At Gardens of Babylon Landscapes, we strongly believe in leaving the weeds for the bees, using natural methods of plant control, and encouraging pollinator growth! We refrain from using any products containing neonicotinoids and we create landscapes that bloom throughout the season to allow for an ample food source for our local pollinators.
Dormancy Not Death!
As one of Nashville’s top landscaping companies, our professional horticulturists know that plants in Nashville experience dormancy during cold weather—not death! Therefore, planting a perennial bed in your landscape in fall means that your plants will have a healthy environment to establish before they go dormant in winter.
Cooler temperatures means more soil moisture
The heat of summer creates a constant cycle of water evaporation, and can cause a lot of unnecessary plant stress. That’s why planting in the fall is the optimum time to plant. Watering plants in the spring and summer can be a tedious task, but in fall, landscapes in Nashville retain more moisture than they do in the sweltering summer sun.
Fall Landscaping Discounts!
We know landscaping services can be an investment, so that’s why we want our clients to take advantage of the fall landscaping discounts we offer throughout the fall and winter seasons. After the spring and summer landscaping rush in Nashville, fall begins to quiet down. We offer discounts in fall for many of our new and existing clientele and especially around the holidays.

Planting in Fall Gives Spring a Jump-Start
No better time than fall to get those roots established before spring. Planting in fall when the soil is still warm from summer allows roots to establish and build a better chance of success for next year’s drought and heat.
Earlier Spring Flowers Means More Pollinators!
Planting in the fall means earlier flowers that serve as vital food sources for crucial pollinators, and our landscape company values the power of beneficial insects and how crucial they are to our natural ecology. Starting pollinator plants in the fall ensures success for butterflies and bees in March and April.
These last few weeks of summer, we can let our land and bodies rest. But we can also prepare for fall, which starts Sept. 22. Scattered thunderstorms should refresh our yards soon. The following ideas can make our Middle Tennessee landscapes more natural and sustainable:
Every now and then I'm asked for landscape design tips. I came across an article in Better Homes and Gardens and thought it worth sharing. For those starting out in this wide world of exterior artistry...welcome to the rest of your life. Once this bug bites you, it usually doesn't let go, at least for not for awhile anyways. It can be a blessing, however, since instead of itching and swelling, it can cause your property value to increase. Imagine that. Plus, if you do some of the landscaping yourself, you'll be burning calories, reducing stress, and coming home to a more beautiful setting. Not too bad eh?
