Fall is in full swing which is great news for Floridians! As the weather cools down, you can start making the most of your backyard for family fun. Whether it’s a late-night bonfire, a Halloween party, or a backyard camping night with the kids, there are several steps you need to take to prep your backyard for the autumn season.
Fertilize your lawn
Luckily for us in Florida, we don’t have to worry about raking leaves all autumn because, for the most part, Florida trees are evergreen. However, this means that our grasses and soils don’t get the natural fertilizer they need in order for plants to thrive in the winter. It’s essential to care for your grass after the long summer months, especially as the rainy months start to taper off.
Clean out the fire pit.
You may not have been able to enjoy late-night bonfires in the summer because it was still hot even late at night. However, as the temperatures start to drop, it’s time to clean out the fire pit and start enjoying warm cocoa and cider on the weekends. The kids will love roasting marshmallows, and you can get the most out of your backyard even in the fall and winter.
Clean and retouch your fencing
If you’re going to be spending more time outdoors, you want to think about retouching your fence around this time of year. The cooler weather means that spending an afternoon doing yard work won’t be as challenging as it is in August. Plus, as the rainy months taper off, you can plan days for repainting or staining your fence.
