With colder weather moving into the area, your grass won’t grow nearly as quickly as it was during the summer months.
When your grass stops growing it means it’s time to mow your lawn one final time. Here are some tips to guide you:
· When temperatures dip below 50°F during the daylight hours, it typically means that grass will stop growing
· The best grass height going into winter is between 2 and 2.5 inches
· Even if it’s the last cut of the year, don’t remove more than one-third of the grass height in one mow
· If necessary, spread out several cuts over a week or two to reach your desired height
Also, fall is one of the best times to feed and fertilize your lawn, so make sure you do this before it gets too cold. The food you supply your lawn this fall will help it come back stronger than ever when the spring season arrives.
With these tips, you know exactly how to treat your lawn during the final couple months of fall. Even if it takes a bit of extra work, you’ll be glad that you did it when warmer temperatures move into the area in 2020.
