While it may seem like summer has just began, you can bet that it will be autumn before we know it. The good news is, there’s still plenty of outdoor time left to be had during the autumn season, especially when it comes to entertaining. That’s right we’re talking about backyard barbecues and family and friend get-togethers.
Do you want to make sure that your lawn looks like perfection when all of your loved ones come over? Then it’s time to start prepping your lawn now. At Lawn Connection, we have the very best tips for making sure your lawn looks as good as it possibly can come fall. Continue reading below to find out what you need to do to make sure that you have the best lawn for entertaining in the coming season.
Make sure to rake
There’s something really cozy about having fallen leaves on the grass during the Autumn season. However, when the leaves first begin to fall, you’re not going to have that rich color that you so much look forward to all year long. This means that before you have friends and family come over, you need to ensure that you have raked up the limited number of leaves that have fallen at the end of summer. Leaving the leaves on your grass will only make for bald spots later in the season, which are never great for entertaining. We would suggest raking once a week when the leaves first begin to fall.
Trim the shrubs
There’s nothing that makes your yard look worse than a bunch of shrubs that are growing wild. This means that you should definitely be trimming shrubs even though the seasons are changing. You may think that your shrubs will stop growing since summer is almost over, this is not the case. Trim them before your guests come over so that your yard looks pristine.
Make sure to continue watering
It may be tempting to stop watering your lawn once the summer heat has subsided, but this is not the course of action you should take. Your lawn still needs just as much water as it was receiving during those hot summer months. Up until the first frost arrives, it’s important that your lawn remains hydrated so that it can recover come spring next year.
Don’t forget to mow
You are probably sick of mowing your grass, but unfortunately it’s not time to put away the mower just yet. Your lawn will continue to grow even though summer is over. So make sure that you’re keeping it trim as the seasons change. This will ensure that your lawn can live well through winter and into the seasons beyond.
Hire a professional lawn company
You may think that you can take care of your lawn throughout the seasons all by yourself and you very well may be able to. However, if you’re thinking of entertaining this fall, we would suggest hiring professionals who know exactly how to make your lawn look as amazing as it possibly can. That’s where we come in. Lawn Connection has a team of professional lawn care experts who know how to take care of your lawn so that when your neighbors, family, and friends come over for fall entertaining they will be sure to notice how incredible your lawn looks as well as how incredible of a host you are.
