FOR FALL, PREPARE YOUR OWN LANDSCAPE
The current landscape can be analyzed in the fall to see what needs replacing or updating. The monsoon season is over, and hopefully, The Sun temperature will last every year. This time of year in Phoenix is perfect for enjoying the outdoors and for establishing new plants in your yard. When temperatures begin to drop in November, plant development will be slowed down.
You can review your landscaping in the fall and decide where you want to replace plants or make changes.
Now that the monsoon season is over, and we can finally enjoy the lovely autumn weather in the Valley of the Sun, it's time to take advantage of it. When it comes to outdoor living , the fall season is perfect for setting up new plantings in your yard. When temperatures begin to drop in November, plant development will be slowed down. This perfect growing season will last until at least November.
Your environment will be more aesthetically appealing if it has a diversity of colours and textures. Fall is a great time to add some splashes of colour to your landscaping. In order to add new plants to your yard, you must first determine what you already have, what you will remove, and where you would like to add new plants. Obviously, everything that is dead or severely injured by the extreme heat of summer or the thrashing wind of monsoon season will be removed. By removing them first, you'll have a clearer idea of how much room you have to fill.
Sketching the new barren region with notes designating the other plants can be beneficial if you're not sure what you want to put there. A copy of this design can be kept on hand while browsing the web or visiting your local nursery to see what's available. Consider noting the blooming season and colors of the existing plants so you may extend the blooming season and develop a complementary color scheme for the room. So that your new plants can thrive year-round, pay attention to how much sun they get during the summer.
It is possible to destroy a microclimate in your yard by removing a large shade tree. This can cause significant stress to plants in the surrounding region.
The quantity of shade that was provided by a huge plant or tree in your yard should be carefully considered when removing it. Large shade trees can have a negative impact on any plants that were previously shadowed. Because of this, their surroundings has changed dramatically. It's possible that the plants that will now be living in the shade will suffer if you decide to plant a tree in a full sun area. You may discover more about your plants' demands by doing a fast internet search.
Trim your plants in the early fall if you want to keep them in a more formal shape over the winter.
A final round of trimming and shaping before the cold weather sets in is ideal in the early fall. It is possible to remove long, leggy branches and overgrowth without putting the plants under undue stress. Be careful, however, not to remove too much of the outer growth at the expense of the inside growth. The newly exposed central area of the plants could be damaged by the upcoming cold weather. Once the cold weather approaches, resist the urge to cut off frost damage. The plant's undamaged parts will benefit from that dead material's insulation and protection, so don't remove it.
Schedules for watering in the summer should continue until the daily high temperatures are below 100 degrees and the evenings are significantly cooler than they are today. As opposed to cutting back on each zone's run duration, cut back on how many days the irrigation system works per week. As a result, less frequent watering will result in deeper, more significant hydration and foster deeper root growth.
