Fall is the best time to both fertilize your lawn and to get it ready for the harsh winter months. Instead of buying chemical or store-bought organic fertilizers, you can use what your lawn and trees already provide. Start by leaving the grass clippings on the lawn when it’s your final mow of the season; this will provide much-needed nitrogen. Use a shredder or your lawnmower to mulch fallen leaves, creating smaller pieces that you can leave on your lawn. This layer of mulched leaves will both feed your lawn and insulate it during the winter months.
