Fall Landscape Tips to Prepare Your Lawn and Garden

It's time to start thinking about preparing your lawn and garden for those cold winter months ahead and for the next growing season.

The days of summer are waning away and fall is just around the corner.

Everybody enjoys the brilliant fall colors of the leaves as the seasons change, but fallen leaves can create a big problem for your well manicured lawn. Leaves that are not removed or mulched before winter weather sets in can cause various fungal diseases that can cause extensive damage to a lawn.

Irrigation systems should be completely blown out with air to remove any water that might have accumulated in your pipes. Doing this helps to eliminate the chance that the freezing and thawing cycles of the winter will do damage to them. Also, fall is a good time to check your irrigation system for damage and needed repairs or to see if the system might need to be retrofitted.

Aeration and over seeding is key to achieving a healthy, full thick lawn. The fall is the ideal time to get this done, as temperature are cooler and the existing weeds in the lawn are dying, thereby, allowing the grass seed to germinate with less competition from the weeds. Clean up flower beds and gardens by removing old plants and replacing them with seasonal plants that will add color to your garden well into the fall months. Mums, Pansies, Ornamental Cabbage and Kale make great choices to achieve a colorful fall landscape.

Fall is also the time to think about adding landscape lighting to your home. Adding landscape lighting can not only added aesthetic beauty to your landscape, but it helps to improve safety as the days get shorter and it adds value to your home. Call Shackleford Landscaping for an onsite consultation and demonstration of a simple landscape lighting set up.
