When looking out into the back yard, do you see a waste land of unused open space that has not been tapped?  Or, is the backyard a perfectly groomed masterpiece with curved flower beds and green lush grass that does not get used but by your trusty dog or the neighbor’s cat?  Well get in and put on the seat belt cause that’s all going to change.  Fall is a coming and the outside temperature is going to drop to something called comfortable.  So let’s figure this out.
