There are so many wonderful things that come along with the autumn season. Although you may be a fan of pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween decorations however, your lawn is not nearly as thrilled as the crisp weather begins to appear more and more. In order to maintain a yard that doesn’t look as though you gave up on it in August, there are a few things you can do.
- Rake Your Leaves
And we don’t just mean one time the entire season. Leaves tend to fall in stages and each time you notice that you can hardly see your grass below the fallen leaves, it’s time to rake. If leaves sit on the grass until the end of October or November and then are raked, the likelihood that your lawn will be dead is pretty high.
- Trim Your Shrubs
Your shrubs and bushes may have gotten a little out of hand this summer. Fall is a great time to clean up those wild limbs and prepare your shrubs for a long winter of sitting and looking pretty.
- Continue To Water Your Lawn
You lawn still needs hydration even though those hot summer months have subsided. Continue to water your lawn and any yard plants you may have regularly to prevent killing them before winter sets in.
