As the days grow shorter and the air becomes crisp, autumn signals the transition from the vibrant growth of summer to the dormancy of winter. However, this change in seasons doesn’t mean neglecting your lawn. In fact, autumn is a crucial time for lawn care, setting the foundation for a healthy and resilient turf come spring. At Budget Turf Brisbane, we’re here to provide you with expert tips to keep your lawn in top shape as fall sets in.


Autumn Lawn Care Tips:

1. Mowing: Adjust your mowing schedule to accommodate the slower growth rate of your lawn in autumn. Aim to maintain a slightly taller grass height to provide insulation and protection for the roots as temperatures begin to drop.

2. Watering: While Brisbane’s autumn months typically bring cooler temperatures and increased rainfall, occasional watering may still be necessary, especially during dry spells. Water deeply and infrequently to encourage deep root growth and drought resistance.

3. Fertilising: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early to mid-autumn to provide essential nutrients for your lawn as it prepares for dormancy. This will help strengthen the roots and promote vigorous growth come spring.

4. Weed Control: Take advantage of the cooler temperatures to tackle weeds before they have a chance to spread. Apply a selective herbicide to target problem areas and prevent weed growth throughout the fall and winter months.

5. Aeration: Schedule core aeration for your lawn in early to mid-autumn to alleviate soil compaction and improve air and water penetration to the roots. This will promote healthy root growth and overall turf health.



As autumn arrives, it’s crucial to adjust your lawn care routine to ensure the continued health and vitality of your turf. By following these autumn lawn care tips from Budget Turf Brisbane, you can prepare your lawn for the cooler months ahead while setting the stage for lush growth come spring.
