The summer’s almost over. The days are slowly getting shorter as we pass the solstice and September will be here before we know it, bringing drying leaves and chills. What should you do to your garden? Believe it or not, it’s not good to just leave your plants to the elements and largely ignore them. Here are 5 tips to make sure your garden is ready for fall, winter, and the following spring!
1. Weeding and Pruning
Are we there yet? Finally, after all that maintenance all you have left to do is clean up. Remove pet waste from the yard, hose down your tools, edge the lawn to keep grass away from winter salt, and put all that gear away. For a bonus tip, don’t stress raking the leaves if you use your mower to mulch them before storage! The finely cut leaves will do wonders for your lawn.
