It’s the season of trees changing color, students returning to school, and pumpkin spice. That’s right: it’s fall! This means temperatures are starting to drop, and it’s time to start breaking out the sweaters. Something else this means is that it’s time to prepare your outdoor landscape for the upcoming weather. Fall brings different weather conditions to your landscape, so you’ll want to undergo a few maintenance procedures to prepare. Here are ways you can get your outdoor landscape ready for the fall season.
Remove Dead Foliage
Leaves are going to pile onto your outdoor landscape throughout the season, and dead foliage is going to become bothersome. For this reason, you should take time to remove whatever dead leaves, branches, and plants are lying around your property. This helps keep your outdoor landscape looking cleaner and more appealing to passersby.
Clean Your House’s Exterior
When you’re getting your garden and landscape ready for fall, you need to remember that your house should also be ready for the new season. By removing all of the leaves that fall onto your house, it will leave all aspects of your house, such as windows, roof, and siding, easier to see.
You don’t want people to see a dirty-looking house, so make sure you wash the exterior to keep it looking new. For areas such as guttering, cleaning, and decluttering can even improve your house’s functionality.
Mow Your Grass
To maintain your lawn, you should mow your grass to keep your yard looking neat and tidy. You should mow your grass at between 2 and 2.5 inches. If you raise the height of your mower during the growing season, you will get grass that is vigorous and thick.
Mulch Any Plants and Trees You Have
When you mulch your yard, you give it a completely new and refined look. By mulching your trees and plants during fall, you’ll keep them healthy and strong so that they will be ready for when spring arrives. To make sure that your garden doesn’t get infected with diseases, you should only get organic mulch that you find from garden and home stores. This will keep your plants safe and strong all season long.
