Fall is the perfect time to plant trees, shrubs and bulbs for spring. In fact, autumn is actually the best season to get many hardy plants into the ground. If you’ve put off starting a new bed or missed getting those trees in last spring, you can still do so any time between now and the first hard frost.
The cooler fall temperatures and increased rain helps root development and reduces the initial shock a plant experiences when it is transplanted. Transplant shock is also reduced because the plants are in their winter dormancy period. Planting during this time also gives maximum amount of time for the plants to grow before the hot, drier weather of the following summer.
Don’t forget you can also fertilize your lawn and control weeds this time of year. A healthy lawn with thick grass prevents soil erosion and absorbs rainwater. By soaking up rainwater, lawns decrease the amount of storm water runoff.
