Fall Yard Cleanup for Your Rental

Fall Yard Cleanup for Your RentalAutumn has arrived which means the leaves are starting to fall from the trees and the temperatures are beginning to drop. Even though your rental might be temporary, taking care of your home and lawn is in your best interest as a renter. While your to-do list to manage and maintain your lawn might be extensive during this time of the year, it can be completed in no time with these easy steps. Furthermore, don’t forget to secure your belongings and your property with a customized Woodstock Renters Insurance policy.

Feed the lawn.

Think of fall fertilization as refueling and replenishing your lawn after a long, hot summer. Fall fertilization will help maintain your lawn’s root health and replenish nutrients that were expended in summer months. Fall feedings should be timed when plants are still absorbing nutrients, so don’t wait too long, says Weed Man. Now is the time to get this done before the frost sets in, so don’t wait!

Continue watering.

Healthy plants still need water on a regular basis. Even if it rains frequently, don’t let this fall by the wayside. Instead, water early during the day to prevent evaporation and make sure the roots are really nourished.

Keep the soil aerated.

Thatch build-up and foot traffic can compact soil, which cuts off oxygen and nutrient supply to the roots. Aeration loosens soil and literally airs out the earth. Soil plugs that are removed can be left on the lawn- they will eventually break down, providing nutrients to your lawn, says the article.

Reseed the lawn.

Early fall is the best time to do this so turf roots can be established before the cold of winter.

Pick up the leaves.

This may seem obvious but dark dingy areas are breeding grounds for bacteria and disease. Clean up the leaves to prevent this from occurring and to prevent the underlying soil and grass from suffocating.
