Here’s list of 15 things you should do for your yard this Fall! One big task is to keep debris in check because if you don’t take care of it now it will be there all winter. Till the vegetable garden - unless you don’t have one. Then you can skip this step. Trim branches, clean the gutters, and make sure everything is dry. Aerate and fertilize the lawn, but stick to an eco-friendly fertilizer if possible for the sake of the lakes. Take care of the plants, give the lawn a good last mow, and protect any plants that don’t do well in the cold. Make sure to protect your deck and fall is a great time to clean all your tools for storage. Lastly, don’t forget to have fun!
