Fall Landscaping Checklist

Start a compost pile

With all the abundant leaves covering your lawn and landscape, start a compost pile that can be used to help plant a vegetable garden next spring or even help you nourish your landscape.

Plant those springtime bulbs

Start planting any springtime bulbs you may have so they have time to get rooted into the soil and find the nourishment they need. Be sure to water them right away by watering them before you back fill them!

Move your household plants back in

Now that the nights are longer and the temperatures are lower, it is time to bring in your household plants that were out for the summer. Once you bring them in, it will be normal for them to lose a few leaves. Don’t worry too much, just make sure you check for pests regularly to ensure the plant’s health.

Check recently planted plants and trees for moisture

Fall is a great season to plant new shrubs and trees that you want to have bloom in the spring. Make sure they are adequately watered so they can survive the winter.
