Tips for Fall Yard Care

Cooler weather...leaves are falling…must be fall! Now’s a good time to do a little yard prep before the wet-coast rain sets in for good!

One Last Mow

The last couple mows of the year should be done with your mower set a little lower than normal. Somewhere around the 2" mark will leave the lawn neat and tidy for the winter. After you've completed the final cut of the year, it is a good time to give your mower a final tune-up so you’re ready for next spring. Change the engine oil, replace the air filter, tighten any loose bolts or wires, replace worn tires, and most importantly, sharpen the mower blade.

 

Roll up the hoses

Eventhough we may not get the deep freeze on the coast that rest of Canada suffers through, you should still disconnect all exterior garden hoses and make sure all outside taps are closed tight. Roll up the garden hoses and store them in a warm location to prevent cracking.

 

Fall yard clean up and pruning

Prune perennial shrubs and ornamental grasses, remove annual plants and flowers, rake and remove leaves or pine needles from your grass, and weed or edge shrub beds. Do it now and your yard will be ready for spring!

 

Gutter care

Make sure your gutters are debris free for the winter. They will have to handle a lot of rain over the next few months and it’s important that they are working properly.
