Our fall services…

October 6, 2008

Now is a great time to get on the calendar for fall work that will help keep your gardens looking their best while preparing them for a good winter and a beautiful (next) spring.  Ways to do this are:

1.  Planting fall annuals: Gardens can be kept interesting throughout the fall season with plantings of kale cabbage and mums to name a few (see images below)

2.  Fall bulb planting: Bulb planting now will result in a spring garden filled with tulips, daffodils and crocus (see examples of tuilps/daffodils below)

3.  Garden Renovation: Plant division and cutbacks – We can rearrange problem areas in the garden as well as dividing plants to thin out over-crowded areas and use divisions to fill in empty areas.

4.  Seasonal Arrangements for winter: Planting pots with wintertime arrangements can really help a yard celebrate the season.  Below are two examples of planters we did last year

5.  Winter protection from cold and critters: As winter approaches it is important to put the garden to bed.  Covering the plantings with hay helps to protect fragile perennials from harsh winter conditions and wrapping small tress helps protect them from animals.
