From the changing colored leaves to the cooler temperatures, fall is the perfect season to take advantage of all that the season offers with entertaining and enjoying your home. Now that the fall season is upon us, don’t think that all your work is done! This season still requires regular lawn, landscaping, and curb appeal maintenance to keep your home looking good throughout the winter and into next spring.
Keep up on lawn care
Just because your fall lawn isn’t growing at the same rapid growth as the summer months, your lawn still needs upkeep such as cutting, raking, and fertilizing. Look to Above and Beyond Complete Grounds Maintenance, an Omaha landscaping company, for help. A fall lawn that is fertilized on a fall seasonal routine will help from getting damaged during the colder winter months ahead.
Keep Yard Tools Clean
Every fall your yard and gardening tools get put away in your shed and are forgotten about until the spring. Before you store for the cooler months, ensure they are all working, cleaned off from dirt and debris and are stored correctly. Don’t let soil, moisture, or other debris make your tools unusable in the upcoming seasons.
Plant spring bulbs
Now is the best time to start thinking about colorful flowers sprouting in the spring. You will love how your fall planting now will lead to a gorgeous spring garden. Ensure you follow grower’s directions and plant them low enough into the ground to prevent freezing of your bulbs.
Use color for eye appeal
While you may think fall means that your outdoor home will lack color, think otherwise. Consider a wreath on the door, adding a few pumpkins, or pots of seasonal flowers, they will make your home look fresh and inviting. For a beautiful Omaha landscaping we suggest using mums. They come in a variety of beautiful colors.
Hardscape areas are just as important as soft landscaping
Landscaping can be broken into 2 categories – soft and hard. Soft landscaping is live and has texture and can be planted. While hardscaping refers to sidewalks, driveways, rocks, and pavers placed around your home for safety, function and beauty. Above and Beyond suggests keeping driveways clean by power washing throughout the fall months and into the winter.
