Fall chore list is here!
It’s that time of year where you need to buckle down and take care of that pesky fall chose list. Don’t worry – If you get it done now, it will be easier and warmer than if you wait until winter hits. There are a few steps we recommend you take to make the burden of home upkeep a little lighter. Here are our top recommendations.
Rake Leaves – where you need to
Believe it or not, you do not need to rake every single leaf on your property. It’s important that you rake the leaves in the front yard to appease the city and neighbors. However, you can leave leafs that are in the garden to act as mulch and to protect the roots. Some plants can also benefit from to decomposing leaves in the spring so it’s best to leave a few leaves here and there.
Collect Your Tree’s Trash
This is a great time of year to collect all the debris that falls off the trees. This can include fruit, pinecones, pine needles, branches, etc. We also recommend that you trim your trees back so that the winter snow doesn’t cause them to pull down the power lines.
Protect your plant’s roots over the winter by covering all plant beds with 1-2 inches of mulch (or leaves mentioned above). Avoid weed fabric as this prevents moisture and nutrients from getting to the plants.
Pull Weeds THEN mow
Mow the yard one last time. Before mowing, pull all the weeds so you can get rid of the roots and seeds so they are less likely to come back next spring. It is best to throw away the weeds instead of using as a mulch substitute because you want the seeds gone! Mow your grass short to prevent diseases and collect the grass clippings. When you are done, winterize your mower.
Prune the Branches
The last item on your fall chore list is to prune your branches. Prune any branches that are diseased, damaged, or dead.
We hope you find these tips helpful and we hope this list helps you have an easier start to the spring next year. Gardening and landscaping can be a lot of work. We recommend breaking it down into smaller chunks and doing it one chore list at a time.
