Planning a Fall Garden? Cumming, GA
landscaped garden

Many Georgia families are still spending a lot of time at home. Whether your kids are doing virtual school or you are working remotely, the extra time at your house can be a great opportunity to expand your landscape. In fact, if you’ve always wanted a small garden on your property but never had the time to commit to it, now could be the perfect chance. A fall garden can bring cheap food to your dinner table as well as give your children an educational lesson in growing food and sustainability.

Though it may seem too hot to think about growing anything right now, it will soon be time to plan for a fall garden. There are a variety of cool-season vegetables that can be planted in Georgia during the fall. The following are recommendations from UGA’s Vegetable Planting Chart and should be easy to find at your local feed-and-seed store:

  • BroccoliMarathon, Packman, Patriot, Premium Crop, Bravo, Decathion
  • CabbageBlue Dynasty, Bravo, Early Round Dutch, Rio Verde, Green Jewel
  • CarrotChantenay, Scarlet Nantes, Sweetbites, Sweet Delight
  • CauliflowerAbsolute, Early Snowball, Graffiti (purple), White Magic, Symphony
  • Collard GreensBlue Max, Georgia Southern, Hevi-Crop
  • KaleVates, Dwarf Siberian, Blue Armor, Blue Knight
  • LettuceButterhead, Romaine, Buttercrunch
  • Mustard GreensFlorida Broadleaf, Southern Giant Curled, Red Giant, Savannah
  • Onion, GreenWhite Portugal
  • Onion, Dry BulbBurgundy, Excel, Grano, Red Creole, Savannah Sweet
  • RadishCherry Bell, Scarlet Globe, Champion
  • SpinachMelody, Winter Bloomsdale

How to Prepare Your Space for a Garden

Along with deciding what you want to plant, it will also be important to determine the best location for your garden. The size of your space should depend on how many vegetables you are growing and the type of seed you will be planting. In addition, you’ll need to pick an area that has the following characteristics:

  • Sunny (at least six hours of direct sunlight)
  • Moist soil (well-drained without rocks)
  • Stable/Protected (no foot traffic, wildlife invaders, strong winds, etc)

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

Ashley W.

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
