October Landscaping Tips

These landscaping tips keep your garden pristine in October!

October is the quintessential season for fall in Maryland; in this area, it’s when the trees turn from green to red, orange, and yellow, and the weather gets crisper. Autumn cheer abounds. It is also the month when one usually will need to take care of several duties around the yard, namely, the following October landscaping tips. Just remember, if you ever need a helping hand from a professional, Michael Bryan Landscapes is at your service.

Cleaning Up from Summer

After the strength of summer leaves, it leaves behind the old stalks of summer plants. One will need to clean up these dead stalks once the green has gone out of them to keep the garden beds tidy and well-ventilated. This is also the time to deadhead flowers and prune back shrubs and trees after their growing season.

Planting and Transplanting

While it’s a time of cleaning up, it’s also a time of planting and transplanting. Tis the season for planting fall-flowering species like chrysanthemums, pansies, and ornamental cabbage and planting or transplanting trees and shrubs. Plants prefer the cool, mild season of fall to establish new roots than in the extremes of summer or winter.

Caring for the Lawn

Lawn care continues in the October landscaping tips list from September. One can continue mowing as needed, and if you haven’t treated your lawn yet, now is still a great time to do so. Lawn care can entail fertilizing, aerating, seeding, and preventing weed growth.

Hardscaping & More

Landscaping involves more than just plants. Hardscaping projects are also popular in the fall, as people perform their fall cleanups and home improvements around the house after a summer of fun and beating the heat.
