Landscaping for Large Yards

Fall is just around the corner, and we all can feel it.

Given the mild temperatures and reduced hours of sunshine associated with the fall season, you can have a beautiful fall garden that services your kitchen’s vegetable needs. One of the essential factors determining how successful your garden will be in the fall is what you plant. You don’t want to cultivate plants that wouldn’t thrive in the season, and choosing the right plants can be quite a challenge.

Below we’ve compiled a list of plants that would thrive in the Pacific Northwest region during this fall season:

·       Cabbage

This crop thrives best in cooler seasons as high temperatures tend to kill them. When planted in the fall, your cabbage will become mature enough for harvest during the winter.

·       Kale

This is a sturdy plant, so it can thrive in many seasons, even winter. If you want a personal garden with kale for the fall season, it’s best your plant your seeds six weeks before the frost begins.

·       Brussel Sprouts

The Pacific Northwest in the fall is one of the best places you can cultivate Brussel sprouts. For best results, this plant can be planted in middle to late summer and harvested at maturity during the fall season.

·       Broccoli

Broccolis cultivated to maturity in the fall usually tastes better than those grown in other seasons. With the unpredictability of the spring season, the fall is the best season for growing Broccolis.

·       Lettuce

This is a suitable plant for the fall seasons. All kinds of lettuce can thrive during the season. Head lettuces ideally should be planted in July and its leafy counterpart through July to mid-August. But, you can still plant them now in September to grow throughout the fall season.
