Gardening Tip of the Day

  • It's a good idea to cut grass shorter in the fall than in the summer.
    Lowering the setting on your mower one or two notches, especially for the last mowing offers two major benefits:
    Shorter grass doesn't mat down during winter rains and snows. Matting can lead to disease and big problems come spring.
    A shorter lawn makes leaf cleanup much easier. On a windy day, many of the leaves may simply blow away!
    When you put the mower away at the end of the season, remember to reset its cutting height to a higher setting.
