As we eventually transition into the colder temperatures, there are considerations that a homeowner should do to keep their overall landscape safe and healthy. Once the leaves begin to color change and end up falling, you’ll need to protect your landscape during the transitional period.
The reality is that preparing your landscape for the colder months ahead is a must. Beyond fall, homeowners need to consider the brutal winters associated with the mid-Atlantic. There is no denying that winter comes a lot quicker than expected every year. Eventually, the cold will catch up with your landscape. Here are some excellent tips to keep in mind to protect your fall landscape against brutally cold weather.
Pruning Season Is Now
With the weather still relatively warm, it is the perfect time to prune your trees. Pruning your trees and shrubs during the growing season tends to be optimizing. To effectively maintain your plants healthy, prune them regularly during their growing months. Ultimately, cutting back on new growth during the growing season can elevate your fall landscape design.
Cutting Back on Perennials
If you have perennials in your yard, it might be beneficial to prune those first. As the colder temperatures hit, it is vital that you take care of your perennials since they’ll need to be stored effectively. Moreover, these specific types of plants tend to hold their energy in their roots, leaving you with a brown plant. So, taking the time to trim and prune your perennials will impact your fall landscape’s health.
