One Stop Gardening Advice




Fall is the perfect time to begin thinking about your yard for next year. The soil is still soft and easy to dig, the days still have good sunshine in which plants can develop root systems and build nutrients, and winter is just around the corner so your fall plantings will go dormant and get the rest for that busy spring that'll be here before you know it.

Now that I've got you thinking you're probably wondering, "Hmmm...what should I plant?" Well obviously you want to plant drought tolerant, low maintenance, low water plants right? Have no fear all the information you want is at one easy to find place, the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service has information on plant needs, choosing the right plants (list included), efficient watering, installing irrigation systems and lots more to help you get ready for next spring.
