The weather has been getting cooler over the past few weeks, and as such, your lawn will need a different level of care from what is needed in the warmer months of spring and summer. Now, we’re getting closer to Thanksgiving, and since we’re already trying to get our yards prepared for cooler weather, we may as well prepare it to be more festive as well. Here is what you can do to prepare your yard for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Get Your Yard Cleaned Up
Your yard should look nice at pretty much all times whenever possible. It’s just part of standard yard care that extends past the Thanksgiving holiday.
Part of keeping your yard clean includes raking up leaves. Since leaves will constantly be piling up around your yard, this will be a recurring chore. But it’s important to rake leaves so that your lawn stays as healthy as possible by getting the necessary sun and air it needs to thrive.
Getting rid of debris is another important aspect of yard upkeep. If you don’t stay on top of this part of maintenance, you could unintentionally invite various pests to turn your lawn into their home.
On top of that, there’s the mowing and watering you have to do. While temperatures do go down, that doesn’t mean your lawn won’t need water, and you still have to keep mowing. This will help your lawn come back to life more quickly once spring rolls around.
Getting Festive for Thanksgiving
Planting beautiful flowers is a great way to add some life to your yard. Mums and pansies are great choices since you can get them in colors that give off wonderful autumn vibes. They’re the types of flowers that scream “Thanksgiving.”
You can also decide to paint your front door, as well as your patio bench, if you have one. If you want to show everyone that you’re in the “Thanksgiving” mood, you should use colors such as maroon, brown, and gold. It’s these autumnal colors that will let everyone know how festive you are.
If you’re really feeling connected with the holiday, you could even decide to put some hay bales and corn stalks around your yard. These can provide you with surfaces on which to display any potted flowers you may have, as well as some pumpkins that you may have leftover from Halloween.
