Use summer to plan your fall garden

Summertime is the best time to just sit back and enjoy your garden. And while you’re at it, you can start thinking about fall gardening.
Other than watering, occasional fertilizing and weed upkeep (mostly mechanically because chemicals can no longer be used in the heat of summer on turfgrass but can be used in flower beds), it is best not to take on any extensive landscape installations the next couple of months. Phew. You’re off the hook. What a relief. Spoiler alert: You still have that lawn to contend with.
