Up here in north Georgia, we’ve had a few weeks of cooler weather. Winter is coming faster than we think and it’s about time to make sure your lawn is getting the care that it needs specifically for November! We’ve talked about getting your lawn ready for the fall, and now our lawn care experts came up with a quick checklist to go over this month!

November Lawn Tips

  • Continue leaf removal – Changing leaves are great to look at in the trees, but they cause trouble as soon as they fall. They can block light to your more sensitive plants and make them sick or even kill them if leaves are left on top. Take a few minutes to make sure leaves aren’t blocking entire plants so they can get enough sunlight.
  • Begin winterization of irrigation systemsYou won’t be using your irrigation systems much anymore this year and into the start of next. You don’t want water to freeze and break the PVC pipes it runs through. So take a look at this helpful guide to take care of your lawn irrigation.
  • Don’t forget about your flowers – Some flowers will still be blooming this time of year, and it’s important not to forget about flower maintenance. Deheading, fertilization, and weeding is still important this time  of year.
  • Plant spring flowering bulbs – While you’re in your garden, it’s also a great time to make room and plant spring-flowering bulbs. Daffodils and tulips are some of the most popular and they’re an easy way to keep color in your yard come early spring!

Touching on these four items will make your yard one of the best-looking yards for the month of November, and prepare you for the winter and spring. And don’t worry, there’s still time left to build your own fire pit to enjoy as the weather continues to get colder.
