Fall Is For Lawn Care

 

 

Fall is the time to plant a new lawn or revitalize an old one.

To begin a new lawn or to improve an existing one do it in the fall. Mow the grass, aerate and dethatch. Then sow new grass seed or scatter grass seed into the existing lawn. Add mulch for a new lawn. Water with one inch of water a week until the seed begins to grow.

Organic lawns can be just as lush and beautiful as those grown with synthetic chemicals. Use compost, earthworm castings, and natural fertilizers instead to protect groundwater, rivers, lakes etc.
