Putting Your Garden to Bed
Get your garden ready for the cooler months ahead with our checklists of tasks to complete this fall.
This fall, ensure the grass is always greener on your side of the street. Keep your lawn green through winter simply by seeding with rye grass. Rye grass suits any climate in which a summer lawn becomes dormant. Best of all, seeding won't take more than 30 minutes.
When first few cool nights of fall arrive, mow your lawn as close as you can, then fertilize. To ensure green throughout the winter, seed warm-season lawns with annual ryegrass or any blend formulated for what's known as "overseeding". A blend of annual rye grass such as Axcella, Barverdi, or TransEze work well when added to typical warm-season lawns.
