Fall lawn care tips

HASTINGS, Neb. - (KSNB) It's not quite time to completely slow down when it comes to caring for your lawn, even though the autumn months have arrived. In fact, Adams County Extension agent Ron Seymour says there is plenty to do.

"You have to think about next year now," said Seymour. "The things we do in the fall makes a huge difference on how your lawn looks next year."

Seymour recommends that you keep mowing grass at about 2-1/2 to three inches, as well as water about an inch-and-a-half each week. He also says this is a good time to aerate the lawn, as well as overseeding bare areas and apply weed control aimed at broad leaf weeds.
