Fall landscaping care is just as important as the care you provide during the growing seasons. Keeping up with landscaping during these next couple of months can make your landscaping easier when the temperatures start to warm up again.
Keep up with raking leaves as they fall. The plants around your landscape make food from the sunlight they receive. If there are leaves and other debris in the way, it will be harder for them to continue to grow.
Now is the time to weed and trim back any dead branches. By pruning your landscaping, it will be easier for them to sprout new growth in the spring.
Fertilizing in the fall is great for the root system of your lawn and plants. It is a way to provide extra food and nutrients to the roots. The stronger the root system, the easier the winter will be.
“We highly recommend keeping up with your landscaping and lawn care, even during the winter months. Raking leaves and addressing any other plant-related issues when it’s cold out can save you some hassle when the weather starts to get warmer,” says Brian Rayman, owner of Environmental Design, Inc.
