Why Fall Is A Great Time For Landscaping

We are now in the fall season! For homeowners, this means change is coming to your landscape. 

Fall is an excellent time to get started on any landscaping goals and ambitions you haven’t yet – like planting, or gardening, for example.

In this blog article, we will explore why fall is an excellent season with a number of advantages for home improvement. We’re here to help you cultivate an awesome-looking landscape that you can be proud of.

The Ideal Planting Season

Believe it or not, many cite fall as the ultimate season to plant garden plants, including spring bulbs, pansies, violas, trees, shrubs, and the likes. This is due to the fact that the air temperature drops, yet the ground temperature remains warm. This duality makes for optimal planting conditions that you should certainly take advantage of.

Whichever plant or plants you choose for your landscape, there’s no doubt you will see more color and pop by the time spring rolls around. Plant today to see excellent results tomorrow.

Fall: The Best Season To Plant Grass

Though it may also come as a surprise, fall is the supreme season to plant grass seed. For the same reasons mentioned above (the air getting colder but the ground remaining warm), grass seed thrives in the conditions of the fall months. 

More specifically, grass seed grows best when soil temperature is around 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. If you would like to gauge the temperature of your soil, it is recommended that you purchase a quality soil thermometer to get the job done. 

In addition to this, sod installation can be done anytime of year- as long as freezing temperatures and frozen earth conditions are not present. Fall is great for sod as the heat of summer is not evaporating the water needed to get the sod acclimated as fast.

Embracing The Natural Scenery

When it comes to making your landscape shine in the fall months, sometimes nature just does the work for you! The aesthetic of falling leaves and their bright, robust colors are enough for one to bask in the beauty that fall has to offer. 

When it comes to your landscape – why try harder? Many homeowners love to get in the fall mood with pumpkins, squash, and other fall décor items like annual plantings of mums.
