Fall Best Time For Planting?

Don't let people out there fool you - fall is actually the best time for planting! Most people will say no way with the cold weather coming up, but here is why fall is actually a good time to get the new plants into the ground. Just because most plants and trees lose all their leaves and go cold for the winter, this is only what you can see. What you can't see, is what is going on underneath the soil. These roots and bottoms are actually just beginning and are 'firing up.' By the start of the spring these plants will already have a leg up on the newer plants being put into the ground in the spring and will come out of the gate faster to bloom early! This is a very important piece to keep in mind and if you have any additional questions or want to learn which types of plants work best, be sure to call your local Potomac MD landscape designer today!

The Fall Season Is Upon Us

Some other signs include football on the weekends, leaves falling off the trees, and traffic being terrible again because of all the kids back in school. Now is the perfect time to examine your yard and see what work needs to be done for the transition into the cooler days and nights ahead. I know it is a bummer seeing the bright flowers start to go but there are definitely fall ideas out there you can use to keep your yard looking fresh. Make sure to call your West Chester landscape designers today to learn how they can help with the transition.
