Landscaping Tips to Follow This Fall

Landscaping Tips to Follow This Fall

Fall Landscaping Tips Many homeowners associate landscaping with the spring. But the truth is that, if you don’t do landscaping in the fall, your lawn will not look it’s best once the spring comes back around. There are some things that you should do to your lawn every fall to ensure that it stays healthy and survives the rough winter months. Here are some tips that will help you take care of your lawn’s landscaping needs this fall.

Cut your lawn until it stops growing.

There are some people who winterize their lawnmowers as soon as the temperature drops below 70 during the fall. Nevertheless, even as it starts to cool off, you should continue to mow your lawn as long as it continues to grow.  Moreover, if you don’t cut it, your lawn won’t get the sun and water it needs in the fall and winter, and it will also likely get packed down by snow. This could prove to be disastrous for it and cause problems in the spring.

Reseed your lawn, if necessary.

Did the hot summer sun take a toll on your lawn? If so, it’s a good idea to get out there and aerate and seed any areas that aren’t looking so good in the fall. It’s also a good idea to have your soil tested before you take this step, just to make sure it’s healthy enough to encourage growth in your lawn. By doing this, you won’t have to worry about trying to rejuvenate your lawn in the spring.

Pack up landscaping equipment.

Once you have tended to your lawn and done other lawn cleanup, it’s time for you to pack all of your landscaping equipment away for the winter. You should unplug any hoses and put away tools that you won’t need to use for at least a few months. You should also consider cleaning out your garage or shed so that you’re able to find your landscaping equipment once you need to start using it again.
