Heuchera 'Cajun Fire'

Ahhh fall. We just love reaching for that favorite sweater and taking a walk to explore everything autumn has to offer.  With the landscape changing there are many trees, shrubs and perennials that are well worth keeping an eye out for. And fall is a great time to plant these in your own landscape.

Lawn in Fall

As the heat of summer gives way to the cooler, crisper days of fall, now is the time to switch your gardening focus from watering and dead heading to preparing your yard for fall and winter.  Whether you are reseeding, fertilizing or redoing your lawn, fall is the best time of the year.  Your lawn will respond better to all your efforts, especially in the months of September and October.
