Your Fall Landscaping To-Do List Cumming, GA
Fall Landscaping Cumming GA

It’s finally here in Georgia. Fall was stubborn this year, but the cool crisp air and changing leaves are making an October appearance. Since winter temperatures are just around the corner, it is important to not only enjoy each day of this coveted fall season but also know what tasks we need to perform in our landscape. In fact, proper landscape maintenance this fall can help your outdoor space look its best all year long. Before you carve your pumpkins this fall, consider the following recommendations for your lawn:

Test Your Soil
Your soil can’t tell you what it needs. Therefore, testing your soil is the only way to get insight into the nutrient imbalance that may be lying beneath your landscape surface. A simple testing of your soil composition and pH testing can tell you if you’ve been wasting money in fertilizer or if you need to amend what you are putting on your lawn.
Feed with Mulched Leaves
Your landscape will love a good fall feeding. Consider going organic this year and use mulched leaves. As your leaves begin to fall, go ahead and let them be instead of raking them. Next, install a mulching blade to your mower to use on the fallen leaves every 3-5 days. You can enjoy a free fertilizer that naturally builds your soil while avoiding cumbersome raking.
Tend to Trees and Shrubs
Did you know that fall and early winter are the best times to plant trees and shrubs in the Southeast? The cooler temperatures allow them to get established in low stress conditions. For certain tree and shrub varieties, fall can also be a great time for light pruning before they go dormant. Ask a landscaping expert which trees may need maintenance before winter sets in.

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!
