3 ways to upgrade or maintain your lawn this fall
1. Lawn Renovations / New Lawn Installation
In Massachusetts, late summer or early fall is the best time of year to install a new lawn. Contrary to many people’s beliefs the fall is much better than the spring. The soil is still maintaining its warmth, while the air remains cool. The cooler air temperature provides better nutrient absorption and is less advantageous for weeds and other common ground diseases. Combating weed growth is a primary concern when redoing a lawn and is much easier with the cooler temperatures heading into the fall. Late summer or early fall gives the lawn plenty of time to mature and grow strong roots without having to deal with the infectious diseases more common in the warmer summer months.

What is aeration? Aeration is the process of removing plugs of soil in order to break up soil compaction, allowing oxygen and water to reach the roots. Aerating is arguably the most important thing you can do for your lawn’s health. Aerating has a series of benefits including:
- Increased Water absorption: This not only allows the water to absorb more water and thus grow healthier, but it also reduces the chances of water buildup and puddling in your yard
- Increased Oxygen intake: Enhances the ability to absorb nutrients and aids in an overall healthier development
- Improved root development: Stronger roots are the byproduct of the aeration as well as increased water and oxygen absorption. Stronger roots allow for thicker and healthier grass.
3. Irrigation Installation
Irrigation installs are able to be completed at any time of year when the ground is not frozen but doing so in the fall allows you to head into spring with a healthy irrigation system in place and ready to roll. In addition, the lawn repairs that inevitably come with the installation of an irrigation system will come at the best time of year for growth.
