Fall Lawn Care

Late Summer/Early Fall Growth Trends

Late summer and early fall are the best time of year to fertilize, aerate, and seed your lawn. During this time, the cooler temperatures trigger plants to slow the rate of growth. Similarly, plants begin to store nutrients and energy in their roots to prepare for dormancy. Combined with the cooler temperatures and increased moisture levels, this time of year is ideal for restoring and repairing your lawn.


The heat of summer places a lot of stress on your lawn. By the end of August, many lawns in our area are patchy and brown. As such, our annual lawn fertilization program includes a late summer/early fall treatment. Our team will assess your lawn’s specific needs and apply the appropriate treatment to help your lawn green up for fall and create a healthier, more verdant lawn for next year. Our granular, slow release fertilizer will continue to feed your lawn well into dormancy.

Lawn Repair

Similarly, late summer and early fall are the ideal time of year to repair thin or bare areas in your lawn. The cool, moist air creates ideal conditions for rapid seed germination and growth. Our team is skilled at completing minor lawn repairs as well as entire lawn renovations. Fall aeration and overseeding is the best way to thicken up your lawn for summer. Plus, by incorporating new species of grass into your lawn, our clients enjoy healthier, hardier lawns that are more resistant to summer stressors.
