It's getting a little cooler here in Texas...WooHoo!!!
Water deeply in early morning, or evening, and infrequently...as needed. Hopefully, with the rain chances increasing, you won't need to as often.
It's time to apply pre-emergent for weeds. I suggest Nature's Creation Corn Gluten Meal. You'll feel like you've walked through a yellow cloud, but you do get great coverage. Timing is important...Apply, water in a bit with your sprinkler system or time it with rain, and let it stay dry a few days after.
Fertilize your lawn and flowerbeds with Nature's Creation Fertilizer approximately 2 weeks or so after your pre-emergent treatment. Water in.
Contine to fertilize your planters this month 2x/month, at 1/2 strength. I use Garrett Juice Plus.
It's time to make your landscape dreams come true! It's a great time to plant!

What "To Do" in the Garden this Month:
I'm always amazed at how much there is to do in the garden, and so many times I feel a bit
overwhelmed with what I want to do versus what I can do. So, I make a list.
Lists are great; I absolutely love them!
But, always remember that God ordains our steps and His way will always be best.
I love to use the Dirt Doctor's "What to Do" as a guide.

Another great resource is Robert "Skip" Richter's book,
