ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-November is knocking on our door and the time to ready your yard for winter is almost up. Taking some time now to get your lawn ready for the cold season will make it that much easier to return to the great outdoors next spring

Now is the time to store your mower, hoses,  and any other lawn equipment.

Rake your lawn often so that your grass will not be blocked from receiving the sun’s nutrients. Clean your gutters of fallen leaves to prevent blockages. You can deposit the leaves in a compost bin or mulch pile, or check with your local municipality to see if your neighborhood has access to a leaf collection service. You can find additional uses for fallen autumn leaves here.

And don't forget to aerate and seed you lawn.
