Late Summer Lawn Projects to Consider

It’s hard to believe August is already here- it feels as if summer just started! It might surprise some people, but Aubin still has customers stopping by our hardware store in NH looking for seasonal lawn supplies. There is still so much to do before the end of the season! If you’ve been wondering what is left on your late summer chores list- here are some lawn projects you should consider over the next few weeks!

Aeration and overseeding
Late summer or early fall are often the best times to aerate and overseed your yard, especially for those looking for a thick turf in the following spring season. Cool evenings and nights can help prevent disease from potentially spreading, warm days allow for the seed to germinate and grow, and the early fall season can also bring additional rain for moisture.

Fertilizing and mulching
Similar to seeing, fertilizer and mulch should be utilized to help protect your gardens and grass. Fertilizer can provide much of the nutrients that can be missing from those hot and dry summer days while mulch protects your other plans from the sun. Both methods will support your yards sustainability as you transition into the fall season.

Pruning and maintaining
Pruning can be a tricky decision to make for some trees and plants depending on what you are trying to accomplish. If you are looking to manipulate (slow) the growth or correct your tree, the summer months can be an ideal time to prune. Summer pruning can also help prevent the spread of disease and encourage flowering. It’s important to learn about the specific plants and trees you would like to prune to learn if late summer pruning is best.
