Fall Landscape: Why Do Leaves Change Color? Cumming, GA
Fall Landscaping Cumming GA

One of the most loved traits about Autumn is the leaves changing color. As you watch the leaves transform from green to a vibrant orange, yellow or red, have you ever thought about why or how this happens? The science found in nature is quite fascinating.

Leaves remain green due a chemical called chlorophyll, which is the same chemical that helps make photosynthesis happen. As the shorter days of autumn approach, the trees “know” that winter is coming. Since photosynthesis does not occur during winter (due to lack of light and water), the trees begin shutting down their food-making process and rely on stored food instead. In doing so, the chlorophyll chemical that makes the leaves green will slowly dissipate.

The browns, reds, oranges and yellows that begin to emerge are simply the colors that have been there all along; the chlorophyll green has just covered them up during the summer and spring! Each tree type has a certain color, such as deep reds for Maple and brown for Oak. Together, they bring out a breathtaking combination of fall foliage colors for us to enjoy. The leaves will begin to turn green again when the days get longer and the trees restart photosynthesis.

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!!
