Late October to mid-November is a great time to fertilize your lawn one last time. As the temperatures get colder and the days are shorter, grass plants will begin to slow their growth above ground as the focus shifts to the roots. Feeding the lawn will provide food for root system development and carbohydrate storage. Fertilizing will also improve your lawn next spring. Apply
Winter Survival Fall Lawn Food. This low nitrogen formula gives your lawn the nutrients it needs to grow thick and healthy.
Rake the Leaves
A small covering of leaves can be easily mulched by your lawn mower, but if they accumulate too much, rake them or use a leaf blower and remove them. An excess of leaf cover on your lawn can prevent sunlight and air from getting to the grass.
Keep on Mowing...
Grass will continue to grow into early winter so continue to mow as needed. Reduce the height of the lawn gradually by lowering the mowing height two to three mowings prior to your very last cutting. Two inches as a final cut is best.
