Refresh your yard for fall and plant now for spring
September is a great time to add the colors and textures of autumn to your landscape with hearty chrysanthemums and asters, along with ornamental kale and cabbage. Replacing fading annuals with fresh, bright fall flowers keeps your property looking vivid and inviting as we change seasons. Our horticultural experts can suggest the right bulbs to plant now for a burst of color to welcome the return of spring. The cooler weather of early fall is ideal for adding trees and shrubs to your landscape, allowing them to form healthy root systems before the ground freezes. Certain trees will benefit from a professional pruning to avoid possible damage from the winds and snows of the coming winter. Take advantage of this new season to add a touch of nature’s beauty to your property.
Preparing your property for the change of seasons
At this time of year, we turn our attention to ensuring your landscape is ready for the challenging and stressful conditions ahead. We will perform a careful evaluation to determine if your lawn would benefit from dethatching and aerating, loosening the soil to increase the rate of oxygen absorption, promoting root growth and health. With the temperatures becoming more moderate and the ground still warm, overseeding thin or bare areas now allows this new grass to germinate and become established before the threat of winter sets in. A custom application of our organic fall fertilizers to your lawn, shrubs, trees and woody ground covers will keep their nutrients at appropriate levels to sustain them through the upcoming harsh weather, and to come back healthy and beautiful with the return of spring.
