Fall Gardening

It is that time of year to get your lawn ready for winter so it comes to life next spring.  This the time to do that last fertilization.  Adjust the mower to lower level and keep cutting as long as grass is growing.  Remove the grass clippings at this time of year to prevent insects and disease from overwintering.  Keep lawn free of leaves and debris.  If you need to reseed some areas. Ow would be a good time - mix one part seed to two parts topsoil and rake into existing grass.

i am reading that a great environmentally aware grass seed is RTF water saver grass seed - distributed by RTF in Mississauga.   This grass has long roots develop while searching for water so therefore, needs less watering.

Most homeowners don't realize that if you get your plants I to the ground before the frost hits they will overwinter just fine and now is the time to buy as huge discounts are available.  A good time to start a new garden for next year.  Remember landscaping gives the first impression to anyone that the home has been well cared for.
