Happy September! Although it is really hot here today, I’m already thinking of all the projects I can get done while I am sill mobile and my big belly isn’t getting in the way. One of which is cleaning up our backyard and getting it ready for fall. We planted lots of vegetables this year and had our patio makeover, so we have a few things to take care of before it’s winter.
Since I love to share helpful tips I’ve come up with this Fall Yard Clean Up Checklist, so none of us forget what to do to our beautiful yards outside when the weather changes and we are ready to snuggle inside for a few months. I won’t mind if you sip a Pumpkin Spiced Latte while you read this!
Here are 10 items for you to get done before it’s too cold.
Trim, and Prune all Plants
There are sure to be plants in the yard that will die once the summer is over and all dead leaves, branches, etc should be clipped off and composted or thrown away. I showed how to prune roses and fall is when all the leftover blooms and rose hips can be snipped off and discarded.
I’ve been using Rubbermaid Roughneck storage containers since they hold a lot and I don’t have to empty them too often. Plus the handles make it easy for me to carry them around the yard. We use these all over the house, specially to store things in the attic.
