Even though the season is coming to an end, there is still plenty to do for your landscape before the snow. Walk through your yard, do you see any big twigs, piles of leaves? Rake all leaves and remove all branches as they will cause dead spots on your lawn. Make sure all garden hoses are removed from water sources and put away. Leaving hoses outside year-round can cause moisture to freeze within the house and could weaken or crack the inner wall. Bring in any cement/concrete lawn ornaments to prevent cracks from freezing/thawing temps. Dump out any large fountains and cover them with fountain covers that can withstand heavy winds and snow. If the fountains are smaller, it’s better to just bring them inside. Dump out any flowerpots and if moveable, store them inside for the season. Heavier pots should have covers over them to protect from freezing/thawing/snow.
