Fescue Lawn and Landscape Fall Maintenance Tips

As we come into the fall season, and the leaves pile up, remember the fescue grass seed you just planted and pampered. It’s important to remove the debris that is accumulating to give your fescue lawn a better chance during the upcoming growing season. Fall leaves can block out sunlight and limit the growth of your fescue lawn.  Here are some things to get done during this time of year to help improve the health of your landscape and fescue lawn.

  1. Remove any leaves that may be covering up your fescue lawn and limiting sunlight.   
  2. Aerate your fescue lawn.  Aeration improves fescue roots by allowing more oxygen into the root zone.
  3. Clean out annual and perennial beds; apply new mulch/pine straw, fertilizer etc.  A balanced slow-release fertilizer such as 14-14-14 will allow for healthier plants when new growth begins in the spring.
  4. Survey trees for limbs to be removed, both dead and low hanging.  Dead and low hanging limbs can interfere with needed sunlight for your fescue lawn.
  5. For information on weed prevention and fertilization for your fescue lawn, consult the W.P. Law Inc. Fescue Fertilization Program.  Additional information on Insect Control and Disease Control for your fescue lawn can be found on our website as well.
  6. Start a compost pile from your yard debris. It makes for a great vegetable garden and a good place to introduce children or grandchildren to worms for the next fishing trip.
