Fall is right around the corner and many of those who live in Glen Laurel are looking to enjoy the cooler weather. The heat of summer will be subsiding soon and it will be time to focus on fall maintenance of your yard. The Town of Clayton is asking that residents of Glen Laurel no longer leave loose leaves along the curbs. The Town of Clayton will no longer be picking those up; you will now have to bag all grass clippings, pine straw, leaves, and trimmings.
When fall arrives, your Glen Laurel yard is preparing to go dormant for the winter. Fertilizing your yard is important during this time to provide it with an extra boost of nutrients that it will store and use during its dormancy. The grass may not be growing during the winter but the roots continue to grow underground throughout the winter and will rely on stored nutrients.
Fall is also the perfect time to aerate your yard. Aerating your lawn helps combat grass compaction that might have occurred during summer traffic, and allow your yard to increase the amount of nutrients and oxygen it takes in.
When the leaves start to fall, be sure to rake or blow the lawn at least once a week. Keeping your yard free of leaves not only keeps your yard looking better it is also healthier for your yard to be free of leaves. Don’t forget to bag the leaves and no longer leave them curbside.
