Your spider is a marbled orbweaver, Araneus marmorous. They appear to go to the ground to hunt when colder weather decreases the flying insect populations. In warm weather they have big circular strong webs in open places, where other types of spiders’ webs couldn’t withstand the wind and other environmental factors.
