Enjoy Amazing Autumn Days Ahead

With crisp, cool days just around the corner, we love that it’s almost autumn in central Ohio. September is the perfect month to ready your home—and your garden—for the festive season ahead. Here’s our list of ways to make the most of your yard this fall with Strader’s! 

Let Strader’s Help You Make it a September to Remember

Add some autumn splendor to your home this season, both inside and out. Here are some of our favorite ways to celebrate all things fall:

1. Get Grass Growing

September is a great month to focus on lawn care. Whether your grass could benefit from overseeding, re-seeding, or a complete makeover with new sod, Strader’s is here to help you complete your lawn renovation project. We have a large assortment of grass seed, including Scotts®, Jonathon Green®, and T.L.C. Tall Fescue blends. Strader’s also typically has Bluegrass sod in stock—just call ahead to check availability!

At each of our six convenient locations, you can also get the tools you need to tackle your lawn care project and help your grass thrive—now and into next year. From spreaders to sprinklers, gardening hoses, starter fertilizers, and more, stop by your local Strader’s for expert help and accessories!

Even if your lawn looks good now, we recommend fertilizing before the first frost so your dormant grass has the proper nutrients to last through the long winter months ahead.

2. Put Down New Roots

Fall is the ideal season for planting! With cooler air temperatures and warm soil to promote healthy root development, now’s the time to install trees, shrubs, perennials, and evergreens around your yard. You can even put plants in the ground that have been cut back or that have dropped foliage for the year. Plus, when you take advantage of this season’s weather and warmer soil, next year you’ll notice more growth and beautiful blooms!

Don’t forget to amend soil with Bumper Crop® or Posy Power™ and finish with Bio-Tone® when you plant this fall!

3. Mum’s the Word

Our Strader’s greenhouses are overflowing with the quintessential flower of fall: chrysanthemums. With mums available in 4”, 8” and 10” pots as well as hanging baskets, we grow a huge selection annually in all color varieties from red to orange, bronze, yellow, white, pink, purple, and even coral. Stop by your local Strader’s and take your pick while they last!

4. Bring Home a Fall Harvest

At Strader’s, we change with the weather. That’s why we’ve updated our store selections with a harvest of home decor for fall. Our indoor and outdoor accents include metal yard art, porch signs, doormats, wreaths, scarecrows, and more! We’ve also stocked up on seasonal scents like Swan Creek candles and wax melts.
