Be the first in line for a fall clean-up
Get on your landscaper’s dance card as soon as you can. Your yard should be cleaned up, pruned, free of overgrowth from the warm weather, and with as few leaves on the lawn as possible. Lay new mulch if you need to. The dog days of summer have passed, but that doesn’t mean your lawn or landscaping should be forgotten about – be sure to keep up with its maintenance.
