Spring and summer gardens are wonderful, but fall is a special season for gardening in the Piedmont! This is the perfect time for planting, transplanting, and starting fall-flowering containers. After the long hot summer, cooler temperatures make it easier on the plants and on the gardener too. Simple seasonal chores like winterizing tools are also on the list, to help you be prepared for future gardening seasons.

In the Piedmont, rejuvenating lawns is best done in fall. Knowing and using good growing practices all year also saves you time and money, and reduces environmental impact. Establishing a healthy stand of grass now with good planning and sensible management will minimize issues with weeds and diseases in the future - you can have a beautiful healthy lawn and also reduce the impact and expense of lawn chemicals.
