Landscape Care For the Fall Season

Fall is the best time to plant flowering trees, shrubs & perennials –the temps are cooler and typically we have more rain. Landscape contractors also love to build hardscape features like patios, retaining walls and walkways in the fall. The cooler temps are perfect for laying heavy natural stone.

Soon it will also be a great time for pruning your existing landscape plants as well. November is the ideal month for removing unwanted or diseased/dying branches from trees and shrubs as they will be dormant and not actively growing. The pruning wounds will harden off on their own and your tree or shrub won’t blink an eye!

Fall is also a good time to cleanup your landscape so it looks great for the fall & holidays.
