Summer is coming to a close and autumn is on its way, so that means prepping your yard, plants, and the rest of your landscaping for colder temperatures. However, this can be tough when you’re not sure where to start. Here are three things that you can do to help clean up your landscaping before autumn makes its way to your neighborhood.
Get the excess water out of everything – When you’re prepping your lawn for fall, it’s important to drain the water from any hoses, empty potted planters, and other areas that could have collected water over the summer. This helps to prevent damage from freezing and mold from growing in those areas.
Power wash your furniture & deck – Did you know that grime that collects on your deck and lawn furniture during the summer can actually damage it when the next season rolls around? Outside of the aesthetic qualities of power washing your deck and lawn furniture, it also prevents it from rusting, growing mold, or becoming discolored before the colder months arrive.
Before it gets cold, give your yard a quick trim – Mowing the lawn when the weather is less than ideal outside can be a pain. However, it’s important to give your lawn a very good trimming to help let the soil aerate before it freezes. This helps to promote growth in your lawn, keeping it growing bright and green for the warmer months.
