Fall isn’t just time to get the kids back to school, enjoy hayrides and indulge in pumpkin flavored everything; it’s the perfect time to get plants in the ground! Although summer is thought of a time for planting and being outdoors, the best time to introduce trees and shrubs in to your yard is after Labor Day when the weather cools down a bit.
Since trees and plants are living things, they naturally need water to survive. In fall, the ground tends to be cooler and retains more moisture which creates ideal conditions for newly re-planted flora. With the ground retaining moisture at a lower temperature that means it is also environmentally friendly(and nice on your wallet too)!
If you keep up with the Joneses (or Kardashians), planting in the fall gives you a competitive edge and jump start for spring blooms. So while you’re eating a pumpkin bagel with pumpkin cream cheese and drinking pumpkin coffee with pumpkin spice creamer, relax and let us do the work!
