”Contrary to popular opinion, fall is the best time of the year for lawn care. Fertilization, weed and thatch control, establishment of new lawns, and renovation of poor quality lawns should be done over the next few weeks.” —University of Illinois Extension
Fall is the best time to make a positive and lasting impact on your lawn.
We put together a few questions to test your lawn expertise and maybe help a few with some timely information. Take the lawn Quiz and see if you’re a secret Yard pro in the know. You will get scored but don't worry if you miss one or two, you'll get the answers you missed and you can get an A+ the next time : )
Experts Agree- Fall is the best time to make a positive and lasting impact on a lawn. The secret to a beautiful lawn and landscape is not only fixing existing problems but also proactively maintaining the needs before problems arise. Now is the time to think about next year’s lawn. Fall is the best time to aerate. Roots do most of their growing in the fall and early spring, leading to a thicker lawn next year. Fall is also the best time for seeding with no conflicts with standard weed control techniques. By incorporating newer breeds of grass, a lawn will be more drought, insect, and disease resistant. Balance Upgrade Fertilizer will push root growth and Organic Upgrade Fertilizer will stimulate microbial life in the soil for a thicker, healthier, more disease resistant lawn next year. Aeration will help your lawn be its best, and stay its best. Together these services build your lawn for the long term and stop problems before they start. Note- Perennial cool-season grasses (your lawn) have the best chance to overcome thin areas with two to three good feedings or root enhancing services like aeration in the fall. Next spring when your lawn comes out of dormancy, it will build more root expansion and top growth off the roots that have expanded in the fall.

-SAVE EVEN MORE-
Starter Fertilizer will push vegetative growth helping grassroots to fill in more vigorously.
Fertilizers containing a higher percentage of phosphorus are considered starter fertilizers because this nutrient is critical to the proper growth and development of turfgrass seedlings, sprigs, and sod. Phosphorous is indicated as the middle number in a fertilizer analysis this nutrient encourages root development and elongation especially during peak root growth periods in the spring and fall.
SOIL NEEDS MORE THAN JUST FERTILIZER
Make your lawn all it can be. Thicken new lawns and reinvigorate old lawns by aerating, overseeding, and fertilizing with only the best-upgraded fertilizer treatments to maximize results. First, we open up the lawn with double-pass aeration, then overseed with highest quality seed, and fertilize with special starter and organic fertilizers. This seed is more resistant to insects and disease than the grass of yesterday.
