Landscaping in the Fall

Landscaping in the Fall

There are many projects to be completed as the weather cools down. Landscaping in the fall provides several opportunities to improve your lawn. Maintenance to consider this fall includes aeration, seeding, clean up, and planting. Let’s go over how these services can help your lawn thrive.

Fall Aeration & Seeding

Aeration, followed directly by seeding, is done in early fall. These services improve the health and overall strength of your grass. The process of aeration consists of creating small holes in the soil. This allows air, water, and nutrients to reach the roots of your grass. Seeding helps the density of your lawn and fills in any bare spots. Professionals will spread grass seed directly on existing turf. The cooler weather in fall helps establish a strong root foundation. An important thing to remember is that landscaping in the fall helps prepare your lawn for the spring.

Fall Clean Up

There are many benefits of yard clean up. Moving items such as lawn furniture, trampolines, or swing sets lets the grass below breathe. Another crucial part of fall clean up includes leaf removal. If leaves are left on the lawn too long, they can suffocate the grass beneath them. We recommend two to three leaf removals a year.

Fall Planting

One of the best times to plant trees or shrubs is during the fall. The cooler weather allows roots to have time to develop before winter. This will increase the survival chances of shrubs and trees during the next year. Make sure to maintain and water your plants so they can have a healthy foundation.

Fall landscaping is a must if you want your lawn to bounce back after winter ends. Aeration, seeding, clean up, and planting are services you will not want to skip on this year. A professional lawn care company can expertly care for your lawn and help it thrive year round.
