Fall is in full swing in Pullman Washington and the leaves are putting out their final show before tucking in for their long winter's nap.
Now is great time to get a head start on getting your yard ready for the Spring, or spruced up for the Fall and Winter selling season.
Landscaping plants are traditionally drastically marked down. Both shrubs and trees get the fall growing season to get established before putting on their spring show.
Fall is also a great time to tuck some bulbs in for that early spring season. Here in Pullman Washington, we traditionally have cold springs. Often our temps drop below freezing. Spring bulbs putout a show that is hard to beat. And don't forget to tuck a few left over bulbs in some of your now vacant pots for a great show of color for a fraction of the cost!
And don't forget your lawn. Fall is the best time to get your yard in shape. When raking up the leaves, consider thatching your yard and giving it a dose of winter fertilizer so it can put down strong roots over the winter months.
Pruning roses, shrubs and trees is also a great way to get your yard looking tidy over the winter. With foliage gone, it is a time for the branches to take center show, especially with a dusting of snow. And you will thank yourself come Spring!
