Fall is a beautiful time of the year! While we enjoy the beautiful colors and cool temperatures we need to take care of our lawns too! Good Earth is here to help and give some helpful tips that might make fall landscaping easier for you! When temperatures start to drop the first thing we want to do is winterize. Let’s start with destroying any moss with your lawn moss herbicide, this can be bought at most stores that carry home and garden supplies. Next, we need to get a heavy duty rake to rip up any dead matter in our lawn. As a final step, distributing the right seed for your lawn will help you keep it growing and beautiful!
Next if your looking for some great fall flowers that can withstand the cold and display those fall colors, here are some good choices!

The Red Maple is a wonderful choice for fall landscaping, it can grow up to 50 to 60 ft. tall. This tree is common and can be bought at most landscaping and garden centers.
