The Trees of Fall

time to start planting!

The fall season is here, even if the Nevada weather is still trying to figure that out! It's getting cooler, pumpkin spice is taking over, and nature is slowly turning lush in color! Many of our trees at Moon Valley Nurseries have the stunning fall reds, purples, yellows, and oranges that we have come to love this time of year. Not only is this the best time to add some fall color to your yard but the cooler weather is an excellent time to plant (for you and your plants!).

tips for Lawn Care and Plant Care 

The weather is just starting to cool down, that means it is now time to start taking care of your yard. The hot summer may have beaten your yard up a bit, so it needs to be brought back to good health and ready for the autumn weather! October is one of the best times of the year to rebuild a landscape or start a new project (or finish the one you started last spring!). Fall is also the best time of year to plant any trees, shrubs, and other plants you’ve had your eye on to improve your yard.

The Las Vegas area is finally getting cooler days and even cooler evenings. This is a welcomed relief from the blistering summertime heat, and relief for any home owner who has been avoiding the sun for months! While we can start to enjoy being outside more and working on our yard, the soil is still warm and will hold onto the heat for a while. This makes for a perfect environment to transplant any plants or trees and get maximum root growth potential and prepping it for long term success.
