I’m sort of a lawn care neophyte so I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do or when I’m supposed to do it. I base many of my decisions on the comercials I hear on the radio.

Recently I heard that it’s time to start fall preparations on my yard. I’ve heard that aeration, lime, and overseeding are all good to do. But I don’t know what to do when.

I live in the Charlotte, NC area and I think I have some sort of fescue grass, but I’m not sure.

Any advice would be most appreciative.

If you have good earthworm activity you don’t have to aerify…..don’t apply lime until you do a soil test,(simple soil test kits available at any garden center)….fertilize with a good balanced lawn food ,(many available) , and if have weeds use a “weed& feed” product. You don’t have to seed unless your lawn is thin or has bare spots. As the days get shorter, you can lower your cutting height a little at a time. By November you should be mowing an inch shorter than you are now.
