Fall is closing in on Northeast Georgia and it’s time to prepare your lawn for fall and winter.
This week fescue and starter fertilizer arrived at Pro Touch Landscapes. We also are excited that pansies will arrive to the store in just a couple weeks.
1. This is the best time of year to aerate your fescue because it is the time of year when fescue grows rapidly.
2. Before seeding make sure to aerate your lawn and apply starter fertilizer.
After completing the aeration process you should apply grass seed at a rate of 4 to 6 pounds per 1,000 s.f. Also, make sure to apply a good quality starter fertilizer within the 7 to 10 days of seeding.
Aeration is important because over time the clay and soil underneath your lawn will become hard. Aeration will help with the compaction and encourage new growth through the winter months.
We recommend that you apply a 18-24-12 fertilizer to fescue in our area. Our favorite starter fertilizer is in the store now and is $24.99 per bag.
3. Finally, in just a few weeks, pansies will arrive at Pro Touch. We will have flats and individual flowers available for your landscapes and container gardening.
Also, keep in mind that Pro Touch Landscapes is a full service landscape contractor. We can handle you aeration, fertilization and seeding needs; along with hardscapes, ponds, maintenance, design and installation.
