Fall is the perfect time to spend some quality time in your yard, getting your landscape ready for winter and prepping it for the upcoming spring season.

Here are some tips to keep your yard healthy as the season’s change.

Mulching your leaves is much better than raking and bagging because the shredded leaves decompose and naturally feed your lawn.

Aerating allows for water, oxygen, and other nutrients to reach your soil. It also prevents your soil from becoming compacted and covered with thatch.

Keep your grass healthy by cutting it between 2-3 inches until the first hard frost.

If your region is not getting at least an inch of rain a week, you will want to continue watering through the fall. Install watering solutions, such as smart controllers on irrigation systems, to help conserve water.
