Plan Ahead for Fall Landscaping

While we're still in the hot Summer season, when it comes to landscaping maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks, it's important to think about the upcoming season ahead: Fall. There are several things that will need to be done to prep your landscaping this fall for winter and spring that you can begin scheduling for now. Paradise Landscaping offers a list of those items here:


Fertilize Lawn for Next Spring
Fall is a great time to determine pH and nutrients in your soil. Healthy soil plays such an important part in the success of your landscape. Schedule to have a professional landscaper test your soil, aerate and seed your lawn to prepare for Spring, especially the areas that have been overly used throughout the summer and are struggling.

Schedule Routine Leaf Removal
As the season starts to change, the trees in your lawn will begin losing their leaves. Those leaves will undoubtedly cover your lawn. Not only are they an eyesore compared to your well-maintained landscaping, but leaving them unmanaged can have an unhealthy effect on your lawn. If the leaves are covering your lawn and preventing light from getting to the soil, this could kill the grass, and create a breeding ground for fungal diseases and harmful pests. Make sure to schedule routine leaf removal services now to ensure you're covered for this fall.

Pool Maintenance and Winterization
The temperatures will be getting cooler before we know it, meaning you won't be spending as much time cooling off in the pool. Besides needing someone to routinely clean the falling leaves out of your pool, now is a good time to reach out to an expert pool maintenance company at the Lake of the Ozarks to schedule an appointment to close and winterize your pool for the season. By having a professional pool expert winterize your pool instead of doing it yourself, you'll avoid any potential damage to your pool or equipment from incorrectly winterizing it.

Plant Fall Trees, Shrubs, Perennials, and Plants
Some landscaping plants germinate better in the cooler months of fall. Knowing which plants to incorporate into your landscaping in the fall season will keep your lawn looking great throughout even the cool season. The experts at Paradise Landscaping specialize in horticulture, so we can help you choose visually pleasing plants to put into your landscaping that will thrive this fall.

Winterize the Irrigation System
While it's still important to continue to water your lawn through the fall, you'll likely not need to do so nearly as often. If you have an irrigation system, this makes changing your watering schedule much easier. It also means that you need to contact your landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks to determine when they need to come out to winterize your irrigation system. Not having your irrigation system properly winterized can cause some very expensive maintenance issues when the temperatures drop to a freezing point.

By scheduling these tasks now with the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks, you'll guarantee a spot in our books for the busy upcoming fall season. Remember that maintaining your landscaping even in the fall and winter months is essential to keep your lawn looking it's best all year round.
