Resources, information, tips, and more regarding lawn care in Oregon.
Most people tend to think that spring and summer are the most important seasons for landscape care, but in fact, fall is actually the most important time. During autumn, your landscape starts to transition into dormancy and store up energy for the upcoming cold months. Aerating, seeding, and fertilizing your lawn in the fall is pertinent to its survival during winter.
Here are some tips on how to prepare your landscaping for cooler weather in Happy Valley, Troutdale, Gresham, and nearby areas.
Before entering winter dormancy, your lawn goes into storage mode, gathering as much food as possible to sustain itself throughout the winter. Aeration loosens dry, compacted soil and provides access for light, water, and nutrients to reach deep down into the root system. Providing this access to your lawn’s roots is vital to ensuring it receives the proper amount of nutrition it needs to store up energy for the upcoming dormant period. After aerating, follow up with seeding and fertilization for the greatest benefit. The seeds you lay down now will take root during the winter and grow in thick and lush come spring, and fall fertilization will provide the nutrients they need to remain healthy all winter long.
