Lawn grubs are the larvae of beetles that eat the roots of your grass, and they are typically most active in late summer. These pests can kill sections of your lawn, and as they grow into beetles and begin creating more grubs, you could eventually end up with a completely dead lawn.
Fall outdoor prep isn’t only for lawn maintenance; it’s also a time to seal up your home from unwanted guests. Now is the time to guard against pests, as they try to seek to stay warm inside your house during the cold winter months. Failing to maintain the outside perimeter of your home properly can create an open invitation for spiders, ants, cockroaches, mice, and rats.
The best way to ensure a beautiful and healthy lawn and landscaping come springtime is to take the proper steps in preparing for winter before the harsh conditions arrive. Without this, a lawn that hasn’t been “put to bed” for the winter will be evident in the spring. However, a little work now will make for a lush and gorgeous lawn when spring does return.
