Lawn fertilizer service in the fall is the best way to guarantee a lush, healthy lawn and blooms in the spring. Lawns and landscapes need regular, healthy nutrition to maintain vigor, fight off diseases and discourage pests. Improving the root system and building adequate food reserves with lawn fertilizer service has significant and direct positive results on your plants and turf.
As the weather gets cooler and the days get shorter, plants are preparing for winter. Your lawn, trees and shrubs are altering the way they use available nutrients to build up food reserves for the cold winter ahead. Top growth slows down considerably in your plants this time of year. To prepare for new growth next spring, they are storing nutrients underground in their root systems rather than sending them to grass blades and leaves.
An expanded root system provides your plants with a strong foundation upon which to grow next spring. Lawns that receive lawn fertilizer service in the fall grow thicker, denser, and greener than lawns that are not. Blooming and flowering on trees and shrubs improves as well. Growing deep, healthy roots now will also help plants stand up to the stress of heat and drought in the summer.
Besides expanding the root system and helping to build food reserves, lawn fertilizer service in the fall improves overall plant health for better resistance to cool-weather fungus diseases. It may also provide better color in your turf and evergreens over the winter. Deep roots with plenty of stored water help to counteract the effects of cold winter winds which can dry out your lawn and evergreens, causing blades and needles to turn brown.
