Check out these fall lawn-care tips [Video]

It’s not time to give up on lawn care just because the weather is getting colder and the leaves are falling from the trees. Actually, it’s quite the opposite. Your yard still needs some care before the winter, and here are a few tips for doing just that:

For starters, don’t stop mowing. Shorter grass will come back healthier in the spring, so mow as close to the first snowfall of the year as you can. You will also want to water and fertilize in the fall, so your grass can stay strong under mounds of snow.

Above all else, you need to take care of any fallen leaves. They’ll suffocate your yard and still be there in the spring as a rotten, damp mess. Rake a few times throughout the fall and one final time after all the leaves are down.

Thanks for watching, and check back soon for more home care tips.
