Fall is here!  Along with the beautiful fall colors of leaves and the crispness of the air, there are several yard items that need to be completed prior to winter.  Many factors are involved in creating a strong, healthy lawn. Fall yard care is extremely important if you want a great yard in the spring. The checklist below has the foundations of a sound yard maintenance program.
