Here are 8 things to take care of.
1. Clean your gutters
Try using an old plastic spatula to get leaves adn debris out of your gutters! It won't scratch, plus you can cut it to fit the contours of your gutter.
2. While cleaning your gutters, make sure to snake out down spouts
They get clogged with leaves and debris and need a cleaning too. Try a plumber’s snake to do the job.
3. Keep watering
Watering in the fall helps your lawn recover from summer heat and gain strength for the winter ahead. If you fertilize, it's important that you water so the fertilizer dissolves and soaks into the ground.
4. Aerate your lawn
Aerating relieves the compacting of soil caused by foot traffic. Aerating allows air, nutrients and water to enter, which helps your roots to thrive!
5. Fertilize every fall
It’s recommended that we fertilize four times a year. But if you only want to do it one time a year, do it in the fall. Now sure which type is best? Ask you local garden center.
6. Blowout your sprinkler system
You can do it with your own compressor, but know that even the largest home compressor isn't powerful enough to blow out your entire system at once. Hiring a pro to do it for you is another great option. Shop around or ask your neighbors who they use.
7. Store lawn furniture
