Condition your lawn
It is very important to take care of the lawn before the frost starts. One of the most important tasks you should do in autumn is to remove fallen leaves from the lawn on a regular basis, as they deprive it of light and end up creating moss due to moisture.
It is advisable to mow the lawn approximately every two weeks, depending on its growth, and leave it at a height of 5cm so that the sun can reach it well and the roots are protected. We should also scarify the lawn, to aerate the soil and remove dead grass that chokes the grass. Finally, at the end of the season, it is recommended to fertilize with a fertilizer with a high level of potassium that helps protect the lawn from frost and reinforce it.
Just as we mow the lawn, we should prune and clean the plants and shrubs that have wilted during the summer. To prevent them from rotting, we should remove all the leaves and clean them so that they get the sun and receive the air they need.

Check the proper functioning of the drainage system of the pots to expel excess water.
Protect plants and delicate furniture
If you have delicate plants, you will have to protect them from the cold and frost to make them last. Protect them from the storms under the porch or in their defect inside the house, always leaving them in a very luminous zone. Renew the soil so that they have more nutrients in the face of the cold.
As well as protecting your plants, you should protect the most special furniture, avoid its oxidation with the help of tarpaulins and try to leave them under a roof.
Plant new bulbs
It is time to plant bulbs, which can withstand the weather, so that they bloom in spring and those that bloom even during the autumn. It is also the best time to plant fruit trees and shrubs, because when spring arrives they will already be adapted to the soil and will flower more strongly.
