Prepping for Fall: Your Go To Guide for the Season
As the temperature slowly begins to dip, we look forward to bringing exciting new life to your landscape with the addition of autumn annuals such as mums, asters, and ornamental vegetables like cabbage and kale. Available in a wide variety of colors and sizes, they can easily be transplanted to a partly sunny location on your property, or as a seasonal update to refresh a container garden. Gerbert & Sons can help you determine the best combination of plantings to renew your landscape with color and vitality after the long, hot summer.
Tend to Your Greenery Too
Cooler conditions also provide a great opportunity to add trees and shrubs to fill in or complement areas of your yard that could benefit from a bit of additional greenery, and to remove any fallen, broken or weak branches before winter’s snow and ice makes them a danger.
It’s Bulb Time As Well
Make plans now to plant daffodil, tulip, and crocus bulbs before the end of October, so they can establish some root growth before the first frost sets in, and be ready to show off their colors in early spring.
Last But Not Least, Lawn Fertilization and Irrigation Inspections
Contact us to apply your lawn’s fall fertilization, bolstering it against the cold weather coming our way and promoting a strong and vibrant return when spring rolls back around. Be sure to schedule your appointment to have us inspect your irrigation system for any repairs or adjustments that might need attention and perform our expert winterization before the temperature starts moving towards freezing.
