There are many reasons for you to fertilize your lawn this fall.

When it comes to fertilizing your lawn, you may be thinking that it is a lost cause in the fall. With the cooler weather on its way, why is that so many lawn care pros recommend a late fall fertilization? Well, there is a lot that fertilizer can do to save you time and energy next spring when the ground warms back up and the grass begins to green.

There are many benefits of fertilizer, some of which include:

  • Lawn blade and foliage growth
  • Root growth
  • Cell function
  • Absorption of nutrients

All of these things are what keeps your lawn looking lush and without fertilizer, it is likely that your grass will not be radiating health. One of the biggest problems that many homeowners make when preparing their lawn for the winter is neglecting to feed the grass before the cold sets in. With a nutrient dense lawn before the cold snap, your grass will be able to handle the cooler temperatures (maybe even the snow!) and then thrive in the spring and summer.

So, this year as we enter the fall season and Topeka starts cooling off, do not forget to fertilize. If you are unsure of which type of fertilizer your lawn needs, when to do it, how to apply it, or if you simply don’t have the time and energy, then the team at Schendel Lawn & Landscape can help!
