Its that time of year again. The weather is horrible and the leaves are falling, but spring is right around the corner. Time to get the leaves picked up, the perennials cut back and all around get the lawn back to square one. Getting a jump now will only save you more time and problems in the coming months.
Another piece of the puzzle is getting your fertilizer and weed control program back up and running. Doing a spring pre-emergent and post-emergent application will both help eliminate what is there now and keep more weeds from popping up. Also, a good shot of nitrogen will help bring that turf out of dormancy and get it back to green again.
