Fall Yard Care Tips

There are easy steps to follow this fall to ensure homeowners’ lawns will remain healthy through the winter season. One of the easiest tasks to follow is to continue watering and mowing until users notice that grass slows down in growth. Depending on the region, blades should be adjusted to 2 ½" to 3 ½" tall for cool-season grass and 1"-3" for warm-season areas.

In fact, Troy-Bilt’s Ask Troy skill can help determine when the best time is to mow by connecting to the user’s Google calendar, pulling in local weather data and considering personal mowing preferences to identify ideal cutting times.

Homeowners should also be consistent with cleaning up fallen leaves, as this is an important tip to prevent grass from suffocating. With weaker sunlight and cooler temperatures, it’s essential to clear away leaves as soon as possible so that grass can still access light and dry up excessive morning dew.
