Fall Really Is The Start Of The Growing Season

by Linda Kraft, Meticulous Landscaping, Inc.

The natural thought is that spring is the start of the lawn, tree and shrub growing season. But it actually is during this time of the year that your living outdoor investments are taking in available nutrients and water to sustain them through the dormant winter and prepare them to awaken in the spring.  Available nutrients are found in the soil such as nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium which are essential to the health of a plant.  During the month of September and then again in November, Meticulous Landscaping, completes a balanced slow release fertilizer application to all lawn areas to ensure these nutrients are available to the grass plant.
To the homeowner, we recommend providing these same nutrients to your trees and shrubs.  This can either be completed using a quality balanced slow release fertilizer product in either a liquid, granular or staked form.  These products are readily available at home and garden centers.  Remember to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations to ensure the best results.
Annual core aeration and seeding of the lawn is also highly recommended for the following reasons.  The practice of aerating your lawn has many benefits such as reducing soil compaction, allowing oxygen into the soil and bringing those valuable microorganisms up to the soil surface.  After several years, mature grass plants begin to slow down their reproductive rate.  Since a blade of grass lives only an average of 45 to 60 days, production of new tillers must continually outpace the dieback of older leaves.  Young grass will produce tillers faster than older grass.  Therefore, one of the most important secrets to maintaining a healthy, thick lawn is to make sure your grass is young.  The practice of overseeding lawns is the easiest way of keeping grass young.  The month of September is the perfect time of year to make an application of new grass seed.  Soil temperatures are still warm enough and irrigation systems are still in operation for the season to promote optimal germination of the grass seed.  But, remember the quality of the grass seed will directly relate to the quality of the grass plant, use a quality seed consisting of a fescue, rye and bluegrass blend. Please remember to keep the newly seeded lawn moist to promote optimal germination.
