Mow Your Lawn to 2 to 2-1/2 inches tall to avoid winter lawn diseases and to enable your grass to store food for spring growth. A shorter lawn also is less hospitable to voles and meadow mice, which are the rodents that create all the runways under the snow.
Remove or recycle fallen leaves. Raking is a perennial fall chore. Make it easier by composting or grinding up leaves with your lawnmower and leaving the finely ground layer on your lawn. Grass clippings and ground leaves are good organic food for your lawn.
Keep grass clippings, leaves, and other organic debris off driveways, sidewalks, and streets. Decaying organic materials can end up in our surface water releasing soluble forms of phosphates and nitrates that cause water quality problems.
Keep watering your lawn and trees until the ground is cold and beginning to freeze.
Fall is also a great time to dethatch and/or aerate your lawn, which allows air, water, and nutrients to reach the roots of your grass.
Apply a final fertilizer treatment in late fall and spot treat broadleaf weeds such as dandelions, clover, and creeping charlie. Be sure to complete treatments before temperatures fall below 50 degrees
Now is the right time for aeration and over-seeding.

Adam’s FREE 7 Point Lawn Analysis
Adam’s experienced lawn professional will evaluate your turf and provide recommendations for a healthy, lush lawn. Adam’s inspection and lawn analysis includes:
Determining the type of grass -- While most lawns in our area are a blend of grasses, knowing the type of grass that makes up most of your lawn is important for determining the best watering, mowing, and fertilizing practices.
Reviewing the color – the color shows the general health of your lawn. For example, if the blades are green down near the dirt but the tips are yellow and brown, your lawn may have fungus.
Measuring turf density – assessing the density informs you on the relative condition of your lawn and whether or not improvements are needed.
Identifying shade and other problem areas – so you know how to properly manage them
Inspecting for disease and pests – and recommending best treatments if anything is found.
Identifying weeds – knowing the weeds in your yard enables you to determine the best treatment protocol, including the “right” time for treatments
Measuring the thatch – too much thatch increases the possibility of pests and disease; and limits the effect of water and fertilizer
Adam’s will review the findings with you and recommend a tailored lawn care strategy for mowing, watering and feeding your lawn.
