A healthy lawn all year long.
Wrap up the growing season with October’s list of natural lawn care practices.
Dates may vary by geographic location and turfgrass species. Choose practices based on your lawn’s specific needs.
Things to do in October:
- Mow, mulch, or compost fallen leaves
- Evaluate and record your lawn successes and failures over the past growing season.
- Use pesticides safely. Early October is the best time for postemergence broadleaf weed control, if weeds are actively growing and are more than you can tolerate.
