While winters are spent indoors, summers are the time where you can finally put your backyard, lawn, and garden to good use. From barbecue treats to poolside parties, you will need a good-looking summer landscape for all the fun. That is why there are a few things that you must keep in mind when taking care of your summer landscape.
Here are a few tips from our experts at Earth and Turf Landscaping.
Water Your Plants When It’s Hot
In the height of summer, the sun is scorching and will evaporate any amount of water you dispense before the earth has absorbed it. That is why many such efforts seem to be going in vain. Don’t schedule plant watering around the sunny and hotter parts of the day.
Slack on Pest Control
Summer landscapes are haunted by a lot of different insects and microbes. It is best to steer clear of these little creatures by making your lawn a habitat that is unfit for their dwelling – which will destroy the look and the hygiene of your lawn if you let it happen.
Uproot Weeds Regularly
Weeds are one of the biggest magnets for dirt, pests, and debris that can ruin the entire look and feel of your summer landscape. You will need to take care of weeds as regularly as you can. Industry tip: pressure washing is a great way to remove debris!
Mown grass – if it is under 3 inches in length – does not offer shelter to any insects or pests. It also prevents a lot of debris from collecting on your lawn. That is why regular mowing can save your lawn from a variety of problems and you from a lot of effort.
