Lawn and Garden Care for Fall

Though many grasses and plants go dormant in the cooler months, they still require some attention. Here are a few tips for getting your lawn, flower beds and landscape ready for the chill ahead.

Prepare the Lawn
Start by raking up leaves, which can wreak havoc on grass by trapping in moisture and blocking sunlight. Keep the mower handy and trim the lawn to a height of about 3 inches while the grass continues to grow. And if you haven’t aerated in a couple of years, now may be the time to do so. An aerator will loosen up soil and make it easier for water, nutrients and oxygen to reach the root system.

Clean Out Garden Beds
Start by clearing away dead or diseased foliage. Dig up and store delicate bulbs and tubers like tulips and dahlias, and divide any overgrown or waning perennials. Cut back plants that don’t add winter interest, and finish with a thorough weeding and a thick layer of mulch. Also be sure to bring delicate pots indoors for protection from the elements.

Take Care of Landscaping
Remove any dead or damaged limbs from trees and shrubs, but wait for winter for major pruning. Protect young trees from hungry critters by clearing weeds and wrapping their trunks with a protective collar. This is also a good time to plant or transplant; just be sure the sapling has time to establish before cooler temperatures hit.

Winter can be hard on your landscape, but a comprehensive cleanup is the best preparation for a gorgeous spring.
