October 23, 2013, Salt Lake City, Utah, Red Butte Garden
During these last few warm and gorgeous autumn days, head up to Red Butte Garden for a walk or a hike in the Natural Area. The Garden offers free Wi-fi and it’s the perfect place for a lunch break from the office or school.
Fall Gardening Tip: An extended dry period, especially one right before winter, can be especially damaging to conifers, so even though your sprinklers may be turned off for the season, it is a good idea to use a hose and deep-water your conifer trees and shallow-rooted trees such at Birch.
