Lawn care in MA from AllGreenWhen you care for your lawn this Fall, there are some important do’s and don’ts to consider. AllGreen advises those interested in lawn care in MA to pay careful attention.

DO…

…take measures to protect your lawn for the winter season. The land is the most moist in the Fall and the Spring so building up defenses now can only benefit you in the Spring. There are plenty of methods to increase grass growth and thicken your lawn.

DON’T…

…stop mowing your lawn. It is important that you continue to mow your lawn regularly. This allows the spouts of new grass to receive the proper amount of sunlight and grow quicker. Letting the grass grow for too long can suffocate the sprouts and negate all of your efforts to thicken your lawn.

DO…

…seed your lawn. No matter what method you choose to better your lawn, seeding is the only way to ensure that new grass will grow. There are options when it comes to seeding. Aeration is an important procedure that allows the land to breathe by cutting into the ground and creating air pockets. From there, you can over-seed to increase growth. Slice seeding is also an option, depending on the current condition of your lawn and how often the lawn is tread upon.

DON’T…

…stop watering your lawn. Making sure that the grass seedlings receive the right amount of water, as well as sunlight, is what will encourages them to germinate and grow. Watering is especially important after aeration because it feeds the deeper seeds as well as the land trapped under the previously existing layer of thatch, or dead grass and weeds.
