This summer we finally handed our lawn over the the experts at TruGreen and the results have been great. Now that it’s fall our lawn received a much needed aeration from TruGreen and our lawn is looking better than ever. Now, if only our lawnmower didn’t break to mow it one last time before winter…

TruGreen has put together some great Fall lawn care facts to help keep your lawn healthy.

Fall Lawn Care Prep

According to the majority of homeowners (79 percent) surveyed, “in selling a home, it is important for the lawn to be in top shape to get the best price.” Fall is the best time to prep lawns, trees and shrubs for spring’s growth cycle, especially with the home buying season right around the corner.

“Lawns become distressed from summer entertaining with family and friends and require care throughout fall,” said Ben Hamza, Ph.D., TruGreen expert and director of technical operations. “A good fall feed is important to lawn, tree and shrub health as roots continue active growth before the dormant winter months and store reserves needed for hungry plants in spring.”

In TruGreen’s two new fall webisodes, Jason Cameron, licensed contractor and TV host, talks about fall lawn care and also how your lawn personality can be a way to improve your home’s curb appeal. In episode one, he describes the top three types of outdoor spaces and also provides guidance on corrective pruning in fall to prevent dead or overgrown plants from detracting from your home’s personality. In episode two, Cameron reinforces the importance of fall lawn prep with emphasis on core aeration to help your lawn breathe and to strengthen roots.

    We usually get ours aerated every couple of years, this year we didn’t but next year I will consider TruGreen to do ours, I didn’t know they offered it.

      Mine is a mix between functional and creative 🙂 Function comes first but I love adding creative touches.

        Awesome. Mine would be the other way around. Creativity then some functionality in there. 🙂

    It’s winter right now and we aren’t really doing much for our lawn, but before you know it, it will be Spring again! We need to do a better job of keeping out the weeds this year. They over take your lawn so quickly!

      I do not, they did provide me with a years worth of service and my lawn was a trainwreck. By the end of the year it was a gorgeous lush lawn again, I would recommend them.
