Mulch Helps Your Garden During Seasonal Changes
It's Fall! What Does That Mean to Your Garden?
Now that it’s officially fall, it’s time to cut way back on your watering schedule. If you use an automatic irrigation system, make some adjustments to account for fewer hours of daylight, cooler temperatures, and rainfall.
And if you’re watering by hand, just scrape away mulch and dig down a little to check the moisture level around the root zone. Wind and cooler temps can dry out plants, but chances are the soil’s a little more damp than it was a few months ago.
Mulch it Up
A well-composted mixture of grass clippings, dried leaves, and other yard trimmings makes a great mulch for fall, but to give it an extra boost, try our Happy Frog Soil Conditioner, which will do everything you need a mulch to do and add 19 species of beneficial microbes to your soil. These microbes help feed plants at the root zone and keep them strong over the winter months.
