Fall is officially here and that means that it’s time to get your lawn ready to face the colder months ahead. So get ready to trim back the trees and clear your landscape with these great lawn maintenance tips provided by the Colorado Nursery & Greenhouse Association.
As we round out the month of September, you should begin cutting back on watering your trees and shrubs. The lack of water will force the plants to become dormant as they prepare for the cold months. Undergo core-aeration on your lawn if possible, to allow the soil beneath to receive the proper amounts of minerals and air.
During October, the CNGA recommends that you add mulch to your trees and shrubs when as it is needed. When it comes to flowers and ornamental grasses, be sure to remove diseased plants and cut back perennials in undesirable areas of your lawn.
