Fall Landscaping Tips


Sure, it's nice to get away on a vacation, but maybe the best place for your vacation is in your own backyard!Picture of children playing in green lawn with patio and flowering garden


You've made sure that it is beautiful; made sure that your landscape is nice and comfortable to be in. So, why not forget about the crowds, the clogged roads and filled hotels. Maybe this year you'll really relax and fully enjoy yourself in your own backyard!


Fall is the very best time to plant trees, shrubs, and new lawns. Never is the time better. Yet, most people's landscaping interest is greatest in the spring, thus they miss the benefits that accrue when "Bio-Dynamic Landscaping" is practiced.

  • Feed annuals one more time to help them bloom until frost, sometime in September is recommended.
  • To help control weeds next season... keep weeds under control now in your flower or vegetable garden.
  • Divide day lilies after flowering; other perennials if you haven't done it for several years.
  • Cut back begonias, geraniums and fuchsia; wash insects off; repot; bring indoors as houseplants.
  • Lawn diseases can still be prominent: dollar spot, cool weather prominent fusarium, powdery mildew, rust, leaf spot. Some will need treatment.
  • During the fall period, water is essential for your ornamental shrubs. They have suffered through the summer alongside your lawn and are taking up gargantuan amounts of water to get through the winter. If the fall is dry, supplemental watering is essential. You should be planning on having them fed to insure your investment, an inground irrigation system can also help insure your ornamentals get the water they require.
