The end of Summer doesn’t mean the end of lawn care. If fact, September could be the most important month because the cooler temperatures and occasional rain are ideal growing conditions for grass. So, what you do now will give you a jump on a healthy lawn in the Spring.
The first task this September should be aeration. Aerating your soil now allows oxygen, water, and fertilizer to easily reach grass roots. Once that is done, fertilize. Fertilizing now delivers nutrients for your grass to grow deep roots and store nutrients in reserve for a healthy start next spring.
