• Continue mowing: Continue mowing the turf until it stops growing.

• Continue watering: You don’t need to water as often as you did during the hot summer months, but you need to continue watering the turf when it is needed.

• Replace damaged turf: Replace damaged turf that has no chance of recovering.
