The summer is in full swing and fall is just around the corner. With a new season comes some necessary care to your outdoor space before the cold temperatures set in. Are you ready? As you prepare, there are a few things to consider. Learn about how you can care for your lawn in preparation for fall, your landscaping to do list, and the benefits of brick paver installation in Castle Pines.
Caring for Lawn
As you get started your plans for fall, if you increased the height of your lawn mower, make sure you move it back for fall to keep grass blades short. This will be beneficial during the winter to keep grass from piling under snow. It is also the critical time to make plans to fertilize for fall. When fertilizing in late fall, you will help your lawn recover after the hard freeze in the winter. Make note to kick off your fertilization in September to encourage your grass to grow. In addition, treat your grass for weeds and unwanted insects. It is also beneficial to fertilize your lawn again in late October or early November. This will help to secure and strengthen your roots and will help them be strong in the spring.
Landscaping To Dos
While you are in the swing of fertilizing your grass, you will also need to fertilize any of your plants and flowers too. This will help them stay strong throughout the winter and help them quickly recover when spring arrives. Next, make sure you add mulching to your agenda. Fall is one of the best times of year to mulch to help plants get through a harsh winter. You will only need a couple inches around your trees and plants, and make sure to leave a small circumference around the base open. This is needed so the plants can breathe. If you have any plants or branches that are struggling, fall is also an idea time to remove them. For more tips, be sure to review fall landscaping tips from The Spruce.
