We got scorched up here, but the lawn has recovered nicely. I have some spots that I raked, seeded and added soil to, but I didn’t aerate so that the seed could get into the plugged out holes. Still, it’s looking good despite some spots.

Fall lawn care is far from over…early November and the lawn is thick, weed free, and thriving.

Temps nearly 15’ above average.

Still have another application of high nitrogen fertilizer to apply in about 3 weeks.

The Last Mow of the Season Height

For most of us, at some point during the late fall or winter, our lawns will enter a period of dormancy. A lot of questions come up at this time as homeowners wonder what’s the best way to prepare their lawn for this period of dormancy. The most popular questions usually relate to how high should your last mow of the season be and when should you stop mowing your lawn before winter. The answers are simple, yet there are some differences in cool season grass vs warm season grass and how you should close out the season.

After the heat of the summer, your cool season lawn will be loving life in late summer/early fall. As soil temps hit the low 70’s to mid 60’s you’ll actually notice your cool season lawn enter into a bit of a growth spurt. During this time I recommend maintaining your regular height of cut. But once soil temps decrease to a point where your lawn is starting to slow down and you don’t have to mow as often, it’s a good time to start the gradual decrease in mowing height. Gradual is the key word here.

I did my last mow on Saturday. It was 34*F. I was surprised at how much grass the mower collected when I dumped the bins. It’s been cool but day-time highs have been in the 40s until recently. Apparently, although the lawn has slowed down, it was still growing! I managed to grow new grass in just about all of the areas that needed it. I also put in a row of arborvitaes and some other shrubs and perennials in late September and early October. The lawn is ready to be put to bed for the season.
