Fall Lawn Care Tips for Fescue Lawns

Fall is the most beautiful time of year in North Carolina, but for homeowners with fescue, they may be wondering why their lawn doesn’t match the beauty of the changing leaves.

The truth is that summer in North Carolina can be hard on fescue lawns. The good news is that fall is the ideal time for fescue overseeding! More than just sprinkling grass seed, overseeding fescue is a multi-step process that ensures your lawn recovers after a hot summer.

Barefoot & Associates is proud to offer this service to customers on a first-come, first-served basis. Keep reading to learn more and to schedule your overseeding appointment.

Renovating a Fescue Lawn in the Fall

Fall is the best time for renovating fescue lawns and the best time to heavily fertilize.

To get your fescue lawn back in tip-top shape, start with a soil test. This tells us what minerals are present in your soil and which minerals are lacking so we can best treat your lawn.

When it comes to renovating your lawn for fall, we recommend core aeration with lime and starter fertilizer, at a minimum. This combination of services allows the lime, fertilizer, and seed to penetrate your lawn through the holes created by aerating.

In addition to overseeding from Barefoot & Associates, there are a few things you can do to keep your lawn healthy this fall!

  • Regularly rake up or mulch leaves so your lawn can get the sunlight and air it needs
  • Mow your lawn 1-2 inches shorter than you mow it the rest of the year
  • Keep watering your lawn, even as the temperatures fall
  • Keep up with your lawn care treatments to ensure your lawn gets consistent care throughout the year
  • Put your patio furniture away for the winter to keep it in good shape
