As summer is winding down, and temperatures begin to cool off, we know Fall is in the air. Back to school routines, busy schedules and changes to the landscapes are all around us. As the air temperatures change, the sunlight retreats earlier, and the soil temperatures drop, we see changes all around us. As for our landscapes, out with the summer blooms and in with the fall materials. Planting beds and container gardens are refreshed with fall planter material, changing the bright summer colors to new autumn color scheme.

Fall Landscaping Projects, Ideas & Tips to Stay Ahead
As landscape professionals, we always give the same advice this time of year. Often, people will wait too long and miss out on this window of opportunity to have their bulbs planted. Don’t be the ones kicking yourself in the spring, but rather, the envy of your friends and neighbors.
Remember as a fall motto, fall is for planting. Bulbs must be planted in the fall season, before the ground begins to freeze. Daffodils, crocus, hyacinths, and tulips will all bloom in the springtime; giving you that early color display we always long for once winter passes. Every year, once winter passes we all look forward to seeing those first bursts of color in your yard. Everything comes back to life in the springtime when the new bulbs appear. While it may seem early right now to be thinking about next spring, now is the important time to plan ahead. To make sure your home is bursting with colors and springing into action after a long winter, start planting now.
