September To Do List

Posted by Charles Breslin on

Week 1-2: Garden and Landscape Assessment

  1. Inspect Plants: Evaluate the health of your plants, trees, and shrubs. Look for signs of disease, pest infestations, or nutrient deficiencies.
  2. Soil Testing: Test your soil's pH and nutrient levels. This will help you determine if any amendments are needed before planting or fertilizing.
  3. Lawn Care: Plan to aerate, overseed, and fertilize your lawn to ensure healthy growth throughout the fall and winter.

Week 3-4: Planting and Maintenance

  1. Fall Planting: Choose and plant fall-blooming flowers like mums, pansies, and asters to add vibrant color to your landscape.
  2. Mulching: Apply a layer of mulch around your plants to protect roots from temperature fluctuations and conserve moisture.
  3. Pruning: Trim dead or overgrown branches from trees and shrubs to encourage healthy growth and shape.

Week 4-5: Seasonal Preparation

  1. Winterization: Begin preparing your garden for the colder months. Trim back perennials, remove annuals, and cover delicate plants with burlap if necessary.
  2. Fall Clean-Up: Rake leaves, remove debris, and tidy up your landscape to prevent disease and pests from taking hold.
  3. Hardscape Maintenance: Inspect and clean pathways, patios, and other hardscape elements to prevent slips and falls in wet weather.

Throughout the Month: Planning and Projects

  1. Plan Ahead: Consider your landscape goals for next spring and summer. Research and gather ideas now so you're ready to start in the early months of the new year.
  2. Composting: Start a compost pile with fallen leaves and plant trimmings. Use this valuable compost to enrich your soil in the future.
  3. Garden Tools: Clean and store your gardening tools properly to extend their lifespan and have them ready for next season.
  4. Education and Inspiration: Attend gardening workshops or webinars to learn about new techniques and trends. Follow social media accounts or blogs for landscape design inspiration.
