- Have a storm drain near your home? Act as its guardian and keep it free of litter and leaves.
- Continue to rake or sweep tree leaves and grass clipping from streets, driveways, sidewalks and dispose of at the City’s compost site. Never dispose leaves or grass clippings along shoreland, in ravines, in drainage ditches or in wetlands.
- If leaves are less than two inches thick on your lawn, consider mulching them in place by making several passes with a power mower. Your lawn will look raked, and the shredded leaves will provide nutrients back to your lawn.
- Fall is the best season to fertilize your lawn and control common weeds. Weed and feed responsibly. Use fertilizers and pesticides only as needed and always read and follow product instructions.
- Be phosphorus conscious! Minnesota’s Phosphorus Lawn Fertilizer Law requires use of phosphorus-free fertilizer on established lawns unless soil testing shows a need for phosphorus. Re-establish vegetation on bare soil spots.
- Pick up and properly dispose of pet waste to prevent not only nutrients but also harmful bacteria from reaching our local lakes rivers and streams.
