Is Your Yard Ready for a Fall Frost? Cumming, GA
Fall Landscaping Cumming GA

As your pulling out your coats and winter hats this month to warm your body, don’t forget about your landscape. When temperatures take a nosedive during a fall frost, you don’t want your plants and flowers to get caught unprotected. In order to save your garden and lawn from that first chill in the air, it is important to know your checklist of what to do when overnight temperatures are expected to drop too low:

#1: Move Houseplants Back Inside
If you have houseplants or tender tropical plants that reside outdoors, it’s time to bring them back in. Before you do, however, check for pests and insects that aren’t invited in your home. If you discover pests or disease on your houseplants, make sure you treat them right away.
#2: Winterize Irrigation Systems
Take measures to winterize your automatic sprinkler system. You can do this yourself by turning off the main water supply, draining the system and opening it to relieve lingering pressure. If you water your lawn manually with a hose, go ahead and disconnect it from the outdoor faucet and store it properly.
#3: Protect Your Plants
Make sure you know which plants in your landscape are frost-tolerant and which ones are sensitive to cold. If you have plants or flowers that need some protection during a frost, cover them with burlap or a blanket for the night. For gardeners, till the soil around your vegetable plants to expose unwanted insects and go ahead and pick the vegetables that are ready.

In many cases, the first frost isn’t the beginning of winter. There are several more weeks of warm air to enjoy. However, just one night of freezing temperatures can ruin parts of your landscape. At Pannone’s Landscaping and Lawn Pros, experts can help you winterize your lawn and preserve your plants through the coming months.

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!!
