Fall

The best time to overseed a lawn or repair thin and bare areas is fall. The cool nights and mild, shorter days provide the ideal conditions for seed germination. Seed is better able to retain moisture in these conditions, and seedlings will thrive without the extreme heat that occurs in the summer months.


Compacted soil prevents grass from establishing a healthy root system and keeps nutrients and water from reaching the roots.

5 Curb Appeal Tips for Fall

Clean Up the Yard: Keep falling leaves at bay with frequent raking and patch up any brown spots in the grass.
Plant Fall Flowers: As your summer plants start to fade, replace them with vibrant mums or other colorful flowers.
Clean Up the Exterior: Fall is a good time to pressure wash the exterior and clean the windows.
Clear Out All Gutters: Be sure to clear your gutters and downspouts of leaves and other debris, which will protect your home from water damage.
Add Outdoor Lighting: Use decorative lights to illuminate walkways, and install flood lights or lanterns to brighten up entrance areas.
