You might have read that title and said, “why worry about winter? We just got into October!” And we say, “you are not wrong.” But as the saying goes, “it is better to be safe than sorry.” And what are we trying to stay safe from? A property damaged by winter. With still plenty of time to worry about the colder months, now is the opportune moment to get your landscaping maintenance taken care of. Here is a simple fall landscaping checklist for your property.
Of course, you will need to make sure your garden is all cleaned. That means clearing out any dead flowers, plants, and leaves that are covering your garden beds. By getting rid of these, you will ensure that no pests and disease will develop. To go a step further, you should also think about possibly adding a layer of compost. This will allow your soil to be more enriched and prepare it for when you start growing again next season.
Now, let’s start moving up. We are talking trees now, more specifically trimming your trees and shrubs. If you notice any dead or damaged branches that are plaguing your trees and shrubs, now is the time to prune them. This method is an effective way to promote healthier trees while also keeping you and your property safe, as this will ensure no fallen branches from storms to come.
Lastly, fall is the perfect time to aerate your lawn before winter strikes. Aerating is the process of poking small holes in your soil that will allow air, water, and nutrients that get down to the deep roots. If you want to have a thriving lawn come spring, aerating is the thing for you.
