November is San Diego’s Best Gardening Month!

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 2 November , 2022

In most of the country, November is cold, snowy, and downright hostile to yard work and gardening.  In beautiful San Diego, however, it is our favorite month to be outdoors!  Fall and winter are great times for many gardening chores, including those that may not be as easy during the rest of the year.  With the help of professionals, you can have your yard looking wonderful in time for the holidays!

November Yard Tasks

There are several important yards and garden tasks that are easy to complete in November and often are better done at this time of year than others.  These include:

  • Tree trimming and pruning. For trees with late summer blooming or growth, late fall is often the perfect time for trimming and pruning.  A professional should always be involved in this process, as it is easy to harm a tree with improper cutting.  If you have your trees and shrubs trimmed now, you will find that by spring you will see beautiful, healthy new growth.
  • Think about erosion. Fall is a great time to address erosion issues by terracing or planting quick-growing ground cover in vulnerable areas.  Because you will be watering less, erosion mitigation has a better chance to take hold during this time of year.  Addressing these issues now can save you hours of heartache and lots of money in the spring.
  • Install new plants. In our mild climate, new plants take hold well in the cool, moist environment of November.  Additionally, many local nurseries will receive large shipments of new plants during this time.  This may be the best time of year to put in new bedding or other plants; talk to your yard care professional about options and get to planting! 
  • Save water. November is a great time to turn back your irrigation, as we often see rain during the month.  Think about ways you can stretch your water budget and take advantage of rainfall to boost your irrigation or consider substituting drought-hardy plants for your thirsty ones.
  • Clean up dead and dying plants. This is also a great time to clean out dead undergrowth and, ultimately, improve the health of your beds and plants.  Your yard care professional will be happy to talk to you about areas that need cleaning out and make a plan to address them quickly so that you are ready for new spring growth.
  • Enjoy your space. Fall is the perfect time for sipping a hot drink by a roaring fire.  Fortunately, our mild climate allows us to do this outdoors as well!  Now is the time to think about installing that fire feature so that you and your family can enjoy your outdoor space year-round.

    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
