Your lawn is something that you’re proud of. We understand that. After all, our company was built from the lawn up, and our promise to our clients is to treat every lawn like it’s our own. But lawns are much more than just a curb appeal element. They’re also the place where you, your friends, and your family spend time.
The front lawn of your home, whether it has landscaping or not, is the first thing that you see every day when you come home from a long day’s work. It’s a reminder of why you invest so much energy into what you are doing while you are away, and that’s just one of the reasons that lawn care is so important.
The backyard lawn is where you, your family, and your friends congregate to spend time together around a fire, a meal, or the fellowship of each other. It’s a space that you want to look and feel welcoming.
So when fall sets in and the weather begins to change, it can be frustrating to see your lawn and landscaping start to look worse for the wear. But despite the fact that it appears things are dying, this is actually the perfect time of year to begin preparing for a healthy lawn in the coming year.
In today’s blog from Lawnovations in Tulsa, we provide a few tips as to what kind of fall lawn care you should consider to get the most out of your lawn in spring and summer next year.

Remove Leaves From Your Lawn
If you have anything other than pine tree in your yard, they’re sure to start shedding leaves soon if they haven’t already started. It’s easy to go from a few on the lawn to a solid covering quicker than you think. Make sure to keep your leaves cleaned up — they prevent much-needed sunlight and moisture from reaching your grass and will prevent your fall lawn from looking its best.
Aerate Your Lawn
Making sure that enough soil reaches the root system of your grass is crucial for long-term health. Just like you aerate in the spring ahead of the warmer summer weather, this is the time of year to help your grass breathe before it gets too cold. If you don’t have the time or the tools, contact Lawnovations in Tulsa. We provide professional lawn aeration services at a reasonable price and will be happy to help.
Mow Your Lawn
Continuing to mow your lawn into the fall is an important part of keeping your grass green and growing well late into the season. Every two weeks, make sure to lower your mower blade to bring down the height of your lawn a little bit at a time for healthy fall grass. Two important things to keep in mind when mowing at any time of year are to keep a sharp blade on your mower (we recommend sharpening your blade seasonally) to prevent tearing your grass and to be cautious not to cut more than one-third of your grass’ length in a single trimming.
Overseed Your Lawn
During summer, you will have likely gotten some sun and heat damage to your lawn. As temperatures cool, you can take advantage of a little less sun and heat to restore your grass by seeding your lawn. Overseeding at this time of year can help restore dead patches and make life easier for you come spring.
