Grasses Spotlight

Although it may not seem like it, fall is an excellent time to plant! It is the recommended time to plant bulbs for spring but it is a good time to plant trees shrubs and even perennials as well. Grasses are a perfect fall plant because they keep their shape throughout the fall. Most grasses will lose their full color by mid fall but maintain their height which makes them a great backdrop for an autumn aesthetic.
