Fall is a truly beautiful season here in the Midland, Bay City and Saginaw area.  Make sure you get out and enjoy it!

However, the flip side of this beautiful time of year is that the harsh weather of winter will be here soon.  To help you be sure that your yard will be able to survive the winter and come back healthy in the spring, we’ve  come up with a Winterization Checklist of a few things that you’ll want to do for your landscape.

This checklist can help the do-it-yourselfer, but if you’d rather just enjoy the fall season and not worry about these things, contact Reder Landscaping and let us take of everything for you.




  • Get all the leaves out of your egress windows.  This is so the drainage stone in your window wells won’t clog up, which can cause water issues in your basement come spring.
  • Clean out all your gutters and bubbler drains.
  • If you have problems with mice and rodents, late fall is a good time set bait away from your house to control them.
  • If you have a water feature or pond, be sure to pull the pump and winterize your system.
  • If you have a swimming pool, be sure to have it winterized.
  • Put away all ornamental planting pots and containers.
  • Mark out your driveway and walks if you use a snow removal service.

So give us a call and let Reder Landscaping get your yard ready for winter while you relax and enjoy the fall!
