As lawn care professionals, we know how to grow abundantly healthy grass. The key is to fertilize your lawn in fall. This is an effective method because we are able to give your lawn the nutrients it needs to store before the snow hits and guarantees that your lawn will be ready for its spring awakening. This process gives you a headstart on your lawn’s growth as soon as the snow melts.

So, let’s explain the science behind this industry secret; cold air tells grass to shift its nutrients into its root system as a part of a survival reaction. This shift puts your grass’ food source in a more convenient and efficient place so that when spring does finally come, the warmth prompts your grass to grow more immediately rather than to slowly wake from its cold-protective state. Ultimately, this boost means faster nutrient absorption and faster growth. Lush, thick grass means that weeds will not have space to grow and are eliminated from your lawn.

Overall, it is in your best benefit to be proactive when its comes to all of your fall preparedness and your lawn is not exempt. Call us today to book our professional lawn care services and we can get started on getting that iconic full, green lawn you want in the springtime.
