It’s Time To Do Your Fall Yard Checkup

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 31 August , 2022

It’s hard to believe, but fall is nearly upon us!  As we head into autumn, expect relatively warm temperatures to remain, but very little rain to fall.  It is time to do a fall checkup to be sure you have everything you need for a healthy, happy yard throughout the fall season!

Your Fall Yard Checklist

Fall is a great time to catch up on certain jobs in your yard and garden.  Here is a quick checklist of things you can do during this time of year to make your yard stronger and more beautiful:

  • Check irrigation systems. Irrigation is very important during the dry season in San Diego, so now is the time to be sure that your watering systems are in good working order.  It may also be time to consider replacing your old, outdated sprinkler or watering system with a new one that saves water and helps the environment.  You may also want to consider changing out thirsty plants for more drought-tolerant varieties to help you use less water overall.
  • Remove dead or dying plants. Diseased or dead plants are not only an eyesore; they can also contribute to poor health in your remaining plants.  Be sure to keep an eye on plants that do not look as though they are thriving.  You may need to adjust water or other additives; it is also possible that a specific disease is harming your plants.  An expert in plant management can help you decide what to do.
  • Check for insect infestations. Some insects thrive in the dry, cool months of autumn, so be sure to watch for insects on or around your plants.  There are many organic, non-toxic ways of dealing with insect pests; your yard maintenance expert can help you decide which method is best.
  • Check walkways and patios for damage. If you have broken or cracked walkways, patios, or other hardscape elements, now is the time to address the problem.  Not only do broken walkways and patios look bad, but they can actually be dangerous for you or other visitors to your property.  Be sure to address these types of problems as soon as possible to keep everyone safe.
  • Consider adding new items to your yard. Have you been thinking about adding a fire pit to your yard to enjoy those cool evenings outside?  Perhaps you have been considering a new water feature or creating a new planting bed.  Fall is a great time to take on those projects that will add beauty to your yard and value to your home!

    I must say that Juniper Landscape Company exceeded my expectations, completing the job in a timely fashion and for a fair price which we negotiated ahead of time, and which did not change even though there were difficulties with the terrain around my home in Stonebridge Estates (Scripps Ranch). Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
