9 Late-Summer Garden Ideas
With summer drawing to a close, now is the best time to plan your autumn vegetable and flower gardens.
Tip No. 2: Prepare your lawn for the cooler days and nights ahead.
Now is an excellent time to establish fescue, perennial ryegrass, and bluegrass. If you are sowing the seeds for a new lawn, use a lower nitrogen, higher phosphorus fertilizer, such as 18-24-10. If you have an established lawn, go with a higher nitrogen formula like 31-2-4.
