Fall is the perfect time to re-seed your lawn or plant new trees and shrubs. Not too hot, not too cold. With the dry summer we just had and the very cold temperatures forecasted for winter, now is also the time you should be giving your trees some extra water to help them survive the harsh winter weather. Just as you wrap delicate bushes, giving your trees, especially the younger ones whose roots are not well established, extra doses of water will help them to prepare for the worst. Put the hose on a slow trickle and give each tree 30 minutes or so every few days. They will thank you in the spring.
