Tips from Toby – The Fall Leaf & Their Benefits Tip
The beautiful Fall leaves are coming down and unfortunately covering up all that nice green grass. It only takes a couple of days of sun blockage by those leaves to begin to yellow or kill out the grass underneath. Don't reach for that back breaking rake and leave your hands with blisters! There are incredible nutrients in those leaves that can actually be advantageous to your lawn. But the rake is not the answer, it can tear up newly seeded lawns and fill bags and leave you aching. Mulching, chopping and blowing are the better answer and you won't be filling up the landfills. Check out Toby's tip to find out how you can use those leaves to your advantage and avoid the rake!

Tips from Toby – Fall Lawn Program
This is the time of year when many of us "overseed". From advertisements to big seed sales, it's what we're told to do. The truth is - most of us don't need to put down seed at all, we just need to feed the grass that is already there. Proper fertilization, watering and the cooler weather will do the rest. Grass thickens (tillers and rhyzomes) all on its own. We just need to give it a Fall boost to get there. In this week's tip we discuss whether you need to seed at all, how to properly apply seed and the equipment to get the job done right. Find out if you need to seed, or if simple fertilization will do the trick. It can save you a lot of time and money.
Tips from Toby Fall Seed Choices
In just a couple of weeks a lot of us will run out and buy some grass seed to overseed the lawn. Believe it or not - you could be doing more harm than good. Most of us don't need to do Fall overseeding. Fertilizing the healthy grass you already have will help the grass tiller and rhyzome so it will thicken and fill in those bare spots naturally. Over the next two weeks we'll help you decide if adding more seed to your lawn is necessary, how to properly apply grass seed and much more. Before you go out and spend a lot of money or time on Fall lawn care - check out this tip now!
