Water, Water, Water
We all know how wonderful the fall colours are – when they’re supposed to be there. In other words, make sure you are not neglecting the watering and feeding of your lawn and plants. Your greenery will soon be deprived of water, so watering throughout the fall will help nourish them throughout the winter, leaving you with a healthy-looking lawn next spring.
Weeding past the end of summer is important for the health of your lawn next spring. The benefit of weeding right up until the colder months is that it takes away those chances for your weeds to seed. This can greatly reduce the number of weeds on your lawn next spring. If it’s too cold for you to do, hire a landscaper to prep your lawn for the winter
Trimming any hedges or large bushes in your backyard garden during the fall is important to prevent any rodents from making base camp during the winter. To get ahead, hire a pro for bush trimming before the first snowfall.
Your home’s eavestroughs are designed to direct water away from your home. During the fall they can become clogged or damaged due to a buildup of debris. To prevent this from happening, hire a pro for regular maintenance throughout the fall, and be sure to have them cleaned and inspected one last time before winter.

The fall is a perfect time to re-do or install new concrete pathways on your property. Pathways can protect your lawn from people walking, and offer guidance and stability throughout your property. Plus, if well maintained, they can help to keep the interior of your house clean, especially during the muddy and slushy seasons. If you’re interested in installing a new pathway, get connected with a concrete contractor today.
In addition to your new concrete pathway, installing a concrete patio can be of great use throughout the winter months. With low maintenance and high durability, you can install a fireplace, outdoor kitchen, and seating in the area to entertain on colder nights.
