Current Enviromental Conditions
The weather condition remains Prime throughout Southeastern
Wisconsin, with a prime outlook coming out of summer in the near term.
The vegetable crop will produce a hearty bounty in both
quality and abundance for you diligent growers.
Weed control will be the only deterrent, but by now you have put in your
time in that regard.
The apple crop will be enormous, not just compared to last
year, but historically. Remember a fruit
tree that struggles in the previous year returns robustly the following and we all
remember last years terrible growing condition.
The pumpkin crop will be large, your tomato plants will
harvest several times, and your perennials will expand at remarkable
This early autumn will be a perfect time to plant foundation
shrubs and perennials at your home.
Strong plant material combined with lower soil temperatures and abundant
soil moisture will offer a perfect condition for short term acclamation
required for late summer and early autumn plantings.
Same holds true with tree installations. There actually has been risk of overwatering
large root masses this year. An over-correction of last years watering habits.
If you intend on applying a lawn of grass this fall, the
weather condition should offer confidence in both seeded lawn and sod
Here at Natures Nook we have always favored sodded lawns for
their ease of maintenance and stronger first effort results. But make no mistake; seeded lawns installed
in 2+ inches of soil tolerate a wider range of future weather conditions, like
drought or flood.
But also we must remark about the “human factor” in this
weather condition report. To be out
doors this year has been a delight. Calm
wind, pleasant air temperatures, humidity of lower percentages all combine to
make the outdoor experience worth the effort.
Landscape should be about 3 things. First and foremost; control of the
environment such as grade stabilization, water abatement and usability. Second is the function and appeal of the
space, does it suit your need? But third
is the enjoyment you derive from spending time in it and this year my friends,
the weather is Prime!
