What do you do in landscaping in the fall?

Landscaping in autumn Plants, shrubs% 26 trees. Most landscape renovations involve adding new trees, shrubs and plants of all kinds. Like plants, shrubs, and trees, fall is also a good time to maintain, renew, or replace grass. Garden work doesn't end with summer.

When spring comes, you'll be glad you continued with fall landscaping. Once the soil has been analyzed, and the deficiencies have been corrected, it's time to aerate and plant the parts that are stressed by the summer sun or trampled by foot traffic. It depends on the condition of the turf, but typically about three pounds are needed for every 1,000 square feet of grass, says Josh Kane, president of Kane Landscapes in Northern Virginia. The leaves in your garden form a fine, no-cost mulch that will protect your plants during the winter.

You'll need to shred the leaves to encourage decay before using them.
