Soon the kids will be headed back to school, temperatures will drop and we will all be clothed in comfy knit sweaters. That’s right — fall is on its way and here at Henta Products, we are looking ahead to prepare for the months to come.

Fall Gardening Tips

Before you begin gardening in August, prep your soil and gardening space. Add new mulch and loosen the soil to improve your plants chances to survive and flourish. Make sure to pull all weeds from the surrounding areas where you will be planting – provide room for your plants to grow.

While you’re at the nursery, be sure to look for the best plants. Roots should not be hanging out of the bloom and healthy foliage should be overwhelmingly visible.

Henta Landscape Mats, Landscape Pots and Group N’ Scoops  pamper and protect your lawn while also making the perfect bed for some fall flowers or edible plants to grow in.
