As the weather starts to get cooler, it’s essential to prepare for your garden, lawn, and home for the change of seasons. Taking care of your yard will not only enhance the look of your property for the fall season, but it will also simplify spring maintenance after a cold winter. Continue reading for a fall preparation checklist for your garden, lawn, and home!
Planting New Bulbs
At the beginning of each season, it’s good practice to clean out the remains of old plants, dried stems, and other debris in your garden. By getting rid of dead plants, it helps to destroy insects and prevents the spread of disease during the spring. Once the old plants are removed, you can plant new bulbs for fall. Tulips, daffodils, and other bulbs are ideal for the fall season while the ground is cool but not yet frozen from winter temperatures.
In addition to planting new flowers in your garden, you should also take care of your grass and lawn. As we all know, the fall comes with the chore of raking leaves and clearing debris from your lawn. While leaf removal is not a fun activity, it is important to remove leaves regularly to allow your yard to breathe and remain healthy.
Once your lawn is looking healthy and colorful, have some fun by adding seasonal home decor. Decorate with pumpkins and Halloween supplies on your front porch, a large wreath on your front door, outdoor lights along your walkway, or all of the above! Fall decor focuses on the greenery of the season, and a few small decorations can make a significant impact on your home.
