Fall Clean-up

Yard landscaping for next year doesn’t begin next spring, rather, it begins this fall. Proper fall yard maintenance lowers the risk of plant diseases next spring. Raking the lawn ensures your grass won’t smother under a burden of fallen leaves. Of course, fall yard maintenance means winterizing: putting your plants to bed properly, sheltering them where possible from the rigors of winter.
