With the dryness of summer behind us, the fall offers the perfect weather to get your lawn prepped for next year. Take advantage of this fall’s weather for a healthier lawn that you can enjoy in just a few months. Here are a few tips from the experts that could help reduce your time in the spring spent on lawn care maintenance.

Seasonal Year Clean Up

Hillsborough Irrigation: Seasonal Year Clean Up 

Cleaning out the leaves, grass, and left over pollen from the summer is the first thing you should do for your seasonal year clean up. Take out plants that will not survive the winter and either transplant them in a large enough space in your home or throw them out. For landscaping that will come back annually, prune and shear within just an inch of the ground.

Cut the Lawn

While lush lawn during the summer is a great place for fun and games with your friends and family, during the fall it’s just more of a hassle. Contact your lawn care maintenance team to explain to them that you would like your lawn cut as low as possible.

Treat Your Lawn

 Hillsborough Irrigation: Treat Your Lawn

While New Jersey’s winters have been a little more brutal than usual, our weather can be less than predictable. Since we never know if we are going to have a warm or cool winter, contacting your lawn care professional is your best bet to make sure your soil pH levels are ideal.

Fertilize for the Future

The fall is actually the perfect time to fertilize your lawn. Full of nutrients, fertilizer will help your lawn store ‘food’ for the winter. Know the difference in fertilizer – selective will only kill weeds while non-selective will kill everything including grass


Hillsborough Irrigation: Aerate

While it is time consuming, aerating your lawn pays off big time. Basically you punch holes into your lawn so fertilizer, water, and air can reach the roots of the grass.
