You know the summer is almost over when it’s time for the state fair. The Maryland State Fair is a wonderful family event no matter what your age is. There are rides for small and big kids. If you don’t like the rides, you can see the animals. The 4-H has lots of animals on display as well as the large farm animals in the Cow Palace. And the food! Who doesn’t love fair food?! The fair always has lots of entertainment, including concerts. This year’s headliners are Hailstorm and Sabrina Carpenter.

One sign that Labor Day is right around the corner is the Maryland State Fair. Great food, exciting rides, live concerts and lots of 4H animals make the state fair one of the best entertainment values of the summer. Cheaper than going to the movies, and lots more fun, it’s a great deal at $8 for adults and $6 for seniors and $3 for kids 6-11.

September Garden Tips

Turf renovation is what September is all about in Maryland.  De-thatching, core aeration, slit seeding and over seeding are all very beneficial.   The warm days and cooler nights help expedite germination and promote better root growth before late fall’s cold temperatures settle in

For more helpful landscape ideas or help getting them accomplished, contact my preferred landscape contractor, David Dix of DCD Lawnscaping, INC at 443.463.9957.  Dave has a horticulture degree and is the owner/operator of his small local business that has been serving the community for over 17 years.
