Late Fall 2017 Important Drought Alert

Fall 2017 Rain Shortage Tough On Landscape Plants

You know that watering is a vital part of keeping your landscape healthy in the hot summer months, but did you know why it’s also very important in the fall? During the first 3 quarters of this year we have had above-average rainfall conditions. The months of March, April, June and July the greater Philadelphia area has averaged approximately 5″ over normal rainfall.

As we have moved into the fall months, the script has been flipped. This abrupt drop in rainfall can have a drastic effect on the health of your plants both in the short term and over the long haul. At a minimum, plants that are stressed in the fall will be slower to respond with new growth in the spring.

Look for these at-risk plants on your property.

Plants that are stressed due to lack of water in the fall will not only drop foliage prematurely, but are likely to suffer from crown dieback in the spring, and be more susceptible to insects and disease the following year.

Be Wise - Fertilize!

Fall fertilization is also key for plant care during drought-like conditions. Our experts will evaluate your plantings and utilize a wide range of products from all-organic to quick-acting remedies. Avoid costly, time-consuming rejuvenation projects later by stabilizing your plants now.

Protect your landscape investment!

Let us ensure your plants havea great-looking fall

and a safer winter through timely supplemental watering

and a thoughtfully-designed fertilization program.
