Tips from Toby – Early Fall Dormancy
The extremely dry October along with the warmer temperatures have left some pretty brown lawns all over town. It's easy to mistake this for heat stress, but our lawns are so dry they are actually going dormant early. Lawns usually don't start going dormant until early December, so letting them go to sleep now means they won't thicken, gain strength and absorb nutrients throughout the Winter leaving sparse and unhealthy lawns next Spring. We need water and Toby tells you what to do and how to get those lawns to wake up and be healthy again.

Here it is - your Fall fertilization schedule in an easy to follow video tip. The most important steps you can take for your lawn all year (and should not be skipped) is ready and it's time to fertilize our lawns.

Just about every week Toby gets a call on his radio show, "Toby, my lawn looks horrible, what should I do?" Toby always asks how many times they fertilize per year and the answer is usually, "once or twice", or "I can't remember".
If you want to have a great lawn next Spring and Summer, you need to give your grass the nutrition it needs now to beef up all winter and be ready for the lawn stress of the Summer heat.

Before you buy that bag of seed or give thought to running out and throwing down a bunch of grass seed - watch this tip! A lot of us put down seed in the Fall that don't need it. Too much seed in your lawn is not a good thing and can lead to a very unhealthy turf. Fall Fertilization is the key to beefing back and bringing back your lawn. Watch our tip and find out if you should seed or not to seed.
Every university study and all of Toby's decades of research (plus trial and error) demonstrates that fertilizing your lawn at least three times in the Fall will result in a much, much better lawn all year. This is not the time to give up on your lawn but beef it up! Check out the tip now to find out what fertilizer mix to use, how to apply correctly and when to apply.
