Fall Garden Tips

Fall Garden Tips 

Prep now for a better yard in the spring.

Clear out – Trim and remove dead tree branches, trim shrubs, and rake leaves. Compost the leaves for soil you can use in the spring.

Mow Grass– One last mow leaves your yard with shorter grass that resists disease and leaf build-up.

Aerate – Core aerating your yard allows water and nutrients to reach roots in compressed soil, so it can keep strong through the winter.

Fertilize – Grass roots keep growing until 40 degrees, so now is a good time to invest in a healthy lawn for next year.

Plant Shrubs - Planting shrubs now gives them a head start on growing healthy roots. Mulching around new plantings will help new roots develop in colder months.
