Fall is the Best Time to Plant Trees & Shrubs! October Gardening Tips

Posted on September, 29

Now that fall is here, and our weather is starting to cool down a bit, we can all enjoy spending time outside gardening and getting our landscapes looking pretty! If you want to add more trees and shrubs to improve your home’s curb appeal, fall is the best time to plant, so their root systems have several months to get established before next summer’s heat arrives! A strong, healthy root system will allow your trees and shrubs to resist that summertime heat better, and planting in cooler temperatures will minimize the stress that may occur when trees are transported and planted.

See our October Gardening Tips for things you can do in your yard this month including feeding your lawn and landscape with Covington’s brand fertilizers which have been specially formulated for our Texas soil.  Happy Gardening!
