Fall Yard Tips

Here are some Fall landscaping tips for your yard from Integrity Landscaping:
  • Shrub and Tree Planting – Fall is the perfect time to plant and encourage good root development.  Fall planting helps the plants establish themselves before Spring.
  • Trim those yew bushes.  Now is the perfect time to shape and trim those yew bushes that grew wild during July and August.
  • Lawn Problems?  Now is a right time to sod or spot-seed barren or damaged areas.
  • It is still a good time for aeration and fertilization. 
  • Grub problems?  Fall is the right time to take control of the situation long term.
  • Weed until a freeze.  Failing to continue weeding will cause your weeds to spread and could make next season even worse.
  • No pruning for Spring shrubs!  Azaleas, Rhododendrons, and other flowering, spring shrubs have already set their buds for the following year; pruning them now will sacrifice next year’s spring flowers.
  • If you want to add a lovely autumn look to your exterior, plant your hardy mums now.
