If you haven't been able to stay up to date on maintenance, then you might end up having to deal with a severe weed problem in your yard. Several weed species love the summer heat and are known to flourish during this growing season. Perennial weeds such as ground ivy, white clover, and broadleaf plantain may stick around to create problems in your lawn. If these weeds are left unattended, they have the potential to overrun your garden completely by flowering to spread their seeds. Here are two different ways to tackle weeds.

If you are looking forward to creating an aesthetic landscape in fall, then introducing new plants to your front yard in late summer is a recommended gardening hack.

Balloon flowers, bee balm, blue cardinal flowers, chrysanthemums, and coneflowers are only some of the potential plant varieties you can experiment with during this time. Channel your inner creative genius by choosing colorful perennial plants and flowers to grow in your garden.
