As we’re nearing the end of summer, now marks the perfect time to start preparing our landscapes for the fall season! With cooler temperatures and less demanding plants, autumn is a great time to give your yard some extra care and attention. To help get you started, your local NH landscapers at Exclusive Service Group have put together the ultimate fall landscaping checklist to ensure your lawn remains healthy and well-maintained through the season!

Aerate and Fertilize the Lawn

Give your lawn some extra TLC by aerating it to improve soil compaction and enhance nutrient absorption. Follow up aeration by applying a fall-specific fertilizer rich in phosphorus and potassium to promote healthy root development and winter hardiness. This will ensure a lush and vibrant lawn come springtime!

Trim and Prune Trees and Shrubs

As the growing season starts to come to an end, take time to trim and prune your trees and shrubs. Removing dead or diseased branches not only improves the plant’s health but also reduces the risk of storm damage. Fall is also an ideal time for shaping hedges and ensuring that branches won’t interfere with power lines or structures during winter storms.

Plant Fall-Friendly Flowers and Bulbs

Enhance your landscape’s beauty with a splash of autumn colors by planting fall-friendly flowers and bulbs. Chrysanthemums, pansies, and ornamental kale are excellent choices for seasonal color, while planting spring-blooming bulbs like tulips and daffodils now will reward you with a vibrant display in the coming months.

Mulch Flower Beds and Garden

Before winter, apply a layer of mulch to flower beds and vegetable gardens to protect plants from freezing temperatures and fluctuating weather conditions. Mulch helps by acting as an insulating layer, helping to retain moisture and regulate soil temperature while also preventing weed growth.
