Whenever autumn does arrive here in Northeastern Pennsylvania, you may be wondering what will happen to your garden. Do you really have to say goodbye for another year? But it’s too soon!
Don’t worry. We got a few tips you can follow to keep that garden looking gorgeous through the autumn months.
Gardening Tips for the Autumn
Choose Your Flowers Right
Autumn is a great season to start planting seeds, so besides choosing the kind of flowers your garden will need for this season, perhaps it’s also a good idea to think how do you want your garden to look like over spring. In the meantime, consider using roses, chrysanthemums (which look great in their pots), and purple heathers with orange and red foliage. This selection goes great with the season because of their colors and they also endure harsh weather.
Keep That Mulch Coming
Your plants will love you for pilling up mulch on them! Plus, you can use the leaves that are now all over your backyard while taking advantage of the many colors they have. Nourish them from the free mulch that you can get. This will not only provide an amazing autumn-like appearance to your garden but will also prevent insects and weeds from hiding in the residues of the autumn.
Landscaping experts suggest that, if you want to use your natural mulch on your plants, then you should try to keep it between 2 or 3 inches thick. This should keep your soil healthy and your garden beautiful.
Let the Lights Glow
Bring a pleasant glow this season by adding a little lighting to your outdoor spaces. One great idea you can try is to string tea lights through the branches of a tree. The lights will even accentuate the beautiful fall foliage.
