Our Magical Fall Foliage
The natural beauty of our changing New England landscape lets us know autumn has arrived. Triggered by falling temperatures and shortened day lengths, chlorophyll production in the leaves stops, and the usual green color begins to break down. This process allows the yellow, orange, and sometimes red underlying pigments in the leaves to come forward, creating our famous fall scenery. While these leaves are gorgeous on the trees, they become a potential problem for your property if they accumulate on the lawn and in planting beds, blocking out the sun and trapping damaging moisture. The professionals at Gerbert & Sons will remove the fallen leaves around your yard throughout the season to keep your grass and plants healthy and vibrant, and your property attractive and inviting.
The Charm of a Fall Container Garden
As we approach the holiday season, adding a container garden or updating an existing one is the perfect way to warmly welcome back family and friends to our doorsteps. Amy Elizabeth Uva, our resident Horticulturist and Master Gardener, will create the perfect custom autumn container garden display to complement your home, adding color and texture with vibrant fall flowers and ornamental vegetables, leaves, and stems. Varying planting heights, soft grasses, and seasonal decorations, combined with the perfect container, add a unique touch to your property and keep the wonder of nature alive as the days grow grayer.
