Proper lawn care for autumn
With these tips for caring for and watering your lawn in autumn, it is well-prepared for the upcoming winter months.
The grass stops growing when the soil temperature is around nine degrees. Until then, you should mow your lawn regularly, cutting the grass no less than two inches. This minimum cutting length is important for protecting the soil, because only in this way can the root area be protected and frost penetrate less easily.
Only mow dry lawns. Especially in autumn, the lawn is often dewy into the morning hours and bear this in mind when programming your robotic lawnmower.
Lawn remnants should be hacked out because air and light are extremely important for the soil. Remove existing thatch and scarify your lawn. When scarifying, always make sure that you do not damage any roots.
The autumn fertilization is particularly important! Potassium is the ideal autumn fertilizer because it strengthens the plant cells, making them more resilient and frost-resistant.
