We’re heading into the fall season, and that means cooler weather is on its way. This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors, tend to your garden and improve your home’s curb appeal — all in one fell swoop.

Are you looking forward to spending some time sprucing up your yard and preparing your garden for autumn? Be sure to add these four tasks to your to-do list before getting started:

  • Start With the Basics: Pull up weeds, dig out your annual or seasonal bulbs, and clear out any leaves, dead plants and debris. You should also spend some time tilling the soil before adding new soil and mulch.

  • Prep for the Elements: You’ll want to invest in garden covers, which help guard against pests and colder temperatures. If you have an automatic sprinkler system, be sure to adjust its schedule since you’ll need less water when it’s not as hot outside.

  • Add Fall-Friendly Plants: If you removed seasonal plants, you could replace them with some that thrive in cooler weather. Chrysanthemums are a good flower for fall, and if you’re looking to plant produce, kale and cabbage are both smart options.

  • Include a Festive Touch: For even more curb appeal, consider adding some gourds, cornstalks or pumpkins. You can also change out your colorful summer flowerpots for orange- and red-hued ones.
