When Winter is approaching, it is the ideal time to start preparing for the cooler months. You might not be thinking about your lawn, but if you get started during mid/late Autumn; you won’t regret it. Having a great lawn in front of your property can make an outstanding impact on the appearance of your home or commercial premises.

Why should you be bothering with your lawn during Autumn? Is it really necessary to put effort into your lawn now? In fact, the answer is yes. If you are prepared to put a little effort in now, your lawns will thank you for it. If you’re thinking your lawns will be fine for the next few months because you will get some rain, think again. During the lead up until winter, the grass is preparing for the cold season in its own natural way by absorbing nutrients, moisture and energy.
