Fall Tips

  • Plan for Winter Interest. Use shrubs that have beutiful fall leaves or berries. Winterberry for long lasting eye popping berries or Chokeberry for vibrant leaf color

  • Lawn Care. A second application of Soil Activator will help to soften soil so it's easier to remove thatch. Mid-September is the best time to overseed your lawn.

  • Plants! September is the best time to plant Peonies and iris. Dig and divide perennials. Plant garlic bulbs in late September.
