Fall Lawn and Landscaping Maintenance Cumming, GA
a house with well-maintained lawn

It is November in Georgia and Fall is officially here. There is a little chill in the air and the leaves are starting to turn and fall. When we think of Fall, many people think of football games and Thanksgiving turkey. While these are important events that take place in the Fall, Autumn is also an excellent time to prep your lawn and landscaping for the next growing season. In November, the cooling temperatures slow above ground growth and that combined with the moist soil promotes strong root development. There are a few lawn maintenance things you can do in the Fall to give your lawn and landscaping the best possible chance at thriving in the Spring. Below is a list of suggested Fall lawn and landscaping tasks:

  1. Remove any spent stems and dead branches from your plants. Also, remove the heavy leaf cover from your grass. Removing the dead leaves from your lawn will prevent the leaves from blocking the sunlight.
  2. Aerate your lawn. This will allow water and nutrients to reach the roots of your lawn.
  3. Feed your lawn with a high-phosphorous mix of fertilizer. This will encourage roots so that your turf will green up earlier in the Spring.
  4. Mow your grass one final time. You may want to go a little bit shorter than usual for your final mow of the season. Be careful not to go too low!
  5. Collect any fallen leaves from your yard and store them somewhere they can decompose naturally. The result will be a rich fertilizer that can be used to nourish lawns, flowerbeds and shrub borders during the next growing season.

After your Fall lawn and landscaping maintenance is finished, you can relax in front of a football game and drink a nice hot cup of apple cider. In the Spring, when your lawn turns green and your flowers and plants start to bloom, you will be glad you took the time to maintain them in the Fall.

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!

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!

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!!
