Normally at this time in September we are beginning our lawn aeration & over-seeding. Although the temperatures are forecasted to moderate we need more forecasted rain. So, we wait…. Mother Nature will let us know when the right time is to start and when we do we will be very busy playing catch up aerating and over-seeding as many lawns as we have on our schedule. Once seeded the lawns need to be watered and remain moist for several weeks. This allows the different varieties of grass seed to germinate and get started. Those newly aerated and over-seeded lawns will not get their grass cut for several weeks thereafter while the fragile seeds take root. The taller grass helps retain a bit more moisture as well.
Another by product of lower levels of rain is the tree leaves will begin dropping earlier than last year. We expect to start removing leaves at least ten days sooner than last year. The fall for us is normally as busy as the spring with lawn applications being applied, liquid weed control being applied, lawn aeration, over-seeding, time release fertilizer applied, lime applications, new landscapes being installed, landscapes being touched up, tree and bush pruning and shaping, fall flowers planted, mulching and leaf removal. In short, just about everything we do including of course our daily lawn cutting. Speaking of lawn cutting we are suspending lawn cutting for most lawns this week for lack of rain.
