We offer monthly seasonal landscape care for lawns, bedding, trees and shrubs, irrigation, and hardscape areas. During the last few weeks, we've reviewed many of the tasks required for fall lawn maintenance. Today, we are going to address how to take advantage of the autumn months to fix any bare or bald spots on your lawn. Clear the part of the lawn with bald or bare spots. The first step is to clean up the area of the lawn you want to fix. This means removing all the dead grass and ensuring you pull out all the roots for that dead grass. Use lime. Lime reduces the acidity of the soil.  This is a critical step.  Reducing the acidity of the soil is the only way to help the grass seed grow. It takes care of highly acidic soil where pet urine might have caused the bald spot to begin with. Spread the lime evenly over the bare spots. Add topsoil. Next, add at least a quarter inch of topsoil, which is rich in nutrients and has microorganisms that help the grass to grow. Apply grass seed to the bare area.  The bare spots now need grass seed. Spread the seed evenly over the topsoil. Cover it well to account for the fact that birds may try to get in there and snack on that seed. Add fertilizer and then water.  You can choose to fertilize your entire lawn, including the bare patches. Like we noted last week in terms of how to fertilize, you'll need to follow that up with a good watering to help the grass seed and fertilizer soak in. Work with a lawn care professional. And, if you feel more comfortable having a lawn care professional handle all these lawn care needs for the fall, then contact us now for a free estimate!

Fall is the Time to Re-seed the Lawn

Pugh's Earthworks The Best Commercial Maintenance Services in Memphis Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services to those in Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville, as well as Little Rock, Arkansas. Our clients include some of the premier office buildings, hotels, hospitals, churches and cemeteries in the cities we operate. In addition to the commercial customers we serve, we also provide landscape services for Home Owners Associations (HOAs), Condo Owners Associations (COA’s) and individual residential homeowners. Over the last few weeks, we've been sharing our best tips for fall lawn maintenance, including cleaning up debris and undertaking soil aeration. Now, it's time to look at re-seeding your lawn. We covered those other two steps because they are essentially the first two steps that you'll need to do before you can re-seed your lawn. That's because grass seed requires direct contact with the soil in order to germinate properly. The same goes for the process of aerating the soil. You are giving the seeds somewhere in the soil where they can get in and put down roots. Once you complete those steps, the next step is to spread the seed.  Opt for a high-quality seed or seed mixture that works for your type of lawn.  For small lawns, spread the seed by hand, but use a mechanical spreader when you need to cover a much larger lawn. Remember that more is not better so don't overdo the re-seeding. You don't want too many new shoots of grass competing for that little bit of light and water. Next, you'll want to add fertilizer on your lawn. After that, you'll need to water everything to encourage seed germination. Throughout the fall, you will want to continue mowing your lawn until the grass goes dormant for the winter. You'll also need to continue cleaning up those fallen leaves and collect all debris from your lawn.   And, if you need more help with fall lawn maintenance, be sure to contact us to learn more about how we can take care of all your commercial lawn and landscape need in the fall and every season.

Fall is Around the Corner So It’s Time to Start Sweeping Up Leaves and Debris

Pugh's Earthworks The Best Commercial Maintenance Services in Memphis Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services to those in Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville, as well as Little Rock, Arkansas. Our clients include some of the premier office buildings, hotels, hospitals, churches and cemeteries in the cities we operate. In addition to the commercial customers we serve, we also provide landscape services for Home Owners Associations (HOAs), Condo Owners Associations (COA’s) and individual residential homeowners. Fall is nearly officially here. However, you may have noticed in the last couple weeks that more leaves are on your commercial lawn and landscaped areas. There may be debris from the recent storms as well. Although the leaves will continue to fall over a prolonged period, it's important to stay on top of them and other debris like small branches and other organic matter. That's because if the leaves and debris are left to pile up, the organic matter can start to mold and cause problems for the lawn, including killing the grass and creating bald patches. There are many ways to keep your commercial lawn and landscape clean. First, you can use rakes to remove the leaves and natural debris on a weekly basis. Second, you can opt to use a leaf blower, which can speed the work of clearing it from your lawn. Once you have gathered all your leaves and debris, you can use a leaf shredder and collect the debris into lawn bags for disposal. Alternatively, you may also want to save all the leaves and debris and turn it into mulch or put it in a composting container. You'll need to continue this throughout September, October, and November until winter arrives. This can be a lot of work, especially when you are trying to run a business. That's why you can leave the work to our commercial lawn and landscaping maintenance team to get it done for you. That way, your landscape looks pristine and you can focus on your business and customers!
