Put down those roots this fall

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 by The Press in Social News

Whether you're maintaining an existing lawn or starting a new one, fall is the best time to do the ground work to ensure good results for next season.

For maintaining your lawn, the soil should be tested, and recommended amounts of lime and fertilizer should be applied. Fall is the best time to fertilize your lawn because the roots are actively growing and absorbing nutrients. This means a denser and healthier lawn better able to withstand the winter. In addition, the grass stores many nutrients in its roots, so that it is ready to produce a lush spring growth.
