The temperature in the Maryland area has been dropping, leaving us with a nice cool breeze and one thing on our minds: fall. While some of us will miss summer, there’s a lot to look forward to in the fall. Not only do we get a break from the summer humidity, but it’s a perfect time to get some landscaping work done—and to fully enjoy your landscape without the heat bogging you down!
