The end of summer does not mean that you should not maintain your yard, in fact, it is time to ramp things up a little bit and take better care of your yard. With winter approaching fast, you have to take really good care of your yard.
A lot of homeowners do not understand the need to take care of their yard and how this affects the overall feel of the property and even the pricing too if you are looking to sell anytime soon.
How to maintain your yard can be a bit complicated if you do not have the right information. This article contains four essential tips that will help you maintain your yard, especially during fall.
Let us get into it:
Saying goodbye to summer is not an easy task, that is why you have to run introductory checks on your yard to ensure that you are on safe grounds. If you are a flower enthusiast, by now, the summer annuals are long dead and you will have to think of cool-weathered flowers you can plant in your yard. Part of the preparatory checks includes checking out the plants that will fit right in your yard.
Mowing and keeping things running
Another way to maintain your yard during fall is to mow your grass. The grass remains dormant in winter and in autumn starts to grow vigorously. It is time to get your mower out and keep things fluid and at the right height. Overgrown grass reduces the aesthetic appeal of your yard, you have to watch things and be sure to put it right. Mowing is not the only thing you have to do, you will also have to trim your trees and shrubs. Not something major like you do in early summer though. What you are doing is pegging back the trees and keeping their growth in check.
Raking the leaves
With all of those mowing and pruning, it is sure that the entire yard will be crawling with leaves, dead shrub, and tree branches, you will have to rake it all up if you want to maintain your yard. Raking up leaves is not the ideal way to have fun but you must remove those fallen leaves from your yard as soon as possible. If you do not and the first rain meets all the leaves in the yard, the cutouts will form a moss mat that might breed fungal diseases.
Patch it up
Every yard has that area where its all bald and bare – the desert amid an oasis. One of the very good ways to take care of your yard in the fall is to patch up these spots. You can easily fix it up by loosening the area’s soil a bit and then fertilizing the area. Water thoroughly and continue to water continuously for the next two weeks. Once you are done with that, seed the portion and watch it grow again!
