    (Media-Newswire.com) – SAN ANTONIO – According to gardening experts, fall is the best time for planting in South Central Texas, and fall planting will be the focus of the next Earth-Kind Landscape Series presentation by the San Antonio Botanical Garden and Texas AgriLife Extension Service.

    The “Fall is for Planting” adult horticulture program will be presented from 1-3 p.m. on Oct. 24 at the San Antonio Botanical Garden, 555 Funston, San Antonio. David Rodriguez, AgriLife Extension agent for horticulture in Bexar County, is the program presenter.

    “After two years of drought, this fall will be an ideal time to restore and re-establish landscapes,” Rodriguez said. “The cooler temperatures are more conducive to planting, and many trees and plants establish much better when planted in the fall as opposed to other times of the year.”

    Ornamental grasses, many of which are native to North America, have earned a place in just about any landscape. But you would be hard pressed to find anybody more enthusiastic about them than Heather Burkert of H. Burkert & Co, in Bolivia.

    By Carol Miller / The Dallas Morning News

    FORT WORTH – When Julie Shoptaugh saw the Ridglea Hills house on Luther Lake in West Fort Worth, she saw an opportunity to put her stamp on the property.

    “The location was good, the bones of the house were good, the lake was good,” Shoptaugh says.

    She loves the neighborhood. “It reminded me of Pittsburgh,” Shoptaugh says, where she had lived before buying the house in 2006. “The Ridglea Hills area really does have hills. Having a lake in an urban area, with views of the lake from the bedroom, the living room, the dining room, the pool, is so, so unique.”
