It is widely believed that being in the right place, at the right time can lead to better results in life and business. That is true in the landscaping business, as well. Timing is everything. There are certain tasks or lawn maintenance that need done during certain times of the year.
Properly timed treatment will have your landscape reaping the benefits. Doing them at the wrong time could be a waste of energy or worse. It could actually harm your landscape.
Not everyone has a green thumb. That should not prevent us from having vibrant landscaping year round. It a simple measure of doing right thing at the right time. At DiSabatino Landscaping of Delaware, we help keep our customer’s lawn and garden looking its best by following best practices.

The soaring temperatures of summer mixed with plenty of humidity make the idea of fall foliage and plantings seem a long way off. Yet, there are those that prefer the bold strokes of red, yellow and purple that autumn brings. For them, now is the time to start planning for the fall season.
Planting for multiple seasons cannot only make your landscaping a year round hit, it serves as important food sources for wildlife populations, such as hummingbirds, insects, butterflies and bee colonies. Depending on the temperatures, these populations can peak in the fall and greatly enjoy the later flowers of fall asters, salvia, and helenium .
Gardens that peak in the fall often can withstand dry conditions and create an oasis in your yard that looks good even in the worst weather. Shortening days and crisp nights can create perfect conditions for jewel like fall blooms such as Colchicum bulbs (a.k.a. autumn crocus), Leadwort, Smoke Tree, Fothergilla.
