Most people seem to think fall landscaping is all about the cleanup; removal of leaves and debris that start falling. While a thorough fall cleanup is important in late fall, we at Gardenin' Angels have always felt that autumn is the most opportune time to plant and care for your lawn and garden. The soil and ground temperature is perfect for planting and transplanting and the New England weather is pleasant to work in. There's also typically good rainfall and robust root activity of your plants and shrubs in fall.
We love this article "Get Ready for Fall Planting" from This Old House because it has great advice on fall care for your lawn, trees and shrubs, annuals and perennials and leaves. Check it out HERE.
