Today is the Autumnal Equinox and we are officially entering fall. With the onset of fall, our priorities are changing and we are preparing for fall activities, including leaf removal, pansy plantings, and fall wet weather mowing. The change in seasons keep us busy and hopefully the weather stays cool but does not complicate our early fall activities.
We began planting pansies this past week as the rain and cooler weather is taking it's toll on summer flowers. Our goal is to get all pansies planted by the end of October.
As the weather cools, the lawns will slow their growth and we will move toward a bi-weekly mowing schedule in October.
Before the leaves begin to fall, our focus is to get as much pruning complete prior to winter. This is our major focus and what we use the extra time we get from the bi-weekly mowing.
As we get to the end of October, leaves will be our sole focus. We are preparing now to ensure we can collect leaves as quickly as possible.
