Curb Appeal

What are your guests’ first impressions upon arriving at your home? Amp up your curb appeal by doing simple tasks such as mowing and reseeding the lawn, testing your soil, and picking up excess fall foliage. Most public libraries provide free soil tests. Be sure to call your local library in advance to see if they have them in stock. Fertilizing your lawn around November will also increase stronger root growth during colder temperatures.

Turning the Mulch

Avoid weeds and maintain the moisture in your soil by applying a layer of mulch in your garden. Doing this in the fall will help keep your garden alive and well just in time for winter. To save money on mulch, you can also create your own mulch by mowing over fallen leaves on your yard, piling the remains together, and spreading it around your garden.

Planting Perennials & Replacing Annuals

Fall is perfect for planting perennial bulbs because the temperature is just right and bulbs will be ready to bloom in the springtime. Swap out your withered summer annuals for fall annuals. This will boost your fall curb appeal points for any guests you host at your home this season. Promote plant health by wrapping shrubs with twine to help keep their shape and remove any dead or diseased branches to keep your plants healthy.
