Description: In the Piedmont, rejuvenating lawns is best done in fall. Knowing and using good growing practices all year also saves you time and money, and reduces environmental impact. Establishing a healthy stand of grass now with good planning and sensible management will minimize issues with weeds and diseases in the future - you can have a beautiful healthy lawn and also reduce the impact and expense of lawn chemicals.
