Albuquerque Lawn Raking—Make it a Priority
Rake your Albuquerque lawn and make it free of leaves prior to winter snow season. Leaves fall and accumulate. Once they are on the ground they decompose, which pulls needed water away from your lawn grass. Leaves that are decomposing are a magnet for insects which can wreak havoc on your lawn. Big mats of leaves left unattended will create lawn dead spots. Dead spots are a perfect location for weeds to germinate and become the dominate plant instead of your lawn grass.
Albuquerque Lawn Aerating
Albuquerque lawn soil becomes compacted naturally due to people walking on it and due to the laws of physics and nature. Once it becomes compacted the natural soil air pockets become flattened which prevents water and food sources from feeding your lawn grass plant roots. Lawn aeration should be done in the fall and the spring to prevent this problem from occurring and to enhance your lawns overall health and plant growth in the fall and the spring when your lawn needs it the most. Over time the soil in your lawn becomes compacted, reducing the air pockets that allow nutrients and water to reach the roots of your grass. To combat this, make sure your lawn is aerated annually. Fall is a great time to do this and gives your lawn the best chance to the receive the nutrients and water it needs to grow healthy all season long.
