Fall Updates from Backyard Eats

The weather might be cooling off, but fall gardening season is still going strong! Keep reading to learn about our recent projects and fall gardening advice, including:
  • A pollinator-friendly front yard garden

  • What we recommend for fall garden maintenance

  • A sneak peek at garlic planting

Lastly, thank you to everyone who visited our table at the Radnor Fall Festival this Sunday! We enjoyed getting to meet new people and discuss the magic of backyard gardening and homegrown food.

New Garden Alert

These clients wanted to build a raised bed vegetable garden without sacrificing their existing pollinator plants…so we built them an aesthetic front yard garden that combines both!
Long raised beds provide ample space to grow food — and thanks to our signature panel fence, the crops will be protected from pests like deer.
A wide, low-maintenance stone pathway connects the two garden zones. No more muddy boots or pesky weeds!
Perennial flowers bloom alongside a custom telescope pad…because who doesn’t want to stargaze in their Backyard Eats garden?

Do you want to experience the magic of homegrown food in your own yard? Book a consultation today to bring your garden project to life!

It’s not too late to buy tickets for our Community Plant Swap with Back to Earth Compost!

Bring a plant and connect with fellow gardeners on Sunday, October 8 for a fun local event that benefits the therapeutic mission of Heroic Gardens.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Up Next: Fall Garlic Planting

Did you know? It only takes a few square feet to grow a large garlic harvest in your own backyard!
We typically plant and mulch garlic between October and November to protect it from harsh cold weather. Garlic planted in the fall will be ready to harvest next summer.
Once you cook with homegrown garlic, you won’t hesitate to grow it again!
