Fall is one of the most magical times to be outside. Summer’s heat has come and gone. But just because the weather is cooler, it doesn’t mean your work is done.
Here is a simple to-do list for this fall. Cross off these tasks before winter to ensure your lawn and garden jump back into shape come spring.
1. Rake up the leaves, pine needles and debris.
2. Mow your lawn one last time. –Trim it short to prevent matting, disease and rodent damage.
3. Reseed lawn- Fall is the best time to aerate and reseed tired and stressed summer lawns. Generally, you will use three pounds of seed for every 1,000 square feet of lawn.
4. Turn mulch- “fluffing up” mulch gives garden beds a fresh look, allows water to reach plants’ roots more easily and reduces insects and diseases.
5. Hardscape care- Power wash your hardscape areas, Fall is also the best time to fill in cracks and apply a sealant to help prevent damage from freezing and thawing.
