Fall is an excellent time to plant spring bulbs, properly prune trees and shrubs, manage existing beds, plan for new plant beds, install a sprinkler system, and start a new lawn.

Some great fall tasks:

a    Start planning the look for next year – divide and transplant perennials, move plantings for better effect, create new beds

a    Plant bulbs and fertilize – your lawn care professional can suggest some new and interesting varieties

a    Prune and mulch all trees and shrubs – this is an important step for optimal appearance

a    Clear those pesky weeds before they drop their seeds

a    Spread manure to prepare for next planting season

a    Get rid of those bare patches with sod or seed – fall is an excellent time to start a new lawn

a    Overseed the entire lawn to improve overall thickness and appearance — just remember not to use “weed and seed” fertilizer until the lawn is well established

a    Install an irrigation system, or add additional zones for better coverage – early fall is a great time for this task
