Autumn is the perfect time to start planning and planting spring bulbs, perennials and more before winter sets in. The cooler temperatures are easier on both plants and gardeners, but the soil is still warm enough to allow roots to grow until the ground freezes. Pests and disease problems also fade away in the fall. Plus, the late season is often bargain time at garden centers that are trying to sell the last of their inventory before winter.

And don’t forget your lawn; cool-season turfgrass can be seeded this time of year, too. Get those pansies, violas, trees and shrubs in the ground right now, and they’ll reward you with gorgeous color in spring.

And if you want to build a garden room to house your plants and flowers, you may consider reaching out to professionals and start looking online by searching for companies that build garden buildings near me.

You may also consider seeking assistance from professionals from sites like if you want to construct a beautiful garden cabin in your home.


When you’re looking to add to your collection of perennials, divide and replant existing perennials. Keep any fall-planted perennials well watered until the ground freezes to encourage them to grow new, healthy roots before they go dormant for the winter. Protect them from frost heaving with a blanket of shredded leaves or other mulch, layered about 3 inches thick around them.

Professional landscapers have the ability to transform your lawn, hire these landscape designers in Danville for your landscaping needs.
