Autumn is a great time to give your garden a good clean and tidy ready for the colder winter months and it is also a good time to look over your equipment and get in any Briggs And Stratton Parts, like the ones you can see at https://diyengineparts.com/Brand/1/briggs-and-stratton-parts to repair any worn or damaged parts ready for when they will be needed again in Spring. Here are some tasks that you might want to consider completing in the Autumn months.

Pruning – now is a great time to cut back your shrubs and trees. This then allows the plant to conserve some of its energy ready for next Spring when it will burst into life once again. Pruning your shrubs and trees also allows you to change the direction of growth. If you want your plant to grow higher you can cut the side stems and equally if you want your plant to bush out you can trim the height of the stems and branches.

 

Lawn cutting – giving your grass one last cut before the frost sets in gives it the best chance to deal with the wet and cold weather over the winter period. If you leave your grass to grow too long over these months you can find that it comes back with thinned areas in the Spring.

Leaf clearing – pick up as many leaves as you can before they start to completely decompose. You can place these in a compost bin to then put over your ground in the Spring. Leaves that are left on your grass over the winter can damage the grass underneath and you can end up with bare patches in the Spring.
