Preparing for Autumn: 8 Companies to Reach Out to in Huntsville

Preparing for Autumn: 8 Companies to Reach Out to in Huntsville

It is officially September, which to many people means the start of the fall season. It means pumpkins, sweaters, boots, Halloween, Thanksgiving, warm drinks, football, and back to school. At least it is supposed to, it might still be a little too warm for that. However, for many of us, it also means raking leaves, closing pools, and a lot of yard work that was neglected over the summer. Even though we don’t get the worst fall season, it still has some downsides – namely the wind and rain.

Your time with your family is already rather limited during autumn, so why waste time doing all of that when you could be watching “It’s a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” or carving pumpkins with your family? These companies will help you to make your seasons a little less stressful and a little more fun:

Taking care of your landscaping isn’t only a summer job. During the fall months, there is a lot that you can do to get yourself more in the mood for fall. Valley Landscaping is a company that will help you create the perfect fall yard so that you have a beautiful backdrop for Homecoming photos, Thanksgiving football, and Halloween night. They plan each and every plant and shrub so that everything looks the way you want it to.

Fall is also a great time to start planning out spring’s garden. You might want to get a head start on your ideas so that you can have time to get the right plants and accessories, change your yard around, and take advantage of the weather. This company has a great reputation for doing some absolutely gorgeous things to yards, and starting in the fall will give them ample time.

pumpkins to scatter around. This farm is a great option for families and couples who are looking for an activity to get them in the autumnal spirit. In addition to the pumpkin patch, they also have a pedal cart track, jumping pillows, hay rides, a cotton jump, a hay bale maze, corn cribs, farm animals, and a playground.

You could easily spend all day here making memories and taking photos. While most people associate the farm with school trips, there is truly something for everyone to do and enjoy. They make their own sweets and have a wide selection of teas for those who need to get their pumpkin food fill.

 

3. Huntsville Hardscapes

Let’s be honest for a minute: while having our children home for the summer is great, they tend to do a number on our yards. Fall is a great time to hire a hardscaper that will fix up the cracked cement, the leaning wall, or those steps before the bad weather starts and you are put in danger.

Or maybe you just want to get something nice done to your yard so that next summer you can enjoy it more – either way.

Huntsville Hardscapes will help with your driveway, walkways, or even walls to get them looking great again. If you don’t have anything, they can help with installation as well. Huntsville Hardscapes is a great option because they will do the work for you or they will sell you the supplies so that you can do the work yourself.

4. Brownsferry Mercantile

Fall is a great time to take the health of your trees and gardens into consideration. While there are a million things

you could do to prepare for the colder weather, there is one big thing you can do if you just don’t have the time: mulch. Mulch helps to keep your ground moist so that nutrients can get to the roots of your greenery. It also just tends to make everything look better.

One of the best places to go in Huntsville for mulch is Brownsferry Mercantile. They sell their mulch by the cubic yard so you can buy at little or as much as you need. They will also bring the mulch to your commercial or residential location. If you are new to the mulching business, they can help determine how much you will need and even help you load it into your truck.

5. Huntsville Hardwear

The staff is extremely knowledgeable and will be able to help you with any of your fall hardware needs. Give yourself some time to look around and have a chat. Even better, talk to them about some of the projects you’d like to complete while the weather isn’t so warm.

If you need something special, Huntsville Hardwear will also complete custom orders for you.

see the signs during the fall months. If you have a tree that is losing leaves a much quicker rate than other trees or you have a tree that just doesn’t look good, it is worth getting them looked at. Our team at All Star Tree Service will look over your trees and check if they are healthy.

If your trees are healthy, we can also deliver firewood. Firewood makes those fall nights just a little cozier and more fun. Give us a call today to set up your fall tree health inspections or to get a firewood delivery.
