As in spring, you want to maintain mowing your lawn once a week. Additionally, you will want to treat your lawn for insects and weeds. And you will want to be sure to fertilize your warm-season grasses as well.
In the fall you want to aerate again and overseed the lawn. You will also want to apply a good winter fertilizer to help your grass stay healthy through the winter. Finally, you will want to be sure you are raking frequently.
