Even though it’s beginning to feel a lot like fall, it is probable that you haven’t been able to stop mowing your lawn. The warm weather has kept our grass growing later into the year than usual, and that also means you have weed control that you have to take care of. Weeds like dandelions are the frustration of many yard gurus alike. They sprout up and seem to take over your lawn before you even have time to react. This is the time of year to fight back against these pests. This is the time of year that dandelions are in their energy-absorbing mode. They soak up any bit of moisture thrown their way in order to survive. Apply herbicides now that they are sure to drink up. Actions such as this can prevent these weeds from returning in the spring.

If you are an avid gardener then you already know that the end of spring and summer does not mark the end of prime gardening season. Plants that you should consider planting in the month of September include vegetables like Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cauliflower, Cabbage and Collards.
