Can you believe November will be here Sunday? What has felt like the year that would never end, will soon be coming to a close. And as the winter months approach it is time to prepare your yard and garden. Below are some tips from to help prepare your yard.

November Checklist

  • Compost―Cleaning up the garden will yield plenty of fallen leaves and plant debris for compost. In an out-of-the-way corner of the garden, mix green and dry materials with a shovelful of soil and an optional handful of fertilizer (any kind except a weed-and-feed product). Sprinkle with water weekly if there is no rain. You’ll have compost by spring, sooner if you turn the pile.
  • Lawns―Fertilize tall fescue and other cool-season lawns in the Middle and Upper South with a quality lawn fertilizer, such as 30-2-4 or 29-3-4, that contains timed-release nitrogen to prevent burn. It will continuously feed your lawn until time for a spring feeding.
  • By late fall, your Bermudagrass has entered its winter slumber. Apply a winter fertilizer to deliver one last dose of nutrients for the next few months.
