Continue Mowing the Grass
Although your grass doesn’t grow as quickly during the early and fall months, continue to mow to keep the lawn healthy. Higher grass attracts insects and pests seeking to find warmth. In addition, tall grass can also form bacteria and disease that affects the livelihood of the roots. Support healthy root structure by setting your mower height to three inches and continue mowing until the first Denver frost hits.
Rake the Leaves

Aerate and Overseed Early
Make the most of the cooler weather in the fall by aerating your lawn. During aeration, small holes are created to help bring oxygen to the roots of your grass. In addition, aeration helps redistribute any trapped nutrients in the roots and soil. Fortify the root strength and enhance the immune system of planting with a thorough aeration and overseeding session.
Pull the Weeds
Weeds can creep up on your lawn and landscaping at any time of the year, but fall is the best time to spray for weeds. A touch-up application helps minimize the risk of insects and bugs taking over your grass, trees, and shrubs, too.
