With the end of summer right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about cooler temperatures and Fall. HomeAdvisor.com offers the following tips for cleaning up your yard so that it is ready for the new Fall season.

Fall Lawn Care Tips

  • Rake Leaves: It is important that you rake or mulch your leaves so they don’t kill the grass underneath them that you worked hard to have beautiful during the summer.
  • Fertilize Your Lawn: Putting fertilizer on your lawn now can make a big difference with how your yard will look next summer.
  • Aerate Your Lawn: Aeration helps fertilizer, water and air to get into your soil, all helping to keep a lawn healthy even during winter months.
  • Winterize Your Sprinklers: If there is water left in your sprinkler system, it could cause your pipes to crack or freeze and thus ruin your sprinkler system. It could cost over $1,000 to replace the system should that happen.
  • Clean Your Gutters: After the leaves begin to fall, be sure to check they haven’t blocked your gutters. Blocked gutters will hold water, and the weight could pull down your gutter system or even parts of your roof.
