10 Tips for Fall Yards

by Kim Toscano

  1. Take advantage of the cool weather to establish new trees and shrubs in the landscape this autumn.
  2. Turn fallen leaves and grass clippings into garden gold through composting – your plants will thank you!
  3. Tackle fall leaves with WORX TRIVAC 3-in-1 blower-vacuum-mulcher. Composting has never been so easy.
  4. Fall is the best time to establish cool-season lawns. Sow fescue, ryegrass and bluegrass seeds now for a vibrant lawn.
  5. Dormant grasses and perennials provide food and shelter for winter wildlife – wait to cut plants back in spring.
  6. Add color to the off-season with cool-season annuals like pansies, ornamental kale and cabbage, snapdragons and violas.
  7. Add power to your fall clean-up with the lightweight WORX AIR 20V MaxLithium™ TURBINE Blower
  8. Just like hand washing, removing diseased plant material from the landscape reduces future plant problems.
  9. Plants need water in winter too. Irrigate trees and shrubs regularly during fall and winter to prevent root damage.
  10. Did you plant a new tree this year? Protect young bark from winter sunscald with a plastic tree guard or paper wrap.
