Now that summer is winding down, as property owners, we have to do different things to our lawns to get them ready to become dormant for the winter. Not only that but this time of year is also a perfect time to prepare for the next growing season. If you want your lawn and plants to look even better next year, now is the time to get started on it. Impeccable Landscapes can help you with any or all of the following landscape services:
Believe it or not, fall is a great time to aerate your grass. All of the rain that has fallen this summer has compacted the dirt under your grass and is not letting in the nutrients that your soil needs. By aerating your lawn, you can get this much needed food to your grass and soil.
Collect The Leaves
Collecting falling leaves seems like a never ending chore. Once you mow or rake up all of the leaves, you turn around only to discover that your lawn is covered once again. This cycle continues over and over until the last leaf falls. It is important to keep up with the falling leaves as much as possible. Leaving them on the ground can cause your grass to die because the sun and vital nutrients cannot reach the soil.
Early fall is the perfect time to both plant and trim shrubs. If you plant shrubs now, it gives the plant extra time to establish roots before it goes dormant. On the other side, trimming existing shrubs now can help it recover before the cold sets in and protect it from breaking off from wind or other natural occurrences.
