Fall flowers

Your summer blooms will begin to fade in September, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for a garden devoid of color. There are plenty of hardy fall blooms to plant to add life to your outdoor landscape. Mums, pansies, ornamental grasses are just a few ideas.

Maintain your mulch

Is your mulch looking a little sun faded or dull? It’s an easy task to rake and turn your mulch to keep it looking fresh and neat. If need be, mulch again! It will help protect plants and keep your home looking tidy.

Plant

Fall is a great time of year to plant bulbs so when the winter finally says goodbye, you’ll be able to look forward to some gorgeous spring color. There is a definite window of time in which to plant; generally, if you can still dig, you can plant bulbs.  You’ll thank yourself in the spring when you see those first green shoots!

Clean up

We know those fall leaves are pretty, but they do need to be picked up. And those dead plants? Get rid of ‘em. Cleaning up your lawn, gardens, flower beds and pots is a chore but it will look much cleaner and orderly – as well as making it easier in the spring for you to get out there and get some fresh blooms going!
