Now is the perfect time for your lawn to accept the benefits of fertilizer so make sure you have a solid plan in place.
  • Remove all of the dead growth from your flower beds and other shrub areas. Leaving that may cause certain diseases. It may, also, be a good time for rototilling your garden beds and even lay on fresh layers of lime. If your soil is in need of lime, the autumn is the best time to do it so it will immediately provide its benefits come the spring.
  • Landscaping your shrubs and bushes for the winter will include covering them or building small slanted wooden roofs over them. Also, tending to that compost pile and putting it to work is an absolute must. Finally, don’t forget to bring in the garden hoses and turn off the valves. Doing so will help prevent pipe bursting over the winter.
