31 Days {Day 3} Getting the Yard Ready for Fall

From here

Fall can be a great time to refresh your garden preparing it for the following spring. But don’t forget to add some interest to your gardens. Plants like garden mums are perfect to add a hit of colour to tired summer containers.

Now is also the best time for, if like me, you let the weeds get a little out of control in your beds. You are best to do it before they set seed and go crazy next spring. This is also a great time to remulch your beds.

Remember that a healthy, vigorous growing lawn makes it harder for weeds and moss to establish – another great reason to feed your lawns roots for winter. A good fertilizer for this would be a 6-3-20 blend.
