Fall Is Calling: What to Do in Your October Garden
October 3, 2014
Get a jump on winter prep or just sit back and watch the leaves fall. The beauty of an autumn garden is in all the choices you have, says Annie Thornton, a Houzz Editorial Staff writer. Gardening this month is no different. Whether you’re after garden chores or perhaps some seasonal puttering, it’s all about picking your own path. You can prep soil for spring planting, divide grasses and transplant perennials, even tuck in more cool-season edibles. Alternatively, you can just enjoy fall’s splendor and put off some of the season’s more tedious tasks. Let fallen leaves provide hearty mulch for your lawns and hold off, for now, on cutting back spent summer and fall plants. Instead, take some time to sit back and watch the leaves change. It’s your garden, so enjoy it. Here’s what you can do in your garden this October: http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/18170754?utm_source=Houzz&utm_campaign=u693&utm_medium=email&utm_content=gallery9
