Prepare Your Soil
A fantastic way to improve the quality of your soil is by using compost. To make your own compost at home, simply place a cylinder in a shaded area and fill it with wet leaves, grass clippings and veggie scraps. After three to six months, the heap will have decomposed into nutrient-rich compost that is perfect for nourishing your soil.
Prune Plants & Trees
It’s a good idea to prune your trees before wintertime rolls around. Flowering plants should also be pruned after they bloom.
