It’s the season to get ready for the winter. Preparing now will ensure your property is protected as the colder weather arrives. We’ve included some fall landscaping tips to help you get started. This month is also the time of year to clean dead branches and leaves from the lawn and property. And begin to winterize trees and shrubs by installing burlap wraps or building a shelter for them. Doing this work now can help your property off to a good start next spring.

The Effects of Too Much Rain On Your Landscape

The past few months we have seen an excessive amount of rain, which can cause problems for your lawn and  property. The ground is saturated and will take awhile to dry out. As a result, there maybe root damage, insects, and erosion. Before the cold sets in, check for plant decline, slowed growth and yellowing foliage. It can take weeks or months to recognize if too much water has caused any harm to the landscape, plants and lawn.

Our team is available to assist with fall clean up and to check your landscape for any rain damage. We will make sure your property is ready and assess any work that needs to be done properly and efficiently.

Fall Landscaping Tips: 

  • Raking leaves
  • Trimming plants
  • Pruning trees
  • Removing debris from the garden
  • Making compost bin
  • Continuing to water and mow the lawn
