5 Fall Landscape Fails Cumming, GA

Fall has finally arrived. It is a beautiful time of year as the leaves change color and the air gets crisper. However, it is not a time to just sit back and watch the leaves fall in your own backyard. Your landscape has specific needs that need to be addressed each season. Do yourself (and your neighbors) a favor and don’t fall victim to these 5 fall landscape fails:

Don’t Neglect Fallen Leaves
You may love the sight of falling autumn leaves. However, neglecting to pull out your rake periodically can result in a yard hazard. A sidewalk or driveway masked with wet, slippery leaves does not provide a safe environment for your family or visitors. Not to mention, you’re allowing your existing landscape to be covered up.
Don’t Fail to Clean Your Yard Tools
It is easy to just throw your tools in the shed for storage until spring. However, taking the time to clean them properly beforehand can ensure they are in top working condition when you need them next. Extra moisture and soil can corrode your garden tools over time, forcing you to buy a new set by spring.
Don’t Ignore the Need to Fertilize
Just because it is fall, does not mean your lawn doesn’t need care and fertilizers. Your lawn is still growing, just at a much slower rate. A turf that is well fertilized in the fall is more protected from winter damage. A professional landscaper can help you determine which fertilizer and care routine is best for your specific lawn this fall.
Don’t Wait to Plant Spring Bulbs
Now is the time you can plan for the most colorful blooms in the spring. Take advantage of the fall’s soft soil and choose some spring bulbs that can be planted now. Make sure you plant them deep enough to protect them from freezing.
Don’t Forget About Ground Cover for Color
While your fall landscape may not provide the colorful flowers of spring, there are still ways to make your landscape pop with color. Consider vibrant ground cover such as colored wood or rubber mulch. In addition, ask a professional about specific hedge plants that can show off some autumn hues.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

Ashley W.

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
