Not motivated to rake? We get it, but make sure those leaves don’t smother your lawn. Let your lawn mower do the work for you. Find a machine with a side discharge and mow in stripes so that after several passes the leaves will be chopped into dime-sized pieces. These small pieces can be left on the lawn, adding nutrients just like a fertilizer.
Till your garden in the fall to prepare for cool weather crops like kale and broccoli.
The heat may be letting up, but your lawn, shrubs and trees still need at least an inch of water a week, and you’ll want to keep cutting that grass until the first hard frost. From sprinklers to hoses, nozzles and reels, we have all the watering equipment you need to keep your yard in top condition.
Ever wonder what to plant in the fall? Now is the time to think ahead to spring. If you’d like to add new shrubs or spring bulbs, fall is the perfect time to get them in the ground. Just don’t forget the gardening gloves!
Other plants may be about to go to sleep for the winter, but you can still add some color to your garden by planting fall annuals like pansies and garden mums.
