When it comes to planting, many of us think of the spring and summer months, forgetting about the fall. The Capital Region is fortunate enough to have the ideal weather that allows numerous types of plants to thrive until the snow comes. While the air is cooler during the fall, the soil is still warm enough to allow roots to grow before the ground freezes. There’s plenty of opportunity to incorporate new plants into your landscape design!
Planting During the Fall
While deciding what to plant, be sure to consult with our plant experts so we can provide you with the best tips, what to plant and where in addition to the professional care your perennials, trees, and grasses need.
- Trees and Shrubs: With the soil still warm enough for planting, this is a great time to add trees and shrubs to your landscape. For the new additions to thrive, it is best to keep them well-watered until they head into dormancy during the winter.
- Grasses: Not only does the cooler weather create the ideal scenario for lawn care and cleanup, but it’s also a good time for cool-season grasses such as Bluegrass and Fescue.
- Seasonal Flowers: Whether you’re more of a traditionalist and prefer mums for the fall, or you want something a bit different, there are plenty of options to choose from! Russian Sage, Goldenrod, Marigolds and many others bring life to fall gardens. If you prefer having them in containers along a walk way or in window boxes, our designers will create something that is truly beautiful!
Another benefit to working with our experienced professionals is the array of flowers and plants that we grow in our own nursery. We grow our own plants, including mums, annual flowers and more, that they can be used in your landscape’s design. This saves you the time and headache of finding the perfect plant on your own to incorporate into the design plan to bring your outdoor living space to life. With such a wide variety and varying colors, we’re sure to have the plants you want!
