End of Summer Gardening Tips

Getting your garden ready for the fall and winter months may not be as exciting as getting it ready for the summer, but this time of year is as important as any. From weeding to maintaining, fall is not a time of year to get lax on your home gardening.

Here are a few quick tips to keep yours looking great and prepared for the winter weather.

Weed: Weeds can be more prevalent at the end of the summer than at the beginning or even the middle. It’s important to stay on top of your weeding even as the weather starts to cool.

Cleaning Up Some Space: Make sure that you’re taking care of browning plants after you’ve made your end-of-summer harvests. You want to make sure that you’re giving your garden enough space and making cleanup in the fall easier.

Take Some Pictures: You may think that you’re going to remember exactly where you planted everything when the winter is over, but odds are you’re probably not going to. Take some pictures of your garden before the fall so you can be ready to go come next year.

Maintain your Shrubs and Trees: The fall is the perfect time to prune back your perennials before the winter weather hits. There isn’t any reason to promote additional growth throughout the fall.
