4 ways to get your garden ready for autumn

Content Author

The seasons are about to turn – but that’s no reason to kiss your garden goodbye. In fact, transforming your outdoor space into something that can be enjoyed all year round is easier than you think.


Here are some steps to consider when prepping your garden for the changing seasons.  


1. Tidy up 


Yes, really. Just do it. Remove any dead or diseased plants, spent annuals, and weeds. Rake up fallen leaves and debris. This prevents the buildup of diseases and pests over the winter.  


Trim back any dead or overgrown branches from trees, shrubs, and perennials. Autumn is the perfect time for light pruning to shape plants and encourage healthy growth in the spring. 


2. Harvest and plant  


If you have any remaining vegetables or fruits in the garden, harvest them before the first frost. You can also consider preserving or storing produce for later use. 


Autumn is the optimal moment for plant spring-flowering bulbs like tulips, daffodils, and crocuses. Plant them at the recommended depth to ensure they have a strong start in the spring. 


3. Protect your plants 


If you have potted plants, consider moving them indoors before the first frost or providing them with adequate protection if they’re staying outside. Be sure to check their specific requirements. 


If you have tender plants that won’t survive the winter outdoors, consider digging them up and potting them to bring inside. Alternatively, cover them with burlap or other protective materials. 


4. Keep up maintenance 


Continue adding organic materials to your compost pile. Fall leaves, kitchen scraps, and plant debris can all contribute to creating nutrient-rich compost for next year’s garden. 


Keep mowing your lawn until it stops growing. A slightly shorter final cut can help prevent disease problems. You can also aerate and overseed your lawn to promote healthy growth. 


Once you’ve sorted your greenery, it’s time to pick some key pieces to help you enjoy the garden even when the temperature drops.
