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

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.

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!

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!
