When Is the BEST Time to Landscape Your Yard?

At Molzon’s we get a bunch of questions daily. Everything from - “What are the best plants to put in my yard?” to “How do I keep critters away from my beloved plants?” However, one of the top questions we are asked is - “When is the best time to landscape my yard?”


Many people get that “gardening bug” to start a garden or to clean up their existing one in the springtime. The birds are chirping, bees are buzzing, weather is finally warm, the sun is shining, it's not too hot or too cold; so it seems like the PERFECT time right? Wrong. While spring is nice, the unexpected heat waves of summer are looming around the corner. And let's not even go into the excessive rain spells or that random freezing cold day that tends to occur and make us appreciate spring that much more. If you wait until summer you are battling those heat waves that will put excessive stress on your poor plants. So to answer the question, the best time to start your landscaping is actually in the fall.


Between the cooler temperatures and the minimal humidity, it gives your plants time to establish a strong root system to survive. Aside from timing, you also need to know which plants will do best in your yard. That will make the biggest difference between your neighbors having curb appeal envy versus looking at a garden filled with dead plants. Luckily, that is where Molzon’s can help! We can help design the perfect landscape for your yard that will be sure to turn some heads as they walk by your house. With Fall just around the corner, don’t hesitate. Call Molzon’s to discuss your landscaping vision today. Or if you have any questions about your existing landscape feel free to stop by or give us a call. We are always happy to help!!
