Success in establishing a
lawn comes easier in the fall
of the year As days get
shorter and the soil becomes
cooler, annual grasses and
weeds, including crabgrass,
slow down in growth. In con
trast, perennial grasses, such
as the fescues and bluegrasses,
can be stimulated to rpore
vigorous root grqwth in prep
aration for the rigors of the
If conditions are favorable,
desirable grasses can be en
couraged toform new shoots
from the roots or at the base
of the plant stems. This re
sults in a thicker, more close
ly knit turf which is highly
desirable if you want to have
a beautiful lawn.
Other favorable fall factors
are the cool nights and heavy
dews which form at this sea
son of the year. While dew
will not take the place of a
soaking rain. It does help be
cause the leaves can absorb
the moisture directly .
On established lawns, keep
the lawnmower going as long
as growth of the turf justifies.
Do not mow too closely - one
and one-half to two inches is
about right for most lawns.
Remove leaves from the
lawn as they fall and work
them into your compost pile.
I have a neighbor who rakes
and piles leaves on his front
walk. He then shreds them
with his rotary mower and
carries them to his compost
pile. This is a good idea as it
hastens decomposition of the

September or October in the
lower Piedmont and Coastal
Plain is the time for this. Use
about 35 pounds of a com
plete fertilizer, such as 8-8-8,
for each 1,000 square feet of
lawn area. Measure your
needs and apply, evenly, over
the entire lawn.
If you gave you lawn a
generous application of a
complete fertilizer in March,
you may need only a top
dressing of nitrogen in the
fall. Choose your source and
use according to instructions,
as some forms are more
potent than others.
For lawiis to be seeded in
the fall, be sure that you
prepare an adequate seed bed
to hasten germination of the
seed and promote rapid
growth. Have your soil tested
