Forget the pumpkin spice! We are excited about fall planting season. Driving around Suwanee, Milton, Johns Creek, Duluth, Alpharetta, and the rest of North Atlanta, landscapers are hard at work putting in fall color. With deep purples, golden yellows, and burnt oranges, the new color exudes the fall season despite the summer-like weather we still get to enjoy. From mums to pansies and violets, now is the time to swap out summer blooms for fall and winter annuals. But don’t forget to keep those new blooms watered, summer-like heat and dryness can leave those new blooms withered by Halloween.
Fall Landscape Irrigation Maintenance
Fall landscapes need to be irrigated just as much as summer. In Atlanta, we get to enjoy a warm fall for months longer than much of the country. We enjoy eighty degree days and moderate nights well into October and November. This weather can wreak havoc on fall blooms that prefer cooler temperatures. While the days are shorter, and the sun is not quite so hot, these blooms still need the proper amount of water to keep them thriving until the next season’s annuals are ready to plant.
Given the summer was rainy and wet, you may not have paid close attention to the effectiveness of your irrigation system. Is it working efficiently? Are there broken sprinkler heads? Are there line leaks? Is your drip irrigation system clogged or somehow obstructed? With the dry weather upon us, now is the time for the sprinkler system maintenance you’ve put off all summer. Your investment in fall planting is worth protecting with proper fall annual irrigation. A week or two without proper water can leave your newly planted mums and violas needing to be replaced well before spring planting season.
