4 Ideas for Fall Landscaping Projects

The onset of fall is not only a welcome change from the heat of the summer, it's also a precursor to the holiday festivities to come. What better time to get out in the yard, enjoy the crisp autumn air and work on some fall landscaping projects?

1. Trim and water shrubs and trees.
Use hedge trimmers to scale back shrubs and trees, and then deep-water them using a soaker hose or deep-root feeder. Deep-watering gets shrubs and trees hydrated for the winter ahead.

2. Trim back perennials, removing dead leaves and tops, as well as damaged stalks.

Most flowering perennials will die back to the ground in the fall, leaving nothing but their dead tops. To coax the best performance out of these flowers during the blooming season, cut them back before winter arrives. Top-trimming or deadheading the plants will encourage them to focus energy on producing buds and flowers, rather than forming seeds.

3. Divide or relocate any perennials or shrubs.

Give perennials ample water after you move them. When relocating shrubs, pull up as much of the root ball as possible, and then replant it in a hole three times its size. Water copiously to remove air pockets around the roots.

4. Keep compost alive throughout the winter.

Turn your compost once a week to render nutrient-rich soil that you can use in your garden
in the spring.
