Many families spend time together every October picking out pumpkins to carve for Halloween. Carving is usually done shortly before October 31st, not allowing most to enjoy the glowing jack-o-lantern it has been transformed too. However, with a little bit of know how and extra work you can extend the life of your carved pumpkin!
Pumpkins are protected by their skin, once carved you are breaking the protective barrier the skin creates. Once carved organisms such as bacteria, mold and fungi begin to attack and start breaking down the pumpkin. Oxygen in the air also begins to dehydrate the pumpkin. Below are some simple steps to follow to help slow down the dehydration and rotting of your pumpkin.
How To Preserve Your Pumpkin
Step 1: Clean Your Pumpkin! Remove all excess dirt from the surface of your pumpkin.
Step 2: Create a bleach solution, by mixing 1 tablespoon of bleach per 1 quart of water. (Mixing in a spray bottle will be best) Use this to spray down the surface of your pumpkin, the bleach will kill the bacteria and mold on the pumpkin.
Step 3: Once you have carved your pumpkin spray all cut areas along with the inside to kill any other bacteria and mold.
Step 4: Once your pumpkin has dried from being sprayed (About 20 Mins), rub petroleum jelly on the carved surfaces and interior of your pumpkin. This will act as a protective barrier from new bacteria and help slow down the dehydration process.
Step 5: Keep your jack-o-lantern out of direct sunlight and out of below freezing weather.
If you have followed all of these steps you should get at least 1 week of enjoyment out of your jack-o-lantern, if not a little longer. Save your bleach spray and use it on your pumpkin daily for extra protection.
October is in full swing, and we can look forward to a spectacular show of fall colors. However, that also means preparing for the assortment of leaves that will coat the ground. Leaf removal is an essential part of fall landscaping and goes far beyond just curb appeal. Failing to remove fallen leaves can not only damage your lawn, but also become a breeding ground for fungi, disease and insects. Here at Berns landscaping, we offer both leaf removal services and a more in depth fall clean up. –

October is finally here and that means fall is in full swing. The leaves will turn from green to vibrant shades of yellow, orange and red. The leaves will begin to fall and the days will grow shorter. This means that the cold days of winter are growing near. Here are some helpful landscaping tips to get you through the fall as we head into the winter.
Rake fallen leaves, sticks and other debris as soon as possible to prevent damage to your lawn. However, leaving some of this debris in garden areas will act as a compost through the winter.
If you haven’t aerated or fertilized your lawn since earlier in the year, this is essential to do now before it starts getting to cold. Top dressing is also highly recommended, you can find out more about top dressing here.
Continue mowing your lawn on schedule, even though lawns slow down in the fall they are still growing and should continue to be mowed.
Continue to water plants as needed.
If you have any plants that have become more than 50% damaged consider removing & replacing them.
Plant spring bulbs now! A general rule we follow is to plant twice the depth of the bulb in the soil. Double check to ensure you are planting the bulb with the root end facing down.
While shade trees and deciduous shrubs can be planted up until the ground freezes, we recommend mid-October as a cutoff date for planting ever greens.
