FALL LAWN RENOVATION

Fall Lawn Renovation

Set Mower Deck Low

Step 1 -  Mow the lawn to a height of 1½ to 2 inches.

  • Bagging your grass will help to remove excessive clippings.

Step 2 - Rake to remove heavy debris. Roughing the surface of the soil and giving special attention to bare spots.

  • For larger areas, verticutting will greatly improve your seed to soil contact, but not required for good fall seed germination. Soil should be moist, not wet, when verticutting. 

Use Golf Course Starter or Renovator Fertilizer

Step 3 - Apply Loveland Golf Course Starter™ (for smaller lawns up to 5,000 sq. ft.) at 6 to 10 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. or Loveland Renovator™ (for larger lawns up to 15,000 sq ft.) at 3 to 5lbs. per 1000 sq. ft.

  •  Healthy turf needs to be fed regularyly. In a low nutrition environment weeds prosper, in high nutrtition, grass will prosper. Turf grasses will recover from summer stress quickly using Golf Course Starter™ or Renovator to encourage root regeneration and bring rapid green-up.
  • Small amount of fast release nitgrogen immediately available to the plant while the rest is slow release to provide and extended feeding.

Use Broadcast Spreader to Apply Grass Pad Seed

Step 4 - Spread your premium Grass Pad seed with a rotary or a hand cranked spreader. Extra grass seed shoube be applied over bare spots.

Use Weed Free PrimeraFC for Grass Seed Top Dressing

Step 5 - Cover bare spots, apply a top dressing of sphagnum peat moss or PrimeraFC grass seed dressing, 1/4" deep. Topsoil or straw contains weed seeds and should not be used.

Step 6 - Water the seed bed lightly so the soils surface is moist. Continue watering lightly so the soil does not become hard or baked. 

Step 7 - When the seedling reach a height of 3½ inches, mow to a height of 3 inches using a sharp mower blade at a time when the grass is not wet. 

Boost Shot of Golf Course Starter or Renovator Fertilzer

Step 8 - Four weeks after, apply a second application of Loveland Golf Course Starter™ (for small lawns) at 6 to 10 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. or Loveland Renovator™ (for large lawns) at 3 to 5 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft.

  • Booster fertilizer for new grass plants. Vital step in recovering from summer drought, heat and disease. New and established grass plants sotre fuel reserves to help fight witner injury, disease and stimulate root growth.
  • High nitrogen with potassium formulation in early fall to encourage root builden, cold hardiness, disease resistance and wear tolerance. 
Use Snoman Winter Root Builder

Step 9 - Promote deep roots with an application of Loveland Snowman® to the entire lawn in late fall. (Oct/Nov)

  • Lower nitrogen with elevated phosphorous and potassium formulation specifically for late fall application on Omaha Lawns. 
  • Improve winter color and boost spring green-up without stimulating excessive shoot gowth, allowing grass plants to maintain energy reserves.
  • Timing is important, ideal application is near Thansgiving Day.
