Fall is starting this week, and we are starting to see signs. As summer is winding down, and temperatures begin to cool off, we know Fall is in the air. The evenings are getting darker earlier, the first signs of colors changing in the foliage. Back to school routines, busy schedules and changes to the landscapes are all around us. Homeowners this time of year are often looking for fall landscape tips or advice on ways to best improve their property.
There are three important things to consider this time of year, when it comes to your property.
- Fall is for Planting. As a general rule of thumb and important fall landscape tips we tell all our clients. This is the best time of year to redesign your landscape and plant in your garden. Consider Fall your time for a landscape makeover, and get everything planted into the ground before in freezes. Use this time to plan for changes you would like to see, that you were unable to achieve this year. It is the season to put your gardens to rest, and plan for next year.
2. Fall also means it is time for spring bulbs. Bulbs need to be planted in the next few months, before the ground freezes. That way, once winter passes, your property will come to life in bursts of colors and flowers. Mums and pansies can be planted right over your spring bulbs, providing fall colors. This way, you can plant for two seasons at once.
- Fall displays! Although not so vast as summer annuals, there are still many choices to enhance your fall landscape through the colder months to comes. Mums, kale and cabbages to fall pansies, perennials and ornamental grasses are all popular choices. Combined with fall displays using pumpkins, gourds, hay and other seasonal ornaments, apple baskets, crates and Indian corn, they are a festive and impressive way to dress up your front lawn this season.
Fall is the time of year to get work done in the yard you were unable to make happen this year. Use this time of year to plan ahead. Consider changes you would like to see to your home next year, and use the colder months to plan for it. Whether you wish to expand upon your gardens, have a full property clean up, or brand new outdoor living spaces. This is the time of year to plant and plan for it.
