Real Estate Broker/Owner with Century 21 Sherlock Homes


Fall is a great time of year to work outside.  A lot of garden and landscape chores are neglected over the Summer and it's not too hot, cold or wet to do them in Autumn.  

Fixing up the landscape will make it look nice through next Spring.  Some tips are:

After the first frost, dig up Summer flowering bulbs like cannas, dahlias and gladiolus.

Many perennials can be divided and replanted as they go dormant.

One thing that many people want to do in the Fall - but probably shouldn't - is pruning.

Plant small plants like ground covers before the first frost so they can establish a root system before Winter.

Harvest any green fruit that will be frosted and bring them inside so it can ripen indoors.

Fall is the best time to rototill the garden because the soil usually isn't too wet.

Hi Liz- Our Fall landscaping is a bit different here!  We finally have cooler weather so we can plant some of our colorful flowers.

We are having an extremely wet start to our fall here in the Pacific NW.  I usually re-seed my lawn that last few weeks of Sept. and let nature water.  But this year . . . it's really like a flood.  The backyard re-seed looks good though.  And I love the fall colors.  They really cheer me up and we have vibrant colors this year too!
