During the Albuquerque fall season, a lawn naturally begins the process of becoming dormant for the remainder of the year. When this happens, it grows slower and this translates into mowing less over the last weeks of the growing season. Lower your lawn mower blades little by little until they it cuts your grass to a height of 1 ½ inches high. 

Schedule your Lawn mowing Frequency based on the growth rate of your Albuquerque lawn grass

Cut just 30% of your grass blade during the fall. Mow your Albuquerque lawn in the early evening to improve cutting and reduce heat blade shock. Fall mowing means you have to mow less frequently because your lawn is growing at a much lower rate.

Albuquerque Weed Removal

When fall rolls around in Albuquerque the fight you have waged all summer against weeds should be won. If there are any remaining weeds deal with them directly prior to the leaf drop and snow during the winter. Fall time means it is more difficult to locate weeds and eradicate them. Weeds can grow quickly and take over a lawn during the fall when your grass growth tails off.
