Here is your fall landscaping checklist for your beautiful landscape. Now that we are in the first month of fall, its time to start whipping out the shovels, rakes, and trowels to take advantage of the good weather while we still have it and get other plants ready for the spring. There is plenty to get done, so let’s get started!
Keep on watering
Keep to your watering schedules and make sure you are watering plants once a day, especially if they were just planted. If you are planting more in the fall, here’s a trick to help you water. Once you put the plant in the ground, and before you back fill it, fill it with water so the new plant is able to get water all the way down to its lowest roots.
End of the year planting
Make a list of the plants you want to incorporate in your landscape. Fall is a great time to plant because it is not as hot as the summer months and there is more moisture in the air, creating more suitable conditions for new plants. This is also an ideal time to start buying and planting spring time bulbs as well.
Cleaning your houseplants
If you had houseplants and brought the outside for the summer, it is time to start cleaning them so they are ready to start coming inside when the temperatures start to drop. Check for pests and brush off any insects who may have used your plant for shelter this summer.
Rake the leaves
It is that time of the year again where you will have to start raking the yard again. If you don’t have one, consider starting a compost pile that can be used for a vegetable garden, future plantings, or to just add nutrients to your landscape already.
Though it may be toward the end of the season, it is never to late to start working on that landscape of your dreams. If you need any help at all, let us help by contacting Gary at [email protected].
