Why Your Lawn Needs Fall Fertilization

Why Your Lawn Needs Fall Fertilization

Your lawn requires many things to keep it strong, healthy, and green throughout the year. When fertilization is mentioned, most people think about springtime application, as this is when your grass is growing and needs all the food it can get to thrive. What many people don’t realize, however, is that your lawn also needs fertilization applications in the autumn.

Fall fertilization sets up a strong foundation for your lawn to sustain the winter by providing it with essential nutrients and helps your lawn recover from dormancy in the spring. Here are some reasons why your lawn needs fall fertilization in Happy Valley, Troutdale, Gresham, and the surrounding areas of Oregon.


Autumn Encourages Optimum Nutrient Absorption

Fall is the most important time of year for lawn fertilization. Fertilizing in the spring provides your freshly-awoken lawn with a boost of nutrients to help fuel its growth, but fall fertilization provides it with energy reserves needed to sustain itself throughout the cold winter months. Autumn brings with it cooler temperatures and moisture, both of which are needed to help your turf absorb your applied fertilizer. When applied in the fall, your lawn has ample time to break down the nutrients provided by the fertilizer and store these for food and energy to use throughout the winter.

Autumn Cleanups Prepare Your Lawn for the Winter

When winter rolls around, your lawn can sustain some pretty harsh damage due to the cold and snow. A lawn that has not been properly cleaned up by our experts is already in a weakened state throughout the fall, and when winter hits it can devastate your lawn. Leaves that blanket your yard suffocate your lawn, preventing the grass from going through photosynthesis and slowly killing it entirely. Pests also thrive under wet leaves, as do various diseases, fungi, and mold.

Fall cleanup will rid your yard of all these issues and ensure your lawn has the best nutrition and is in the best health to endure the winter months and grow in strong and healthy in spring.
