'Organizing' Your Lawn and Garden For Winter

Here in Minnesota, the leaves are beginning to change as the beautiful season of Fall is upon us.  Along with changing leaf colors and cooler temps, Fall brings a chance for us to 'organize' our lawn and gardens to ensure a successful lawn and garden for next spring.

While most of the organization Closets For Life does happens inside the home or garage, we are always happy to encourage organization in all areas of life.  That is why we are bringing to you today some helpful links on preparing your yard for winter.  Happy fall and happy organizing everyone!
