With the leaves almost gone, you will not have to rake as much. November is the time when your lawn care will begin to slow down. You will not have as much to do and you will be able to relax and enjoy what you have created.
In November, you should:
Clean up any clutter on your lawn
Secure all lawn equipment for the wintertime in a shed or garage
If you still need to repair any lawn equipment, you should do so now
Check on smaller shrubs to see if they will need reinforcement
Dig up bulbs and other seeds to plant for the springtime
Lay down mulch if necessary
This is a short list, but the items on it are important. You should complete them because they will help during the rest of the year.
During December, you may not want to have to much do with your lawn. This is understandable. But you should go outside and check on plants that are small and may need your help to make it to the springtime.
In December, you should:
Assess all remaining plants, trees, shrubs, and flowers
Reinforce any plants that are falling over
Make sure that plants are safe against the snow
Check on tree branches
Take a good look at the grass
Since water and ice can cause cracking in your lawn structures, you should keep an eye on those as well. The winter may look peaceful, but in reality, your lawn still needs your care.
