Autumn 2021

6 helpful tips for autumn clean up

Autumn is a beautiful time of year that brings changes in the leaves, and cooler weather. With all of that, comes time to clean up the garden.

    Rake and mulch the leaves

    Leaving thick layers of leaves on your lawn blocks the sun and air from reaching your grass, which could result in lawn disease. Rake them up, shred them, and use them as mulch for young trees, shrubs, and flower beds. You might even be able to skip the raking part if you use a lawnmower to mulch the leaves in your yard.
