Give your landscape some fall attention too

We’ve talked about how important fall lawn care – including fertilization -- is to the health of your lawn.   Did you know your landscaping plants could benefit from late fall fertilizing as well? Once the cooler weather sets in and your plants begin to lose their foliage, active growth has obviously slowed.  That doesn’t mean the plant is dead or dormant though; the action is just underground.  By fertilizing at this point, the plant will use the nutrients for root development rather than producing new leaves.   Excess nutrients will be stored in the roots and will help your plants survive the winter and give them a boost in the spring. You’ll need to consider your soil composition and types of plants when making decisions about fertilizing.   If you have questions or would like a free estimate, give us call and you will be investing in a beautiful spring landscape.
