Fall Cleanup Tips:

  • Bury Your Vegetable Garden – If you grew zucchini, tomatoes, and other vegetables over the summer, it’s time to pull and prune the dead and dying plants.  Bury the plants in a compost pile and if you notice any diseased or infested plants, be sure to place them in the trash.
  • Pull Weeds – Fall is the season for getting rid of weeds.  You want to get rid of weeds before they flower and send seeds into your garden that will sprout next spring.
  • Continue Watering – Continue to water your perennials and flowering shrugs through the winter months.  This will help them stay healthy through the cold winter!
  • Add Mulch – If you plan on adding a flower bed next spring, cover that area with mulch to help keep the soil healthy for next year!
  • Check Your Trees – Remove broken limbs and clean up the areas around your trees.  You’ll want to get rid of any fallen leaves so that the area around your tree stays healthy.
  • Rake Your Leaves – Leaves prevent sunlight and nutrients from getting to your lawn.  Cleanup and leaves to help keep your lawn in good condition.
