Although summer typically lasts until the end of September, depending on your exact location-like, for instance, in Colorado- the first frost can come even in August. The first frost usually stops the cycle for the annual plants and causes perennials to go dormant for the cold season.
One excellent tip would be to keep on watering and mowing your lawn after the end of summer, too. Although during the fall grass tends to grow slower, it still receives all the nutrients and still needs care and attention. If you keep on mowing your lawn you can thus ensure the fact that it continues to get enough sunlight and water.
Another good idea is to complete all the bare spots and control weeds. Fertilization goes a long way, too. In fact, fall can be the perfect season for increasing your chances to have a beautiful, lush lawn in spring.
Pruning, mulching and transplanting your perennial plants is another good way to improve the general state of your landscape. Because every perennial has different requirements, you need to get informed about the exact measures you should take either by asking around, or by searching online, and so on. Raking up dead leaves is yet another important task.
