Rejuvenate overgrown flowerbeds of spring and summer blooming perennials by digging them and divided them.

Build a compost pile to collect the upcoming falling autumn foliage and any excess yard waste. Visit Aggie Horticulture for more details.

Apply pre-emergent herbicides to subdue those unwanted cool-season weeds.

Control pillbugs with an approved pesticide on newly emerging and developing vegetable seeds and transplants.
