A lot of people have stopped cutting the lawns and, as leaves begin to collect, it gives off that autumnal feel. However, raking up the leaves and giving the lawn a final trim will make your garden look smart; providing a welcome throw-back to luscious summer lawns.
It’s also a good time to feed the lawn, especially after the dry summer we’ve had. Putting in a good deal of autumn lawn food works well in reinforcing and supporting the grass’s roots, which will re-initiate early next spring. Also, if you keep down the weeds and trim the hedges this will keep up appearances and benefit you later on in autumn.
