As the weather becomes cooler in Maryland, you are probably eager for the summer heat. To keep your residential landscape looking nice and minimize your workload next spring, ensure you prepare your lawn correctly for colder temperatures.

Make sure to regularly rake your lawn once the leaves begin to fall until the branches are completely bare. This is important for your lawn to receive the air and sunlight it needs to stay healthy. In addition, eliminate debris around the side of your residential landscape or beneath the deck. Even though cooler temperatures slow the growth rate of your turf, you should continue mowing and watering throughout the fall to help it return to life faster in the spring.
Prepare for Winter
Did you know that autumn is ideal for fertilizing your lawn? Atlantic Maintenance Group offers lawn fertilization services. It’s also perfect to plant trees and shrubs due to cooler air temperatures and warm soil. If you don’t already have mulch in your garden beds, lay some down before the first freeze. This protection layer insulates plant roots against the cold. Plus, short grass in the wintertime is less prone to disease, so water and cut your lawn one last time before the weather turns cold.
Get into the Thanksgiving Spirit
- Just because the weather is becoming cold doesn’t signify you must give up on beautiful blossoms. So, fill your residential landscape with planters full of lovely autumn orange, gold, and bronze hues.
- Freshen up your lawn by repainting your front door and wood patio bench with fall colors in mind.
- Corn stalks are a lovely fall décor for dressing up a tree in the yard. Make sure to surround the stalks with decorated hay bales, creating the perfect surfaces to set any potted flowers or pumpkins that didn’t get carved at Halloween.
