Kim Peveto of the Texas A & M AgriLife Extension Service in Orange has some tips for fall lawn care:
Caring for your lawn during the fall is as important as in the spring and summer. Here are a few things you can do to help your lawn survive the winter and recover vigorously in the spring.
Fertilization: Fall fertilizer should be high in nitrogen and potassium and lower in phosphorus. Fertilizing in the fall helps prolong fall color and promote an early spring recovery for your lawn.
Watering: Lawns go dormant during the winter months, so it is important to remember the grass needs water for survival. During the winter, if it doesn’t rain for several weeks, you need to water your lawn. Watering before a hard freeze is helpful in reducing freeze injury to the grass. It takes much colder air temperatures to lower the temperature of a moist soil than that of a dry soil.
