It’s fall and it is so nice to not have to worry so much about the lawn. But wait, wasn’t there something that we are suppose to do before winter comes? Well, there is something you need to be doing. Fall is the time to prepare for Spring. This is the time that is the most important as far as fall lawn care. If you follow the simple steps listed, then you will have a healthy, lush lawn for the next year.
If you were to only fertilize your lawn once a year, which I don’t advise, but if you were, Fall would be the time to do it. Your lawn has been using up nutrients for growth for months now and is in need of replenishment. There are fertilizers that are made for the cooler weather, to prepare your lawn for a beautiful green lawn in the spring. October is the best month to do this due to the quick weather changes that occur in November.
Another thing that is very healthy for your lawn is aeration. This gives your lawn some breathing room to help the nutrients get further into the ground. This can be done with a machine that you can rent, or there are a number of lawn services that will come and do it for you. It is just another great fall lawn care step that should be done.
The last fall lawn care step we have is the clean up. Mowing will need to be done, but not as short as you have during the summer. Keep it a little longer and if you use a bagger mower, make sure you don’t leave clippings on the grass, and this is also very important with the leaves that are falling. Make sure your lawn is clean and free of lawn debris before the snow flies or the ground freezes. You can use a leaf blower to help clean the thousands of leaves that have fallen. If you have a mulching mower, then you have the advantage. Mulching the grass and leaf clippings actually puts nutrients back into your lawn which will only enhance the fertilizer treatment you have already applied.
Fall is the time that you are preparing your lawn for a nice winters rest and to come back strong and healthy in the Spring. Just to recap the fall lawn care steps, you need to first check for spots that need seeding. Use a high quality seed mixture, don’t skimp on this. Next you want to aerate and fertilize. Talk to your local garden shop as to the right mixture for your temperatures and size of lawn. Last of all, is to have your lawn clean of clippings and leaves. Then when the snow melts, you will be the first in the neighborhood with a lush green lawn
Container gardening is easy, no matter whether you reside in the city, country, or suburbs. For a festive fall look, use a variety of foliage with varying textures and colors. Place a few containers on a roof, a porch, a set of steps, a balcony or deck, or simply on a windowsill. For trailing and cascading plants, hanging baskets or pedestal-style containers are fantastic.
Even though summer is officially over and your summer plants and flowers are pretty much finished for the season, that doesn’t mean you have to place your containers into storage just yet. Now is the perfect time to create a bold, fresh look with fall flowers and plants. The type of container you choose is really up to you. The ones you already have will likely work just fine for your fall arrangements, but if you want to change things around a bit, consider using some unusual containers. Boots that have outlived their usefulness, your favorite shoes that just need to be recycled, watering cans, tins, wheelbarrows, buckets, an old wash tub, or an old grill are all unique ideas for planters.
Keep in mind that a container simply needs three drainage holes and needs to match the size and shape of the plant or flower it will contain, so even if you have to drill or poke the holes into a container, the choices are unlimited! Traditional style containers for gardening would be wire hanging baskets, wooden half baskets, wooden troughs, and terra cotta pots.
For fall plantings, add a mixture containing one part each of sand and peat moss or compost and four parts commercial soil to your existing leftover summer soil.
Hardy or semi-hardy evergreens, free-flowering plants, trailing or cascading plants, plants that produce bright colored berries in the fall, ivy, heather, or ornamental cabbage are all perfect for fall container gardening. Visit a reputable nursery and get their recommendations for fall plants and flowers that will thrive the most in your particular climate zone.
Many times once the cooler fall weather arrives, we are tempted to pack up the gardening tools for the season. We should take a cue from the leaves that boast bold colors of red, gold and yellow and plant some fall garden containers to extend the color outdoors for just a bit longer.
It is worth a visit to your local nursery or garden center to see what is available at the end of the summer season, sometimes at a reduced rate. Many annuals and perennials alike can easily make the transition from summer to fall.
Fall container gardening brings new color and texture to your outdoor landscape. Mums are always a fall favorite and come in deep purples, deep reds, bright yellows and golden hues. Another great choice for fall containers are a variety called ice pansies, which can actually withstand frost. Purchase zinnias, cosmos and marigolds that are already flowering and plant them in your favorite container to bring an extra burst of color to your outdoor patio, balcony or porch. Plant sweet potato vines and ornamental pepper plants in a container with flowers of complimenting colors and tall grasses in autumn hues for an eye-catching arrangement.
Fall is the perfect time to use containers with flowers, evergreens, or berry-producing plants to liven up your porch, window boxes, hanging planters or other containers placed in unexpected locations. Simply use your imagination and enjoy the results.
