October Tips

Shane's Spot: ​Begin planting your herbs and veggies!
October is a great month to plant vegetables and herbs that will produce foods during the winter months. Some options to plant are strawberry plants, garlic, cilantro, broccoli, and lettuce! You may also want to prevent any winter weeds from growing by applying preemergence herbicides to your lawn. Lastly, remember to always adequately water your garden!
As always, remember to install your sod green side up!
