodes, Jason Cameron, licensed contractor and TV host, talks about fall lawn care and also how your lawn personality can be a way to improve your home’s curb appeal. In episode one, he describes the top three types of outdoor spaces and also provides guidance on corrective pruning in fall to prevent dead or overgrown plants from detracting from your home’s personality. In episode two, Cameron reinforces the importance of fall lawn prep with emphasis on core aeration to help your lawn breathe and to strengthen roots.
