Now is a great time to get the landscaping done !
August and September are good times to consider getting the hard landscaping done. There is enough time to get the construction work completed and still have time to plant bulbs for next spring, and some late blooming flowers and plants as well as giving new lawns an opportunity to bed down and take root before the winter chill sets in.

August in Bloom
August can frequently be the hottest month of the year so it's important to water frequently. Try using grey water where possible.
Things like Sunflowers, Dahlias, Pinks and Zinnias should be at their peak but looking ahead to winter and next spring now, will pay dividends.
Winter flowering varieties of pansy plants can be quite hardy and give a flush of colour in late autumn, through to early winter. This is also the time to be thinking about planting next springs bulbs.
Some bulbs such as Colchicum, Daffodils and Madonna lilie can be planted now. Others along with Crocus and Hyacinths should be in the ground by the end of September and Tulips in November.
