In the coming months there are a few tips that all homeowners should be aware of. These fall services are right around the corner, so make sure to mark your calendars for these recommended services for your property.
Fall Aeration: This service typically takes place from August-October. It is one of the best services you can perform for your turf. Aeration helps alleviate soil compaction, promotes deeper root growth, provides a better delivery system for nutrients entering the soil, and also improves overall air exchange.
Fall Overseeding: Overseeding goes hand in hand with your fall aeration and helps to create a thick and lush lawn. This will also help fill in any bare areas that may have struggled during the year. We recommend laying down 4 lbs of seed per 1,000 ft² with our specialty blend of fescue and bluegrass seed.
Fall Sprinkler Winterization: It is extremely crucial that you ensure your underground sprinkler system is properly winterized before the first freeze of the season, which typically is mid to late October. Proper winterization includes blowing forced air through the entire system to prevent expansion of frozen water, which can damage your backflow, valves, and even mainline from your basement. This simple service can save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in repair work if not done correctly.
These are just a few ways to ensure you are prepared for the fall months and keep your property in the best condition. If you are looking for help with these services, have any questions or need more information, contact the licensed professionals at Elkhorn Lawn Care and begin enjoying the beautiful fall weather in your perfect yard.
