We are in the heat of the summer. Now is especially important to take care of your landscaping! Here are a few tips on how to maintain your landscaping in the summer heat.
UTILIZE MULCH IN YOUR LANDSCAPING
When it gets extremely hot outside it depletes all the moisture out of your soil and your plants. By adding mulch to your landscaping, it help hold moisture throughout the day helping your landscaping from completely drying out.
WATER EARLY IN THE DAY
It is always important to water earlier than later on those hot summer days. This will allow for the roots to soak all the moisture before it gets to hot too.
LET YOUR GRASS BLADES GROW
Allow your grass to grow a bit longer than usual if you know it is going to be a hot week. Longer grass blades actually act as a shield to protect your soil from those mean UV rays.
KEEP UP WITH ALL THE WEEDS
Even though this is a staple of lawn care, it is especially important in the heat of the summer. It is important to keep weeds out of your landscaping so that they don't suck all the nutrients out of your already struggling landscaping.
