Instead, leaves continue to fall throughout autumn in Collin County, TX and smother your turfgrass, leading to turfgrass diseases, thatch build-up, bare spots, increased critter activity, and turf death.

But did you know you now need to worry about fall lawn diseases developing on your Wylie, TX lawn?
For example, if you water your lawn the evening before a hard freeze, you risk your turfgrass to a lawn disease—especially if the soil is saturated due to rainfall and overwatering your yard.
At this time, weed seeds germinate and will begin to pop up above ground. We want to get the pre-emergent weed control down to form that barrier in the soil to stop grassy weeds from germinating.
At College Fund Landscaping, we provide a liquid aeration solution that loosens the soil without messy plugs littering your lawn. Texas lawns with warm season grasses don’t get traditional core aeration until springtime.
