Fall Planting vs Spring Planting? Read This!

Vancouver’s Fall Season Means Time to Get Planting! Here’s Why…

The arrival of Fall means routine landscaping work on your property needs to change up a little. Why? Because Fall is an awesome time to establish some planting you’ll then be able to enjoy for months to come in the following year.

We asked our commercial landscaping experts for five reasons why Fall planting is a great investment for properties in Vancouver.

Read on to find simple reasons why a little time spent now will help create a landscape to savour in 2023…

Fall Planting: What Makes It An Essential?

Our commercial landscaping specialists LOVE Fall planting because plants love Fall planting!

Plus, the mild climate in October, November and December will be much better suited to planting compared to Vancouver’s Spring season.

There are more great reasons you’ll want to keep in mind too:

• 1, Less Stress for New Plants

Cooler weather is simply a better environment for new root systems, meaning they can establish themselves with less temperature-related stress and in good time for next summer.

Tip: Remember that root systems will start to grow in Spring once the ground thaws, long before the soil can be worked by human hands and before any new planting is carried out.

• 2, Fall Planting Means Two Seasons for Plants to Establish 

Planting during October, November or December in Vancouver means two full seasons for the plants to become established.

Tip: Taking the time to carry out planting in Fall means plants will be more capable of withstanding drought later down the line.

• 3, Lower Evaporation 

The cooler weather will help eliminate evaporation PLUS shorter days mean photosynthesis slows down.

Tip: Plans planted in Fall need less water for these reasons.

• 4, Rainfall is Your Friend! 

When it comes to creating a beautiful landscape, the plentiful rainfall in October, November and December is awesome news for plants and gives the opportunity to become established without irrigation.

Tip: It’s worth reaping the golden rule! Soil and top growth will retain moisture better in cooler temperatures.

• 5, Plant Prices May Be Reduced in Fall

 Compared to planting in the Spring, you may find that your plants are less expensive.

Tip: Bear in mind that the selection of plants can often be reduced too, however the benefits still outweigh this disadvantage in most cases.
