During the autumn months, there are some basic garden care tips that you need to keep in mind. These tips are designed to help you have the most beautiful garden and lawn possible. So grab your garden blower and let's begin the process. Just keep in mind to never walk on your grass if there is a frost on it.

The first thing you will want to do is remove dead plants from the garden. These are the plants that thrived in the warmer summer months and are now withered on the ground. By removing these plants the overall appearance of your yard will greatly improve. During the removal process, you may also choose to plant new flowers and vegetables in your garden. You should ensure these new additions are freeze resistant and plan on having a covering for them at night.

When you have the garden free from dead plants, you will then need to grab the garden blower and remove all the leaves. This will be something you should do on a weekly basis, as the trees will continue to lose their leaves for a few months. When they are done, you can then put the garden blower away for a few months.

Next, move your grass to remove the buildup that is beneath it. Carefully go in a straight pattern and don't worry about getting the lawn too short, right now you are preparing to do some seeding and fertilizing that will prove to be important down the road.

When this is done, take a few moments to use a lawn rake to clean up the area. Take your garden blower to it one more time just to ensure there was nothing left behind as well. Then starting from the edge of your lawn, then working backwards fertilize your lawn. As you do this process, be sure you have an even coating across the entire area. When you are done, make sure you do a full watering to ensure that the area remains moist. In about a week, you will want to reseed your entire lawn paying close attention to any bare or yellow patches that might turn up after you have done the fertilizing process.

After you have setup your entire yard and have prepared it for the cooler months, be sure that you follow the next piece of garden care advice. You will need to take your sprinkler system and wrap it well. Any watering that you might need to do in the winter months should be done by hand with a detachable hose. This will help you to prevent freezing and having a sprinkler system that can cause your problems next year.

Something to keep in mind during this entire process is some plants can't tolerate the cold well. If you are expecting a freeze at anytime, be sure that you cover weaker plants with a warm blanket or plant cover. This way, you keep them looking great for the next season.
