Fall Landscaping Tips from Burroughs

Our cooler autumn weather has officially began, how does this impact our Texas Hill Country landscaping?

Fall is the perfect time to try some new things in your yard. Grab a pencil and pad, and take a walk around your outdoor space. Envision the changes you would like to see. What fall colors do you like?  Look online for plants and trees that you fancy. Burroughs Landscaping can make it all happen! The knowledgeable team will guide you in deciding proper spacing to plant the foliage you choose. There are many beautiful options that are natural to our area. This friendly team will group plants together with the same water and sunlight needs, causing them to thrive together.

Plants such as Texas sage, rosemary, hummingbird bush, Pink Skullcap, Gregs Salvia, Turks Cap and lantanas are all fairly deer resistant and only require small amounts of water. 

Consider having trees planted in the fall. These months are the best time to plant in the Kerrville and San Antonio area, as trees concentrate on root growth and take nutrients from the soil. They will be established for spring's full, leafy, above-ground growth.

Fall is a great time to be in the habit of mulching. Burroughs Landscaping will effectively use mulch that provides the natural nutrients your plants will enjoy through the winter months. Mulch reduces the need to fertilize, helps the soil retain water, reduces weed growth, and protects plant's root systems during cold winter months.

The change of seasons is a great time to have your irrigation systems checked, confirming they are set to run the correct amount of time and are covering the needed areas. Now is the time to decrease the frequency of watering and perhaps increase the time you water your plants.

Burroughs Landscaping will enjoy meeting with you and combining your wishes and dreams with their experience to create your perfect outdoor living area for the season. 

As a nice finishing touch, perhaps adding a little color and some of your own personality, using accent pots and other yard decor. Then, sit back and enjoy your own private retreat with a cup of hot chocolate and your favorite family and friends. Happy Fall Ya'll!!
