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

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

Denise D.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Peter G.

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
