BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Fall weather means garden changes, and it is prime time to add trees, shrubs and ground covers. The rewards of a well planned landscape provide shade, privacy and color, plus you can correct drainage problems while increasing the value of your home.
Just remember to think ahead so that what you do plant does not become a problem years later. Warm season grasses will grow slower now and brown patch can continue all winter if the weather is mild. Fall color is vibrant and easy to care for, if you have been adding to your compost all summer.
Make use of the cooler weather to improve your garden soil. It’s hard work made easier when cooler.
