Preparing Your Yard for Winter

Believe it or now, Autumn, not Spring, is one of the most important times to focus on your lawn care.  Lawns need special attention as the seasons change to keep them in good shape for the cooler months ahead.


MSN Real Estate offers some important tips on how to maintain and care for your lawn including:

Stop fertilizing after October 1 (This is the standard for Southern states)

Don't forget to water! Lawns still need to be watered about every 14-20 days.

Now is not the time to prune! Pruning encourages growth which is not what you want before the winter months.
