#1: Water Correctly
Summer watering does not have to mean you need to drain your well or rack up a huge water
bill. Overwatering is just as bad as underwatering, both can kill your plants.

As you clean up your garden beds, you should also be on the lookout for insect eggs, especially in early
spring. By getting rid of them early, you stop them from feasting on your flowers and plants later. Be
sure to look on the underside of leaves, the top layer of soil, and other areas in your planting beds.

Now let’s talk about pruning. For the most part pruning should be done in the Fall. This is the time that the majority of shrubs and trees are ending their growth period and entering into dormancy. There are, however, a few varieties and situations where pruning should wait until the Spring. Radical non-selective pruning, such as cutting back a shrub to the ground or significantly cutting back a hedge, should wait until the Spring. This kind of pruning can stimulate new growth which may freeze in the cold months ahead.

Property maintenance goes a long way, and removing dead leaves offers many benefits. The most important benefit is that it will help your grass grow. A thick layer of fallen leaves can deprive grass of sunlight, which gets in the way of the growth of some cool-season grasses, such as Kentucky bluegrass, which are revitalized in the fall. Cool-season lawn grasses are most active in moderately cool fall weather when they must “make hay” to strengthen their root systems.
Here are a few more benefits of removing leaves:

Did you know that Fall is a great time for Landscape maintenance and installation? While Spring is the season that most people think about landscaping, Fall is often an even better time for updating your yards.
Depending on whether you are pruning, planting, renovating your lawn or possibly adding irrigation there are many reasons why Fall is a prime season for landscaping projects. One of the benefits is the increased moisture and cooler temps. This weather is beneficial as it helps new plants to become established and provides a good growing environment. You may also think about drainage and irrigation as the increased rain will reveal any problem areas.
