Feeling overwhelmed by the endless to-do list of outdoor fall maintenance and clean-up? Let the experts from Cleveland’s premier landscaping contractors help. The following cheat sheet from Precision Corporation will get you started on some basic fall landscaping and winterization.

1. Lawn

Mow the lawn one last time before things start to freeze up. Optimal height for winter is 2 to 3 inches. Rake leaves so they do not kill off your turf grass by trapping moisture or preventing air circulation.

2. Trees and Shrubs

Prune your trees and shrubs in fall for healthier growth in the spring. This may also improve your view and allow more sunlight into the house. If you have any diseased or older trees that are looking iffy, don’t take chances with falling limbs or falling trees. Have them trimmed or removed by a professional tree service before winter winds and snow loads take them down for you.

3. Hardscaping

Wash concrete or paver stone driveways, sidewalks, stairs, and patios. Remove leaves and other debris from hardscape surfaces so they do not cause discoloration.
