August Draws to Close with Great Weather

Discount by the Date for BatesRewards members!

If you’re thinking of doing any “dirt work” around your abode, you can’t pick a better time of year. Weather conditions are perfect for grading projects. With fall approaching ever closer, many are getting their soil ready for the anticipated fall planting season. You should be thinking about it. So often, projects become complicated by the simple passage of time. Seasons change and before you know it, the dry conditions, so good for grading work, pass and give way to rain that interferes with such projects.

We have been busily working all summer in preparation towards that end. Very soon, hopefully by the end of next week, we will have a more complete array of topsoil products available and ready for your projects. In addition to our EarthMix® Premium Topsoil Blend, we will also have sifted & screened topsoil, as well as unscreened. We will have those products available for pick-up on your truck or trailer or we have delivery available.

New shipments are arriving every week now, including plants from our great friends at Monrovia. There are a couple of on-air segments coming up I did, talking about Monrovia plants. This past spring I did a spot on Volunteer Gardener that will air Thursday August 25, 2011 at 7:30pm (that’s tonight) and again on Sunday morning, August 28, 2011 at 9:30am. It’s been a while since I did this spot, so there’s no telling exactly what I was talking about, join host Annette Schraeder and me on NPT and find out!

Doesn’t seem right to let August just slip on by without a proper send-off. We are bringing back our Discount by the Date sale, through Thursday September 1, 2011 for our BatesRewards members. Of course that means you get to discount your entire order by the date of that day. Friday customers will receive a whopping 26% off, Saturday guests receive 27% off. The gloom of Monday will be tempered by an incredible 29% off everything. Tuesday you’ll get 30% off, Wednesday August 31st you will receive 31% off; and on Thursday the 1st we’ll give you 32% off!

We still have the free bottled water on ice, ready for your arrival; hope you’ll come see us!
