Landscape Priorities for September: Tierra Verde Landscape

September 23, 2010 at 5:29 pm Leave a comment

This information is for all professionals who manage properties with landscapes.

1) September temperatures are changing from the summer. Irrigation schedules will need to be

adjusted to accommodate, the change in climate.   

2) Fertilize roses and shrubs for fall growth.   

3) September is a good month to plant new trees or shrubs. Fall planting helps plants to establish a

good root system in winter months for optimum health in spring.

4) Have an arborist evaluate your trees to look for any symptoms of stress. Trees may need additional

attention due to the summer heat.  

5) Apply pre-emergent weed control for winter-annual weeds that appear in lawns.

6) Take inventory of the exposed soil on slope areas in your landscape. Now is the time to plant

groundcover to save slopes from soil erosion during the rainy months ahead. 

7) Reseed bluegrass, fescue or ryegrass as needed in shady areas in late September through

October. Cool season lawns establish themselves during winter months. 

8) If you choose to plant flowering bulbs for 2011 – now is the time to plant. 

9) Protect your property. Before Santa Ana winds are here, remove all dead branches in trees

and shrubs so that falling limbs do not cause damage to buildings. Remove woody vegetation growing

too close to structures.
