While your green thumb might be tired after a spring and summer of caring for plants, spending some time right now tending to your yard will make it so much easier to enjoy come springtime!
- Don’t pack up the mower — yet. It’s still a good idea to mow your grass until the first frost. It’ll keep growing anyway.
- Do some soil-testing. Your yard might need some amending, and if you do it now, your lawn will be prepared to thrive by spring.
- Toss some seed down. If you have some thinning areas in your lawn, it’s a good idea to rake those areas and put down some fresh seed. It will start growing up until frost, so keep it well-watered!
- Fertilize. To help your lawn have it’s best summer, make sure to fertilize in the fall. We recommend Bay State Fertilizer. Don’t want to do it yourself? We’re happy to come by and help.
- Out with the old. Anything that’s dead or dying, it’s time to rip out and add to your compost pile.
- Shop for mums! Come over to our garden center to stock up on mums and other cold-hearty vegetation that will continue adding color and life until winter.
