This is the perfect time of year to plant new grass seed or lay sod and prepare your existing lawn to get a great start in spring. In fall, often our lawns look their best due to cooler evenings, regular rainfall, heavy morning dew and shorter days. These conditions typically persist into the beginning of November. These conditions also mean that planting new grass or sod will get a fantastic start. Any lawn care improvements you make in the fall are going to pay off come spring. Many lawn care experts believe that fall improvements reap more immediate rewards than spring improvements because of the ideal growing conditions in fall.
