Caring for your Lawn in the Autumn

Autumn is one of the best times of the year it’s the time of crunchy leaves, hot drinks, cozy jumpers, thick socks, fresh air, rosy cheeks, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and crackling fires. With the remains of summer, autumn is the time for a fresh start and to pick off what has been left off the previous season. It’s also the perfect time to spruce up your yard or garden. Here are some tips to help you aggregate your space:

Quench Your Garden’s Thirst
The autumn season is not as dry as the summer, hence, your lawn does not need as much watering. It is important, however, to continue watering your plants in moderation over the fall to keep irritation at a minimal level when the winter season springs.

Aerate, Aerate, Aerate
The best moment to aerate your garden is during the fall or spring season where it’s considered the growing periods because the grass can heal and fill in any open areas after the soil plugs are removed.

Mow Your Lawn
Mowing your lawn frequently during the autumn is an important aspect of making sure it stays in pristine and manicure condition. Adjust your blade height to avoid cutting your lawn too short. At least cutting your grass at 2 inches during the fall helps to maintain its vitality.

Seed Your Turf
Seeds usually germinate in the cool season, and there’s no better time to do that than in the autumn where the temperature is as cool as around 550 degrees Fahrenheit. High priced seedlings are recommended to prepare for the dry wintry season. Cheap-priced seeds often consist of weed seeds whose turf roots fail to thrive. The higher cost seeds often thrive through drought, insects, and famine.

Add Shade to Your Greenery 
A gazebo or greenhouse is the perfect and most practical way of growing your plants and greenery amidst different weather conditions. You can choose varied greenhouses available online or through If you already have an existing shade or gazebo, make it a point to ensure that your canopy is still in pristine condition. A replacement top for your gazebo might be needed if it is no longer able to provide optimal shade and protection from torrid weather conditions. Autumn is a serene and romantic moment to bask in the crisp cool weather and lounge about your patio or lawn.

Don’t limit yourself to enjoying the comforts of your outdoor space in the spring and summer. Explore and enjoy!
