Fall is on its way, which means unpacking your sweaters and scarves and sending your kids back to school. The end of summer and the beginning of fall are a good time to prepare your landscape for the winter weather that lies ahead; doing so will ensure that your landscape remains healthy. With proper preparations, your trees and lawn will be thriving next spring. Here are a few ways to prep your trees and landscape for the fall:
- Shrub and tree deep root fertilization: By fertilizing your trees and shrubs, you are allowing them to get the proper nutrients they need to develop deep root systems. Fertilizing also helps make them stronger and better able to fight off diseases and insects.
- Bush, Hedge, & Tree Trimming: The bushes, hedges, and trees on your lawn will need to be put to bed during the winter dormant season. Pruning your trees and bushes is essential in preserving their overall health. However, pruning too much at the wrong time can be detrimental and can kill your trees. It’s important to know when and where to prune before you start. At Jones Road Tree Service, we know the different species involved in your landscape and can help you prune your trees and prepare your yard for the fall and winter seasons!
- Remember to mulch: Any area in your landscape where there are trees and shrubs planted should also have a 2-3 inch layer of mulch. Mulch acts as a barrier and helps protect the roots from frost. Mulch is also critical in helping new and sensitive plants make it through a harsh winter. Mulch will actively protect your plants’ roots from frost and help them retain moisture.
