It won’t be long and a color will wash all the deciduous trees in the Warsaw, Winona Lake, Syracuse, Ft. Wayne, Columbia City and Culver areas with the magnificent color of fall foliage. October in Warsaw, IN and Syracuse, IN is one of the busiest time of our landscaping season only second to April through June.
Our fall clean up and landscape maintenance work will culminate in December, when hard pruning begins, but for now it’s all hands on deck to get our fall project work completed and fall leaf clean ups finished.
Here is a list of things that your Warsaw, IN landscape will need as we move into fall.
- Fall in Warsaw, IN brings some of the best weather conditions for starting new plantings. As the weather cools and the days get shorter, many plants grow roots deeper into the soils more easily so now is a great time to install a new landscape, renovate your existing landscape, or transplant some of your existing plant material. Now is also a good time to overseed your lawn.
- Propagate. Are there any plants in your Syracuse, IN landscaping that you would like to reproduce? How about taking cutting before the first frost? Now is a good time to do both if you live in Warsaw, IN or Syracuse, IN.
- Germinate. Fall is a great time to plant seeds or overseed your lawn. Now is also a good time to start a wildflower garden from seed.
- Frost Protection. In Warsaw, IN, frost and potential freezing isn’t far off and your delicate plants will need some protection if you want them to look good next season.
- Feeding. If you own a home in Warsaw or Syracuse, fall is a great time to fertilize your plants so they aren’t nutrient deficient next spring. Use fertilizers made specifically for the plant. Fall is also the best time of year to feed your lawn. Need a lawn fertilization program? We can help you there as well.
- Weeds. Don’t be afraid to put down some more pre-emergent herbicide in your landscape beds that will give you even better weed control next spring and summer.
