Remember Fall Lawn Care

Posted: Tuesday, September 24th, 2013 at 6:21 am

Iowa State Extension and Outreach is reminding Iowans that fall lawn care is important. Lawn dormancy needs to be taken into account before mowing, fertilizing, weed control and aeration. It is recommended to wait until weather patterns change and it begins to rain before fertilizing a lawn; applications can be made anytime in September.
