Fall Lawn Care

October through December

Elite Plus

  • Fertilize every 8-10 weeks with an all-purpose fertilizer such as 21-7-14.
  • If needed, apply a pre-emergent for grassy weeds in the early fall.
  • If needed, apply a pre-emergent for Broadleaf weeds in the late fall.
  • Decrease irrigation gradually as the weather cools to save water and promote better turf health.

Hybrid Bermuda

  • Hybrid Bermuda will gradually go dormant as the weather cools.
  • If you choose to overseed with Ryegrass, October is the best month since the Hybrid Bermuda is slowing it’s growth rate yet the weather is warm enough for good Ryegrass seed germination.
  • Another option for winter green is spraying with turf colorant such as Endurant Turf Colorant or DST Turf Green, available at your local landscape supply center.
  • If needed, apply a pre-emergent for grassy weeds in the early fall.
  • If needed, apply a pre-emergent for Broadleaf weeds in the late fall.
