Autumn Gardening tips

Australia has entered autumn, and many flowers and trees will wither, so this is a good opportunity to tidy up your own garden. The garden can reflect a family’s diligence, taste and wisdom. Autumn is a wonderful time to get outdoors and give your garden a timely refresh.

Collecting fallen leaves

When cleaning up your garden, you can collect all the fallen leaves and plants that are starting to wilt and add them to your compost pile or use them as mulch for your flower beds. The reason is that fallen leaves are natural fertilizers. Decaying fallen leaves are nutrient-rich and extremely beneficial to your garden soil.

In addition, cleaning up or collecting fallen leaves can make your garden tidier and leave a good impression on visiting guests.

Maintenance your lawn

Autumn is a good time to plant new lawns and rejuvenate existing lawns, but it’s best to wait until the weather turns cold and it may rain. First, remove all hay, stones and stubborn weeds, and then loosen the soil. Try to repair those bare ground with grass seeds and keep plenty of water during the growth of newly sprouted grass. Autumn is one of the best times to fertilize your lawn, to keep them protected over the upcoming winter months.

Growing new vegetables

Planting new vegetables doesn’t need to wait until spring for some varieties. Vegetables suitable for growing in autumn (March to May): garlic, cauliflower, radish, lettuce, parsley, peas, celery, spinach, spring onions, dutch beans, etc.

Having a new garden bed

Autumn is a good time to start designing and planning a new garden bed. You should do some preparation now so you can get a jump start on seed planting in Spring. If you need to do any building or ask a landscaping expert for advice, now is the time to do it.
