Fall Tips: Your Landscaping Guide


Are you ready for Fall?

It can be a weird time of year for yard maintenance, aside from raking up the leaves, what needs to be done? Everything? Nothing? We've put together a guided checklist to make sure you're ready for all the elements!

  • Rake up all leaves and debris.

  • Remove dead annuals and mulch hardy perennials. Perennials top growth dies back, even though the root ball is hardy enough to survive even extreme temperatures, especially if it's covered with a layer of mulch. TIP: The best time to mulch is after the first big freeze! Just don't cover the centre of the plant this can lead to rot!

  • Trim dead and unruly branches out the trees and prune your hedges! This will help keep you safe during the stormy nights ahead!

  • Aerate your lawn! This will allow moisture and nutrients to get into the roots. See our Guide to a Greener Lawn for more tipes!

  • Fertilize your turf grass. When given enough nutrients, turf grasses have the ability to store food in the form of carbohydrates during the winter months. That means less work come spring!

  • Make sure you drain and disconnect your outdoor faucets before the freezing weather hits!

  • Clean and protect your deck! The time is now: Get that pressure washer out and make sure your deck is clean of mold and mildew, then weather proof it! You can get weatherproofing wood stain at your local supply shop!

  • And don't forget to till your vegetable garden!
