WAXHAW, NC – As we roll into Fall and the cooler air is hitting our homes and gardens it is time to prepare for shorter days and longer nights. This typically is not a time when we look forward to seasons changing, but that makes it even more important to prepare. It takes preparation around the home and in the garden to adjust for the change in the seasons. It is also a good time to start to think about changes that you may want to make to the home during the cooler months and prepare ideas for the garden for next spring.
It is important to make sure to prepare your home and garden for the seasonal changes ahead. By completing the changes in the period of time between the change of the hot and cold seasons, your home and garden will both fare better when the drastic weather takes place. Once the weather changes, we often get heavy rain, frosts, and possible high winds. Preparing your home and garden during the fall season will make it easier on you, your garden, your home, and your stress levels. A proactive approach it always a better approach when it comes to these tasks.
Along with changes that you want to prepare for, there is also maintenance that should be completed as we transition out of the winter months. When preparing for fall, take a proactive approach to home and garden maintenance and plan. If changes for spring are in the air, then planning now is a great way to ensure that those plans come to fruition. Around town, several companies are ready to help.

Phil and Pam Carter, owners of Metrolina Mulch Premium Landscape Products recommend that if you are ready for a complete lawn makeover, the first thing to do is kill your existing grass with herbicide, and the time to begin the process is now. Phil says, “Although you have up until December to plant new grass seed, deaden the grass early enough to give your ground time to rid itself of the herbicide, keeping in mind those occasional hard freezes that can occur in December.” To ensure quick and healthy root system growth, most yards will need a fertile layer of topsoil and a sprinkling of wheat straw to retain moisture.
Pam added, “If you have a limited schedule due to work requirements or other time-consuming commitments, you may want to consider a reputable landscape contractor to assist you. We would be more than happy to provide referrals to anyone based on their specific needs”
