Do you love autumn? The mornings are crisp, the days are glorious, and the nights are getting colder. It’s one of the most beautiful times of the year, and you can actually feel the season changing. The air smells fresher and we tend to have more energy after the heat and humidity of summer pass.

There are also those beautiful red and golden leaves falling from deciduous trees – falling and making a mess in the back yard!

The grass is luscious and green again after summer drought – fervently springing up around your ears every time you look the other way!

It can be difficult to keep your autumn garden looking neat and tidy – but it doesn’t have to be!

Lucky for you, when things look dire in your yard, there’s Tamar Hire.

Autumn Garden Tasks

Autumn is a fantastic time to get out in the garden. Not only are there essential maintenance tasks that you have to undertake if your garden is going to look good and be at its best through winter, but the weather is perfect for being outside. It’s healthy too – gardening is a great way to get out of the house, dust off those cobwebs, get your blood pumping, and boost your mental and physical wellbeing – all without stepping foot off your property.

Some essential autumn outdoor tasks include:

  • Keep lawns mown
  • Rake, blow, or vacuum fallen leaves
  • Prune herbaceous perennials
  • Repot plants that have outgrown their current pots
  • Cut back geraniums and dahlias
  • Trim dead sections from lavender and other grey-leaf plants
  • Remove summer-flowering annuals
  • Trim hedges
  • Trim trees including natives
  • Clear out compost bins
  • Mulch
  • Aerate lawns and add lawn seed
  • Divide and replant congested, messy plantings, including agapanthus, clivia, iris, and mondo grass.
  • Clean and net ponds
  • Tidy borders
  • Revamp or re-landscape your garden
  • Plant evergreens
  • Clean your paths and driveways
