- The first half of September is prime lawn time! Take advantage of the season to ensure a strong, tough lawn in the future.
- Start with core aeration and dethatching, leaving about ½” of thatch to decompose.
- If you are planting seed, or if your lawn is thin or weedy, sow seed before mid-month. Let the new shoots grow through 2-3 mowings before applying regular-strength fertilizer or a “weed and feed” product.
- Fertilize with a 3-1-2 fertilizer to encourage top growth and winter hardiness.
