Posted on October 19, 2016

Though spring and summer lawn care in Weston, MA might seem simple, many often forget how important it is to prepare your yard for the winter! Cataldo Landscape and Masonry knows that in order for a thriving garden and lawn for the spring and summer, the preparation two seasons before can mean all the difference. For that, we’ve created a fall maintenance checklist for you.

Leaf and debris removal

A buildup of leaves and debris on your yard can cause a variety of problems with your grass, including mold and spotting in the spring season. Getting rid of these items before they cause a problem can save you a headache down the line.

Cut back perennials

On top of getting rid of your annuals, cutting back your perennials for the year puts all of the energy into the roots system, which makes for a better chance of survival for the spring. It also can help get rid of the snails and slugs that eat them.

Mulch your plantsLandscaping Design

We’ve talked about all of the advantages mulch gives your garden for the spring season in previous posts, but let us remind you of the most important parts. It insulations, it holds in moisture, and it helps prevent erosion.

Trim dead limbs

Snow, hail, winds, and other harsh outside elements are likely to impact your already dead tree or shrub limbs and could potentially become a danger to your home or loved ones. Cutting back these dead branches can protect your home and also prevent the spread of disease from tree to tree.
