Fall Garden Prep

September 4, 2020


We know, we know–we’re still a few weeks out from the end of summer, why are we mentioning it? Well, for the obvious reasons of course–it’s never too early to start preparing your Southpoint home to be fall ready. Whether you live in one of our single-family lane homes, traditional townhomes or lifestyle homes, these tips will help you get your landscaping and garden ready for the next season.

Garden beds and flowerpots

We know it’s tempting to let plants wither under mother nature’s cold kiss, but do you really want to be dealing with dried and wilted plants that will turn to dust when you’re handling them in the spring? It’s much easier to turn out garden beds and clear out pots while the temperature is beginning to cool off. Not only that, but wilted plants look unsightly during the colder months–no one needs a reminder that the province is hibernating for the season.

Patio furniture

It’s good to have a plan about where you’re going to store patio furniture, how you’re going to store it before the temperature drops or before the fluffy stuff falls from the sky and you’re dealing with the elements. We recommend investing in high-quality furniture covers that can withstand the weather or store your furniture indoors.


Bleh, yeah–we hear you. Trust us on this one, though–you don’t want to ignore this task. Ensure you clear any debris from your rain gutters so that you won’t experience any drainage issues once winter comes. This can be a costly mistake otherwise, trust us!

The final mow

Most people aren’t thinking about cutting the grass when the season is cooling down, but not only will this encourage regrowth come the warmer temperatures–it also encourages resilience to any disease once the ground thaws again. It’ll make it easier for you to seed (which you should do in the fall.)
