Farm Notes. Fall is Here!
For gardeners Labor day is the day to begin laboring on your lawn.
Fall is the best time to sow new grass seed and other plants to
ensure a good healthy lawn for next spring. At this time of year
there are less weeds to compete with the seed you are sowing so
you have less problems to deal with later. Always ensure that you
pick a good mixture of grass seed, using just one kind is more likely
to lead to problems with grubs and other insects that like to feast
on the grass roots and new shoots. Remember however that fescue
seed takes longer to germinate than blue grass so it will take longer
for your lawn seedlings to appear. For those who don't want a monoculture
into an existing lawn or to fill bald patches this is an excellent
time to seed. Be aware that monocultures (just one type of plant)
are almost impossible to create without chemical assistance. Adding
clover helps to provide nitrogen for the grass around it and provides
a much healthier lawn with much less care. It also provides interesting
flowers and helps support our troubled honey bees. For more information

White Clover (Trifolium repens)
Bird's Foot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)
Add this to your lawn and stop having to fertilze it. Clover fixes nitrogen which helps your grass. If you want less maintenance and a greener ‘lawn’ this is a must. More info.

Tolerates heat and drought extremely well and also fixes nitrogen so it helps fertilize the plants around it. Trefoil is a low growing bushy plant that also tolerates foot traffic and cutting very well making it an ideal plant for walkways and inclusion in a lawn, or an interesting border plant. Great for hot dry areas.
