By the time you start thinking of what Halloween costume to buy for this year’s party, there are a number of fall landscaping duties your Landscape Management Service should complete before winter, to get ready for the next growing season.
Let’s take a look:
- Leaf removal– We know you don’t want fallen leaves to smother your grass over the winter. Come fall, the leaves bombard your property with a vengeance. We can take care of the pesky Fall leaves that cover your yard. If you have a place for the leaves, we can blow them all into a pile and move them to that location where they will degrade for compost.
- Rototill garden soil- Rototilling now may seem a bit early but it will make the Spring growing season go much better. Rototilling should happen at least twice a year; once in the fall and once in the spring.
- Winterize Small Shrubs- reinforce small, fragile shrubs and trees with a lean-to or some other structure to keep ice from forming on their limbs during the coming months.
- Clean and Mulch- your perennial garden beds, as part of your fall landscaper’s duties. Remove old stalks and leaves to keep your garden disease
- Plant spring flowering bulbs- like tulip, daffodil and hyacinth. Overcrowded beds should be loosened and the bulbs divided and replanted now.
- Continue to plant shrubs and trees– It’s beginning to get chilly outdoors, but the soil is still warm enough for proper root growth.
