Now is the time to prepare for fall garden

It’s so hot outside that Floridians’ vegetable gardens are burned out. But garden expert Larry Figart says that it’s the perfect time to start getting ready for the fall growing season.

Lawn Aeration Services

Lawn Aeration Services

Aeration is the breaking down of the soil to provide space for air, water and nutrients to reach deep in the soil to the roots. This process will aid in helping your roots grow deeper in the soil and have longer, wider and stronger grass blades. Having deeper roots helps the grass fight minor grub worm issue and tolerate more stress from drought because the roots are reaching deeper to find the water supply.

Summer Fertilizer Restrictions

Summer Fertilizer Restrictions

Residents are reminded that the county’s fertilizer ordinance prohibits the sale or application of fertilizers containing nitrogen and/or phosphorus during that time frame. Phosphorus cannot be used at any time of the year unless a soil test confirms it is needed. Also, fertilizer can never be applied within 10 feet from the top of a slope leading to a seawall, wetland or waterbody.
