Summer may be nearly over, but your yard shouldn’t have to suffer just because you’re not going to be out in it as much. You’re going to pass it by every time you leave for work and return, and may even host a few early evening autumn fires as the weather starts to cool down; you don’t want to be left with some rickety plastic chairs and lot of empty space.
