TEXAS/FLORIDA—During the Fall, even when temperatures begin to feel better, your law will still need water. Even when leaves start changing and your grass doesn’t grow as fast, watering it these months can help your lawn recover from summer stress and be ready for the upcoming winter. Keep in mind that during the winter there are some others steps that must be taken in order to protect pipes from bursting and reparation bills to go up.
Now that we are just changing seasons after a very warm and dry summer, you may set up your sprinkler and set a timer for 30 minutes. Check the soil for moisture depth by pushing a shovel into the lawn and tipping it forward to expose the soil. Your goal is to run the sprinkler until the water penetrates 3 to 4 inches into the soil. Moist soil will look darker.
Some experts recommend that you fertilize your lawn four times a year, some others will tell you there’s no need to use fertilizer more than twice a year because an organic fertilizer applied after core aeration will maximize plant and soil health. Like compost, organic fertilizers help feed beneficial organisms and replace valuable nutrients in your lawn. Testing your soil (every two or three years) is the best way to know when and how much fertilizer your grass needs. It will help you determine nutrient deficiencies and excesses, so you won’t pay for or apply fertilizer you don’t need. If you decide to do it once a year then you might want to do it during the Fall. Local garden centers can offer you good advice about the best fertilizer blend for your grass type during the fall, in your specific soil conditions and regulations if any.
The good thing about fertilizing during the fall is that it provides energy and nutrients necessary to keep your grass in best shape as it multiplies in cooler weather before the grass goes dormant in some cases when we live in Texas or Florida. The roots are also essential in storing nutrients that will eventually give your grass an initial growth spurt when the spring season arrives.
Landscaping and gardening helps you keep your home attractive during the holiday season, and desirable in the event the event you decide to sell your home.
A good homeowners insurance helps you keep your investment protected from damages and/or loss covered in your policy, mostly caused by accidents, theft, or weather events.
