Top 5 Fall Gardening Tips from Peter Copses

1. Make sure falling leaves a removed regularly from newly aerated and overseeded fescue lawns. The new grass needs sunlight to properly mature.

2. Cut back perennials. Cut back stems to about 2 inches above ground level.

3. Apply per emergent to warm-season turfgrasses such as zoysia and Bermuda grass.

4. Selectively prune cross branches and sucker beaches out of your understory specimen trees. You can see the branch structure once the leaves have dropped which makes this the optimum time to make these cuts.

5. Pune straw and or mulch your garden once leaves stop falling and are cleaned up. This will insulate root systems of plants, reduce weeds and will look great.
