Get Ready for Fall!

Welcome to Ruhlig Farms and Gardens

Winter is quickly approaching!

Before the first freeze, thoroughly fertilize your lawn to replace any nutrients that can be lost from the soil during the hot summer months. Once the weather turns cold, the fertilizer will remain in the soil and feed your lawn all winter long.

Don’t forget to wrap up your outdoor chores before it’s too late!

  • Drain and store your hoses so they don’t freeze and crack
  • Mow your lawn one more time to get rid of the leaves before the snow piles on it
  • Make sure your grass is cut as short as possible, this will protect any new growth that may be fragile near the end of the growing season
  • Wrap any young trees that you planted this year from animals by using wire or commercial tree-guard products
  • Clear your lawn of all objects after you mow it for the last time
