As we see light at the end of the tunnel from the dog days of Summer, we are eagerly anticipating Fall on the farm… It is such a beautiful time of year with cool breezes and lots of wildlife activity. Our cow work schedule is set for the coming months, and it's always much more pleasant to saddle up when it's a bit brisk out. We are really excited! In honor of that time of year when it's easier to spend the day outside without melting into a puddle, here is a blog post about our gorgeous sunsets on the property. We are really proud of them, and feel very blessed and thankful to be able to see them every morning here. After all these years, they have yet to lose their charm… They are just that beautiful!

Now, not only is the Fall a good time for being outside on the ranch, but it is also a wonderful time to lay new sod in your lawn. Not only is it easier for you when the heat breaks a bit, but it's also great timing for your new sod. Here in Florida, we have the luxury of never having a "bad" time to install new landscaping, but some are better than others for various reasons. For example, if you lay your new sod in the Fall, it will easily acclimate and put down roots throughout the cooler months with no stress on it, and then as soon as it begins to warm in the Spring, you will already have a head start on your neighbors with a gorgeous, super green lawn. Treat with some weed and feed fertilizer, sit back, relax, and enjoy it!
We hope you are all having a great end to your Summer and we would love to have an opportunity to send you some of our cut fresh, straight from the family farm sod!
Here is a photo taken in our Floratam St. Augustine fields recently. The rainy July here translated to some super green sod!
