Now I think we can all agree that it has been a long, hot summer this year; with that unexpected 3 weeks of drought rolling in at the end of September. But luckily for us, it appears as though fall is finally starting to grace us with her much-appreciated presence.
With all the incredible colors coming in and the leaves starting to rustle and fall, now is the time to start thinking of the best ways to utilize and appreciate your great outdoor area! Now weather we’re talking about roasting marshmallows over a fire pit with your family on a warm fall evening while listening to the cicadas call or simply showing off your gorgeous garden and making the whole neighborhood jealous is up to you to decide.
One thing you may not know is that the chillier weather does not necessarily mean that all flowers are going to lay dormant, there is actually a long list of blooms that thrive in the fall. Such as Chinese bellflowers, celosia, goldenrod, iberis, chrysanthemums, and pansies just to name a few. Not just flowers though, turfgrass, spring-blooming bulbs, cool-season vegetables, perennials, trees, and shrubs can all be effectively planted in the fall. Because the soil is still warm from summer it allows the roots to grow at a healthy rate until the soil freezes over in the winter.
