Have you fertilized your lawn yet?
Fall patio Late October into early November is a great time to fertilize your lawn one last time this year.  As the temperatures get colder and the days are shorter, grass plants will begin to slow down their growth above ground.  The focus will shift to the roots and fertilizing the lawn will provide food for root system development and carbohydrate storage.  Fertilizing will also improve the chances of maintaining a quality lawn for next spring.  Use Winter Survival Fall Fertilizer to give your lawn the nutrients it needs to grow healthy, deep roots.  It is always a good idea to also apply Mag-I-Cal Calcium Fertilizer and Love Your Lawn-Love Your Soil.  This organic duo will not only raise the soil pH, but will improve the overall quality of the soil.  Any lawn will benefit from an application of each of these organic products.
Keep on Mowing

Be sure you continue to mow your lawn this fall.  For best results mow at a medium setting so that the grass height is no less than two inches tall.  When the grass is cut too short it puts stress on the plant and the roots slow down their growth.  When the grass is mowed at the correct height the roots can keep developing and the grass will thrive.  Keep your mower blade sharp through the fall or it will rip and tear the grass.  When the grass is torn it becomes weak and susceptible to diseases and lawn insect pests.

Leaves can do more harm than good

lawn man As we all know the leaves start to drop this time of the year.  A small covering of leaves can be easily chopped up by your lawn mower, but if they accumulate too much you should remove them.  An excess of leaf cover on your lawn can prevent sunlight and air from getting to the grass.  This can be be a real problem if you reseeded your lawn or planted new grass.  If the leaves are smothering the grass the new seedlings will have trouble maturing.  That is why it is very important to rake your lawn.  If you seeded already this fall and notice some bare spots due to rain wash out you can still apply Fall Magic or Black Beauty Ultra grass seed to fill in those areas.
This is your last chance!
