Fall has officially arrived! As temperatures begin to drop, leaves turn red and orange, and rainy days make an appearance, it is incredibly important to make sure you are taking care of your landscape. Proper care during the fall can help your landscape survive the winter more easily and enjoy a stronger season of growth come spring. Continue reading to learn more about the benefits of careful landscape maintenance during fall.
It Prepares Your Landscape for Spring
In winter, low temperatures and heavy rainfall can be devastating to a landscape, especially if it is poorly maintained. Careful fall maintenance tasks—such as plant and debris removal and fertilization—can help your trees, shrubs, turf, and plants bounce back more easily after winter so they are ready to thrive in the spring.
It Protects Your Turf
While fall leaves are beautiful, they need to be removed from your turf. A layer of leaves on the ground will block out sunlight, moisture, and adequate airflow, which results in brown patches and diseases. To protect your turf, all leaves need to be removed on a regular basis.
It Prevents Plant Diseases
Fallen diseased leaves, branches, and twigs can easily infect plants, especially when they are left on or near a plant throughout fall and winter. While landscapes tend to struggle throughout winter, diseases can easily survive and continue to damage surrounding plants well into spring. Removing old, dead, and diseased trees, plants, and shrubs in the fall can prevent the spread of fungal and bacterial inspections in the following season.
