My Everchanging Garden

Gardening That Grows With Me

Fall Lawn Care

The weather has cooled considerably, in fact we had our first frost this morning. The day was lovely for working so I spent the day putting fall fertilizer on the lawn and reseeding bare spots. I also spread seed heavily in areas that have dense clover. While I don’t mind some clover, too much is not a good thing!

I am still cutting my lawn at summer height (as tall as my mower will go). While the weather is cool enough to lower the height, it is dry. Plus I think leaving your lawn long in the fall helps combat those weeds that like to germinate in the cool weather.
