Making the Most of the Fall Landscape Season
There’s nothing like a beautiful landscape to ponder over. Especially with the seasons changing, your landscape also changes. From winter to spring, to summer to fall, your landscape will go through fluctuations that call for your attention. If you want to extend the life and maintain your landscape, especially during the fall, we’ll tell you how. Also, we’ll inform you of tips on how to make the most of the fall landscape season.
Separate Your Plants
Over time, some plants tend to get too big. To save money, you can cut in half the plants that are too large and plant them somewhere else. That way, you will have a new plant growing in a different area, without having to buy a new one. If your plants are crowding, it may be time to transplant. When temperatures are cool, and it’s damp, some plants are easily removable, such as Azaleas and Spirea. This allows for better organizing and breathing room for your plants.
During the fall, it’s important to weed thoroughly. If you want to control the weeds from spreading sparsely, remove the roots. For maximum weed control, make sure to keep weeding even during late summer, as that’s when the weeds become unruly.
During fall, expect to start raking leaves and trimming your plants. At this point, it’s time to get ready for spring. Cleaning up during fall allows for energizing the mulch, while successfully controlling the weed come springtime. We provide professional property maintenance services and would be glad to assist!
Plant Your Seeds
The fall season is the absolute best time to start seeding and reseeding.
These three factors make fall the best time for planting:
Soil temperature: The soil tends to be warm during this time. It’s not too hot, and not too cold, just right.
Resilient roots: Below the ground, the roots are revitalized and going deeper.
Moisture increases: During this time, the rain returns, allowing for a better environment for growth.
Fall is a time to give your landscape the utmost attention. It’s the season where your plants require the most maintenance, growth, and the change to seed new plants. Introducing brand new species of plants that aren’t already in your garden bed is also an option, as it’s a time where plants will flourish. Follow these tips presented in this article, and you will be sure to have a pristine landscape, filled with happy plants.
