Proper lawn care is incredibly important for your commercial space, as the way that you present your space says a lot about your business. Your lawn is the first thing that a client, customer, or even an employee will notice when they enter your property. If a commercial lawn has dead grass, an abundance of weeds, and overgrown shrubs, it gives the impression that the business is not a welcoming place. Further, a lawn that isn’t properly cared for might make your clients, customers, and employees feel that they won’t be cared for. Proper lawn care is one of the ways your business can make that great first impression. The following are some ways you can care for your lawn this fall.
Timely Lawn Care is Crucial
If you want a beautiful lawn all year around — so you can continue making that first great impression — then you need to maintain timely lawn care in the fall. This includes raking leaves. When leaves cover the ground and are ignored, the grass is blocked from getting the sunlight and necessary nutrients it needs. This means that come springtime, your grass will be dead. Neglected leaves can also contribute to lawn diseases.
Cut and Water Your Lawn
In addition, continue to cut your grass until the grass frosts. Your grass still grows until then, and longer grass could increase your risk of fungi. This goes for watering your lawn as well (if your weather has been free of rain).
Prep for Winter with Fertilizer
You should still add fertilizer to your lawn in the fall in order to protect your lawn throughout the winter. This will help to protect your grass from disease, root damage, and cold weather so that it will be at its full strength in the spring.
Overseed Your Lawn
Fall is also the best time to overseed your lawn. Overseeding will maintain a dense lawn, which will further protect against possible damage. This is also a good time to overseed your lawn with ryegrass if you want to maintain that first great impression with a green lawn throughout the coming months.
