September is a good time to starting thinking about your winter landscape. It might seem a little premature, especially because some days the temperature is still in the 90s. But with a slew of holidays and holiday-related commitments ahead, you might not have another opportunity.
Here’s what to consider:
- The lawn. What’s the status of your lawn? Are there sections that are overrun with weeds? Is it looking a little yellow? It might be time for selective weed control and fertilizer.
- Flower beds. Do your flower beds need a little sprucing up? Now’s a great time for it. By planting annuals that do better in cooler temperatures, you can have colorful flowerbeds from now to New Year’s Day.
- Tree and shrubs. Are your trees and shrubs starting to look out of control? Now’s the time to trim overhanging limbs and cut back branches that are blocking paths, walkways, and seating areas. And don’t forget anything that looks dead or diseased.
The fall season in Florida is so subtle, it’s easy to overlook it. But it is the perfect time to transition your landscaping. And SFM Landscape is committed to providing all the information and support you need to make the conversion.
