With fall officially here, many Pasadena residents are beginning to enjoy the changes that fall brings. From the cooler weather to the changing leaves, homeowners tend to enjoy the break in weather and the break in lawn care. However, fall doesn’t mean you should stop caring for your Pasadena lawn. In fact, fall lawn care for your Pasadena home is quite important.
So what can be considered fall lawn care?
The two main things that should be done for your Pasadena lawn this fall are mowing and raking.
While many Pasadena homeowners dread the thought of having to rake the leaves in their yard, raking is an essential component to fall lawn care. When leaves cover your lawn, the grass underneath is being kept from sunlight. Leaves can also trap moisture in-between the surface and your lawn, which can cause serious problems. Not only will your grass be unable to dry out, bacteria and viruses can begin to spread which can be problematic if you have pets or young children. If you are hoping to have a healthy lawn come spring, be sure to rake your leaves and allow your lawn to dry and receive enough sunlight.
Mowing your lawn is also an important component of fall lawn care for your Pasadena yard. Your grass is still growing, even if the flowers in your garden have begun to wilt. While your lawn will need mowing, it is important to lower your mower as growth begins to slow. This will help your lawn prepare for the colder winter seasons and not become brown and dead so quickly.
