This fall would be a great time to plant out new shrubs.
I would use this time leading up to planting to get the ground ready.
A soil test is a great first step to know what your soil may or may not need.

You local country extension office can help you with a soil test.
The location and soil will determine the type of shrubs that will be successful in your yard.

I'm listing a few links for you to help you get started.
