Mowing and Watering – Continue to mow and water as needed. You should lower the mower blade to the lowest setting for the last few cuts to reduce the amount of grass that will brown during the winter.
Aeration and Fertilization – Aeration loosens the soil and allows air, nutrients and water to reach grass roots. Fertilizing in the fall gives the quick growing roots extra nutrients to remain strong and healthy.
Weed Control – At this point, weeds are taking in anything the can to survive. Apply a herbicide to get rid of any weeds that may have invaded your lawn.
