Time to renew your Johnson County cool season lawn
If you do only one thing this whole year, fertilize your lawn in September. It's hungry. Fertilizing now helps restore summer-stressed lawns. The next 3 months are prime growing conditions. Lawns that are well fed and healthy are more likely to survive winter's harsh conditions and green quickly come spring.
Now's also the time to overseed to thicken the lawn or fill in those bare patches. But don't wait — do it by mid-September. After September the chances for success drop rapidly with the temperatures.
Why should you care?
Lawns increase the property value of homes and stabilize soils, improving our water quality by preventing soil erosion.
