If you happen to own a large lawn, maintaining it on a regular basis is a must, therefore, you have two options to address this lawn maintenance problem – you either make time and effort to schedule for a lawn maintenance day in your working calendar or give way to financially outsourcing a lawn care professional to do the job for you, entrusting the burdensome task of what it takes to spruce up your large, neat lawn.

Know that when it comes to lawn fertilization, the ripe season to do this is during the late summer and fall since at this time the grasses have recovered from the summer heat causing the lawn to experience drought and disease, such that if the lawn has been properly fertilized during these seasons, the grasses can begin to store up carbohydrate nutrients in their stems, rhizomes, and stolons, to help the grasses resist the winter cold temperatures and disease, as well as serving as energy for the roots to grow the following spring. If your lawn has been diagnosed as infested by a certain disease by a trained arborist, a treatment plan will be the next step upon identifying what the disease is and usually this takes a combination of the following processes: fertilization, herbicides, lawn aeration, frequent mowing, watering schedules.
