Landscaping in the Fall

How to Make the Best of Calgary’s Short Gardening Season

What a fabulous summer we’ve had here in Calgary!  We had weeks of wonderful hot, sunny days which more than made up for that long, wet spring.

Now that the leaves are turning and the evenings are getting cool, it definitely feels as though Fall is here.  So, if you didn’t get your landscaping done already you may be wondering whether it’s just best to wait until next year.

Fall is a Great Time For Landscaping

Before you close the doors and dismiss the garden for the season, here are some great reasons why you should consider getting your landscaping completed before the onset of winter:

  • Calgary Springs are not always landscaping friendly! Those long, wet springs can make for slow work and frequent delays.
  • Get a Jump on the Growing Season. Our growing season is short enough, and when you don’t plant until the spring or summer you can’t expect much growth that year.  When you get your plants in before Winter, that gives them a bit of a head start and you’ll enjoy the summer season with plants that are more established and less needy.
  • Enjoy the Chinooks. When it suddenly goes up to +15 in February, it’s great to be able to get outside for some much needed fresh air.
  • Beat the Rush. Everyone wants their landscaping done in the Spring – if yours is already in you’ll be ready to head outside and enjoy the whole season.
