Basic Fall Maintenance Tasks for Your Garden


Basic Fall Maintenance Tasks for Your GardenAs the seasons change, so do your yard's needs. By completing some simple maintenance tasks in the fall, you can help to ensure that your landscaping looks beautiful in the spring. And if you simply don't have time or energy to do yardwork, then you can instead have a local landscaping company do the job. At South Valley Landscaping, we'll quickly and affordably take care of any maintenance tasks that your garden needs. We provide expertise in seasonal landscaping services in St. George, UT. Here are three important types of landscape maintenance to complete each fall.

Rake Up Leaves

This might seem like an obvious chore, but oftentimes homeowners don't actually realize just how important it is to thoroughly remove leaves from the lawn and garden. When leaves are left out for an extended period of time, there's a risk of them developing fungal issues that can then be passed onto nearby plants. Also, if your yard is covered with leaves, then your grass won't be getting the sunlight it needs for photosynthesis. And of course, a well-raked yard just plain looks better.

Compost/Mulch

It can be beneficial to add compost to emptied flower beds. Then in the spring you can work that compost into the soil to enrich it for the growing season. For shrubs and trees that will be sticking around through the winter months, it's a good idea to add mulch around their bases for warmth and moisture retention.

Protect Young Shrubs

Young shrubs are more susceptible to problems associated with harsh winter conditions. For one, you'll want to mulch around them. But you could also consider covering them with burlap for stretches when the weather is especially wintery. This will help them survive to an age where they'll be more hardy against the cold.
