With the warm summer days wrapping up and the fall season on the horizon, it’s the best time to do lawn maintenance to prepare your grass for the upcoming cold winter months. While hiring a professional might be alluring to some, others desire to get their hands dirty by cultivating the quality of their yard. If you decide to take lawn preservation into your own hands this fall, here are some things to keep in mind.  


Dethatching your lawn is a useful approach to removing debris, dead grass, and other elements that have built up on the surface of your grass. This method gives the healthy, organic soil a chance to breathe and revitalize. 

Dethatching is an in-depth, detailed lawn raking. To dethatch your lawn, you’ll want a specialized dethatching rake to dig into the dirt. While raking, you will notice the thatch separate from the soil. This is ideal! Keep raking until all the thatch and soil are loosened and separated. Remove the buildup and enjoy the healthy yard you’ve cultivated.  


Aeration is the process of digging holes in a lawn to relieve the compaction of the soil and increase the flow of water, air, and nutrients to underground roots. Since aerated grassroots dig deep into the soil, it’s important to shovel far down to ensure they’re all removed. 

If you’re not ready to invest in your own aeration machine, many lawn and garden stores rent them for a fair price. Most rental shops also provide general directions to operate the machine. While aerating is similar to mowing, it’s important to go over the lawn multiple times to ensure well-worn areas are covered. 


Routinely seeding your yard is important for maintenance. Laying the seeds can be done over existing grass, without tearing anything up, for the preservation of your lawn. Seeding will work to fill in bare spots, improve density, and intensify the lively color of your yard. 

These maintenance techniques will preserve the quality of your outdoor space so you can enjoy it for many years to come.
