The ideal prep work now will definitely save you time and energy when spring rolls around, and will certainly keep you and your family members secure in the yard year-round.

Fallen leaves and weeds are the perfect place for insects to settle down in for the cold weather. Clear out flower gardens to maintain the critters at bay. Pay special attention to rose beds, as their leafage can nurture illness over the cold weather.

2. Till the vegetable back yard garden.
After the final harvest-time, pull out old veggie plants, remove clutter, and definitely till the whole plot. If you fertilizer, right now is the period of time to add a overlay of fertilizer to help nourish your soil for growing next spring.

3. Trimming Rogue Branches.
Cut up any sizeable or out-of-place pine branches that may cause trouble at the time of the cold weather. You do not want any branches damaging and falling during the snowfall to come.

4. Clean out the gutter systems.
Not all fall up keep is in the outdoor. This is the ideal time to clear leave and debris and other clutter from rain gutters. Check for correct drainage, clear out any blockages with a small flower garden trowel, and rinse with a hose.

5. Dry the whole thing out.
Empty all water from hoses, water fountains, and trickle irrigation systems, and store them in a dry place. Water left standing over the cold weather may damage your machine.

6. Aerate.
Break up soil to keep water from pooling and make sure that nutrition will reach the roots over the cold weather. A organic garden fork will do the job for little backyards, but bigger backyards may necessitate a walk-behind aerator, which in turn should be readily available to rent for a fair cost.

Send your yard into the winter season with the nutrients it needs to make it through the long, cold weather sleep. Add a fall lawn fertilizer with high phosphorous content to promote root development and enjoy a lush, green lawn come spring.

Don’t let fallen leaves get the best of your place; if left un monitored they can suffocate the grass. Rake them up, shred them, and use them as compost for young timbers, shrubs, and perennial beds. You might even be able to skip the raking part if you use a lawn mower to mulch the leave and debris in your yard.

9. Cut back trees and shrubs.
Trim down any lifeless branches and cut back overrun trees and bushes. Assuming that you have blooming perennials like clematis or roses, promptly is the time to cut back them and train the branches.

10. Give it one remaining cut.
Set your lawnmower to a low setting and give the yard a close buzz before the winter months sets in. This really helps the soil dry out more quickly in the spring, which leads to a lusher lawn.
