Fall Yard Tips

Here are some quick tips for Fall:

  • Picking up leaves and fir litter? Get your irrigation lines blown out (and it’s the law to get a double check every year ~$50). Rain, rain, rain but the pineapple current keeps us working out in it.
  • Broad-leaf weed killer is often made from chemicals that don’t react at temperatures below 65 degrees. Don’t spray anymore.
  • The leaf cleanup has begun! Mowing is done more to pickup leaf litter than to cut grass. We want more leaf on the lawn for winter so higher mows unless you have that tricky bent grass.

Finally, the rains, hopefully it won’t freeze our grass coming out of summer dormancy. Have you fertilized your lawn?
