Green Manures? I Don’t “Fallow”…

Often as the growing season slows and we have been enjoying the fruits of our labor we forget to give back to the garden. We pull plants when they stop producing and leave the garden untouched until it is time for the fall yard cleanup. We rake leaves, pickup sticks and maybe till some leaves and compost into the garden to “put it to bed”. But what about that period of time between when you pulled your plants and you get to the traditional fall work?

Is your Lawn Gone for Good?

This summer it seems as though much of our once green grass has turned brown. The good news is many grasses will go dormant in the late summer if not watered frequently enough. The not-so-good news is that there is a possibility your grass is dying and you may need to re-plant this coming fall. Below we highlight ways to determine whether your grass is dead or just dormant, as well as tips on caring for your grass in extreme heat.

Rain, Rain, Don’t Go Away!

Those who find themselves becoming drenched in the spring and summer months, or are having problems with standing water and flooding, should explore the idea of creating a rain garden.
