Shade can be great for lounging in during those hot summer days. But sometimes too much shade mixed with the wrong combination of ingredients can make for a patchy, brown lawn where grass struggles to grow. But with the right combination of ingredients, and a few alterations with your gardening routines, you can give your grass a fighting chance at growing strong and lush, even in those shady areas.

Are you noticing certain areas of your lawn that are sparse from grass but have patches of moss growing? Moss is a plant that can easily spread as the spores reach across damp, barren patches of your soil. That layer of moss can grow thick when conditions in the soil are optimal. But moss can be stubborn and resilient, even when you remove it. If you don’t address the underlying reasons that are causing it to grow instead of grass, it will keep coming back.

Interlocking stones are a great addition to any driveway or backyard. Aside from the aesthetic value, they can usually hold up very well against that harsh winter weather. With the spacing in between each stone, it allows the interlock to expand or contract without damaging any neighboring stones. And the best part is that if one or two do happen to get damaged, you just need to replace those individual stones.

If your goal is to have a plush, green, healthy lawn next spring, it’s time to stop thinking about it and start acting! The cool temperatures that come with autumn make it the best time to throw down that sod or seed to help give it a great healthy boost of growth come next spring. Cooler air means less burden placed on the grass and less evaporation, which will allow the roots to absorb moisture more easily.

So take advantage of the cooler weather now and help achieve that plush, thick lawn next year by following these steps.
