The cooler weather season is the perfect time to show off the beauty of all things fall in your home’s landscaping. It can be tough preparing your yard for autumn, but the payoffs are great and staying active in your yard can feel very rewarding once your home is the standout on your block.
Get your home fall ready with these 6 landscaping projects!
1. Spread Mulch
Spreading mulch in your yard is a great way to add color! Not to mention, mulch can fend off weeds and lock in moisture to keep your plants healthier than ever as the cold weather arrives.
2. Pull Weeds
Protect your vegetation. Weeds are invasive pests that not only affect the look of your garden and lawn but can cause damage to your flowers.
3. Plant Flowers
Update your garden with a splash of fall colors! Replace your dead summer plants with bright mums or pansies or any other autumn flower. Fall is also a great time to plant trees and shrubs!
4. Throw Out Some Seed
Sections of your lawn may have been damaged due to summer heat. Combat the issue by over-seeding the damaged patch.
5. Keep on Mowing
Although your grass will grow slower in cooler temperature, you still shouldn’t neglect to mow. Remember, when cutting in cooler months, you don’t want to leave it too long or cut it too short. The ideal height is 2.5 to 3 inches in height.
6. Add a Little Fall Décor!
Add a simple wreath of fall florals to your front door, or go all out with an entire autumn themed look. Remember, pumpkins are the perfect fall staple!
