When is the best time of year for a landscape installation?
Wanting to upgrade your landscape but not sure when is the best time to do so? Fall and spring are usually better than summer and winter to do most planting. When it comes to planting trees, shrubs, and perennials, April and May are two of the best months to do it. Avoiding planting in winter is recommended, as the ground may be too cold for new plants.
A close second to spring-time planting is to do planting in the fall. However, when planting in the fall, you’ll want to hire professional landscapers to give your new plants the best chance of surviving the winter. Usually, we’ll recommend the following as part of your routine fall landscaping:
- Mulching: Insulating the roots with a few inches of mulch on top helps the plant survive fluctuating temperatures.
- Watering: Watering frequently in the fall can help prepare your plant for the cold, dry winter.
- Pruning: The fall is a good time to remove dead, broken, and weak branches from trees and other plants, in preparation for winter.
