Four Reasons to Plant New Trees or Shrubs this Fall

Published on: December 3, 2015

Is your yard lacking dimension or privacy? Maybe you need to add some beautiful trees or shrubs to your property. Fall is the perfect time to add these larger plants that can add so much depth and function to your landscape design. Here are four excellent reasons to use this fall to bring in these additions.

  1. Warm soil. Fall is a great time to plant trees and shrubs because the soil is still warm and inviting to new roots. The temperature is perfect, promoting quick root growth for optimal planting. There is still enough time before winter for those roots to become established to handle the cold snaps.
  2. Adding dimension. Trees and shrubs add dimension to your landscaping that ground plants cannot offer. Plus, they attract beautiful birds and butterflies that add to your outdoor scenery.
  3. Plenty of good planting days. Unlike spring where the weather is hit or miss, fall usually offers plenty of great days for planting. There is no need to try a schedule planting times around spring showers and deal with the cold, muddy ground.
  4. More privacy. Trees and shrubs are Mother Nature’s blinds, helping give you and your family a little more privacy without needing to erect a fence. If privacy is one of your goals, talk to your landscaper about which trees and shrubs are best for coverage in your region.

Don’t put off adding trees or shrubs to your yard any longer. Call your local landscaping company to schedule a tree or shrub planting for this fall. By next summer they will look great and you can begin reaping the benefits of these beautiful additions to your yard.
