Fall is great time of year to Plant Vegetables, Perennials, Trees and Shrubs


 Fall is an exciting time of year, as it signals significant change in our lives. From the leaves turning color to the preparation for Halloween, there are many things to enjoy about this season. While this may seem like a great time to change the décor in your home to match the new tones, you may be neglecting the area of your home that needs it the most.

Brisk weather gives us all the reason to stay inside, cuddled up with some hot cocoa, so it makes sense that we tend to overlook the upkeep of our landscape. The land that you own needs to be maintained as thoroughly as the foundation of your home, and special care needs to be taken in the colder months.

Finishing Touch Landscape specializes in designing your garden, taking care to arrange your fall-blooming plants in a way that will maximize growth. Fall is actually a great time of year to plant vegetables, perennials, trees and shrubs. Consider which colors you would like to feature, and think of the possibilities that we can create.

Here are some plants that fair better in the fall:


  • Viburnum Opulus Compactum: For a splash of color that will double as holiday decoration, try this plant for a pop of red. This plant will last through the winter months.

  • Beautyberry: For an elegant tapestry to your perennials, try this splash of purple or white. The berries make a beautiful addition to a vase of flowers, or alone for an understated look.

  • Michaelmas Daisy: This delicate flower produces pink, blue, purple and white blossoms, escalating the natural beauty of your landscape design

  • Chelone (Turtle head): This low-maintenance plant will produce a beautiful bloom of red, pink or white.
