When you think of planting new flowers around your home, you may think of the spring as the time for major planting and landscaping projects. Surprisingly, the fall is actually the perfect season for planting. There’s so many different kinds of plants that thrive in the cooler weather. From perennials to trees to shrubs to vegetables, fall has it all. You just need to know what to plant in this thriving season that will be perfect for cooler weather. There’s so many different kinds of plants that are great for the fall, this article will surprise you. The benefits of planting in the fall are many. The cooler temperatures are better for both the plants and you as a gardener. You can spend more time outdoors since the temperature is more suitable. Because the soil itself is still warm, it allows the roots of plants to grow all the way up until the time that the ground freezes later in the season. As a bonus, when everything is blooming during the spring, so will your fall flowers. In the spring, you need to wait to begin planting until the soil is warmer, which can take some time. This actually means that there’s more good days for planting in the fall season than in the spring. The spring has notoriously unpredictable weather, making planting in this season even harder. Just be sure that you provide your fall plants with enough water. This usually isn't a problem considering the fall has quite a bit of rain. Pests and plant diseases are at a yearly low as well, making it a great time for planting. The other bonus to the fall is that you don’t need fertilizer. It’s not the right season to fertilize in most cases. If you weren’t already aware, you need to stop fertilizing before the end of summer for most of your plants. The type of growth that fertilizer promotes can be stopped abruptly by winter weather, causing harm to the plant. If you’re planning on planting in the fall, try to plant about a month and a half before the first frost, which usually hits in late October. Vegetables that can be planted in the fall include: Cabbage Kale Lettuce Rutabaga Spinach Carrots Brussel Sprouts Swiss Chard Radishes Broccoli The fall is actually the best time to plant your turf grass and clean up your lawn as well. Blue grass, fescue and ryegrass need to be planted at this time. These grasses are all cool weather grasses and should be fertilized in early September and again later in the fall before the frost hits. This will give your grass a boost for an earlier green burst in the spring. Warm season grasses shouldn’t be fertilized during their dormant months. Hopefully, you’re inspired to plant during this fall season!

???Robert Frost's poem, Mending Wall, poses an interesting question about whether "good fences make good neighbors."

On one hand, there are several advantages to having your property surrounded by a fence, especially if you or your neighbors have dogs or small children running around.

If you happen to have a vegetable garden or fruit trees in your backyard, a well-constructed fence can also help keep out ravenous deer, rabbits, raccoons, skunks, foxes, and other wildlife.

There's no doubt that fences can serve a variety of useful purposes, ranging from privacy and safety to wildlife control and home security. While it can be beneficial to mark off your property boundaries and keep your backyard private, a question to consider is whether a large fence -- especially a new one -- sends the wrong message to your neighbors.  Striking the perfect balance between privacy and friendly neighbor relations can be tricky at times, but there are compelling reasons to stay on good terms.

  1. Security reasons: If you take the time to chat with your neighbors every now and then, they'll have more of a tendency to keep an eye on your property when you're on vacation or just away for the day -- especially if you ask them.  People tend to be more helpful, observant, and protective of others with whom they share a bond or have a sense of community. In contrast to that, if they don't even know your name and haven't exchanged more than a few words with you in years, they'll be less inclined to pay attention to who's on your property and whether they belong there or not.
  2. Sharing resources: Keeping the lines of communication open with your neighbors is beneficial on many levels. When you have a friendly, ongoing relationship, you won't feel reluctant to ask them for help when your car battery's dead and you're running late for work. Trusted neighbors can also provide you with valuable information, such the names of dependable home improvement contractors or how to arrange a free pickup of household clutter that you want to donate to the Salvation Army.
  3. Quality of life: When you're regularly greeted by friendly neighbors, your neighborhood will feel like more of a welcoming and upbeat place to live. It may be necessary for you to set the example or make the first move, but once a friendly atmosphere has been created in a neighborhood, it's relatively easy to keep it going.

So while you may not want your neighbors to get in the habit of stopping by your home to chew the fat, every day, it can be worth your while to greet them by name, offer help whenever possible, and be the kind of good neighbor you'd like them to be. Setting a positive example may be all that's needed to establish a cooperative relationship and possibly even a life-long friendship. And, if all else fails, keep in mind the words of Benjamin Franklin: "Love thy neighbor, but don't pull down your hedge!"
