September Lawn & Garden To-Do List


    • 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.


  1. I have been having trouble with my lawn. All summer the length of the grass I cut each week is down from about 4″ to now about 1″to2″s. Could it be the thatch? Please respond. Thank you, Jerry Bravin

  2. I have alot of moss in the lawn and I dont know what to do. Its nearly september and Im not sure if I should rake it out.

  3. I like your idea of bringing plants inside before the night ends. It is a good way to make them last! Any other suggestions for good plants for getting ready for the Christmas season?

  4. I just bought a 25 acre farm where about 6 acres are mowable, but the other acres are bushhog material and trees. One of my questions is about shrubs, should I wait to take them out and put in new ones? Also, can I spray some kind of week control or killer after bush hoging to try to help control the weeds, etc. for next year?
