I have been hearing it is very healthy when doing Denver lawn care to keep your lawn fertilized in the fall. I have never done this, believing spring to be the most essential time to fertilize. However, I have been seeing many of my neighbors fertilizing, and thing it might not be a bad idea to do it myself.
Of course, first I wanted to do some research and see if fall fertilizing really was healthy for Denver lawn care. It turns out it is! As temperatures drop, the blades of the grass weaken, which is no surprise. However, this makes fall the perfect time to fertilize. With weaker blades the fertilizer can be more effective, giving nutrient not just to the grass blades, but the deeper roots. The deeper roots will hold the nutrients all the way into spring, making sure when temperatures rise in the spring, the grass starts growing strong again. Of course, if the fertilizing is going to get down into the roots it is important to mow your lawn first. It’s also a good idea to rake up any leaves in your yard.
Now things are picking up at work and unfortunately I do not have the time to get out in the yard and fertilize. My wife also will not do it, because, well, she really doesn’t do much of anything. I’ve been looking into Denver lawn care services that specialize in lawn fertilization. I found a great one with decent prices. Also, since I’m thinking towards lawn in the spring now, anyway, I’ve lucked out and found that they have a special fifteen percent off deal for spring fertilizing if you agree to sign up in the fall. It sounds like a pretty great deal to me, and I know my lawn will be taken care of when spring rolls around.
If anyone has any other fall Denver lawn care tips, please feel free to share them.
