Fall Fertilization Tips & Tricks

It’s time to fertilize now that fall has arrived. Why would you fertilize your grass in the autumn? Fertilizer application will strengthen the roots of your plants and grass by using it in the fall, providing them a solid foundation on which to grow the following spring.

The formula for fertilizer, which we represent using three digits and is frequently 5-10-5, is the first thing to comprehend. The first number stands for nitrogen, which encourages the growth of grass blades and foliage; the second number is phosphorus, which aids in root development; and the third number is potassium, which encourages cell function and the uptake of trace elements.

September is the month

September is the ideal month to fertilize your lawn in the fall. The grass may emerge from a drought-induced slumber as it recovers from a long, hot summer, so you should fertilize your lawn with nitrogen to promote blade growth. It will grow once more if you use fertilizer with the formula 20-8-8. Always adhere to the manufacturer’s advised application rate. Some people tackle weeds and insects now, but we believe fertilizer should be applied instead of anything else unless there are symptoms or a history of issues. 

Even though this fall lawn fertilizer treatment is crucial, it is also crucial to apply around the end of October or the beginning of November. Apply a fertilizer using the 13-25-12 formula at that time. The phosphorus surge will drive root growth through November and maybe into early December. You can ensure that the grass will grow more quickly in the spring and become more resistant to disease and drought by encouraging root growth before winter sets in.

Don’t forget to aerate

In the fall your lawn needs aeration. This means punching holes in the thatch built up during the long hot summer. Some thatch benefits your lawn, giving roots insulation from both heat and cold, and helping retain moisture. But too much thatch will stifle your lawn’s growth, unless you can aerate. For small lawns, you can do it yourself. But large lawns need professional care in this department for the best results.

Compost for plants

It’s time to think about plants now that the lawn has had your care. Perennials are beginning to fade, but they will profit from 0-20-0 superphosphate fertilizer that is softly cultivated into the soil and spread around the plants in the prescribed amounts. You’ll have more flowers and stronger plants in the spring. 

Plant and Tree Fertilizer

A terrific time to fertilize trees and shrubs is in the fall. All trees and shrubs require fertilizer because most of them are in mulch beds where the decomposition of the mulch consumes nitrogen. Additionally, each fall we rake the leaves off of these beds, depriving the plants of the nutrients that normally would be released by decomposing leaves. Fertilizing in the fall is like getting ready for a long winter’s nap. You make yourself snug and cozy, and that is exactly what you need to do with your lawn and yard – make them snug and cozy with a thorough fertilization routine.
