The Do’s and Don’ts of Landscaping in the Summer

Maintaining a healthy and thriving lawn during the summer season is no easy task! If you choose to forgo the services of your local landscaping company, for now, be sure to adhere to these important do’s and don’ts for landscaping during the summer:

The Do’s For Summer Landscaping

DO: Mow regularly and maintain a schedule.

Having a functioning lawn mower is key to handling summer landscaping on your own. How often you mow, whether it’s about once a week or multiple times a week, will depend on your grass’s growth rate and your personal preferences. Consider cutting with your lawnmower on the highest setting to help prevent brown spots; short grass can’t protect itself efficiently from drought.  

DO: Keep your lawn hydrated.

The key to watering your lawn is to do so at the right time of the day. During peak heat times, the water will evaporate quickly and not hydrate the roots. Watering frequently but not in excess will result in the healthiest grass; be mindful not to overwater! Setting up timed sprinklers will help ensure your lawn is getting enough water to keep thriving.  

DO: Feed and fertilize correctly.

Every lawn benefits from proper fertilizing to help it grow healthy and beautiful, but it’s essential to do so at the right amount. Over-fertilizing can cause burnt and unsightly grass but not fertilizing may leave your grass brown and unable to grow.

DO: Consult a professional property maintenance company in Connecticut.

The best way to ensure your home’s landscaping is beautiful and healthy is to consult a professional. The team at Ambrosio Landscaping Solutions offers regular property maintenance of your entire landscape, so you’ll save time and energy and feel happy knowing your lawn is healthy and always looking great.

The Don’ts For Summer Landscaping

DON’T: Allow weeds to grow.

You want to keep a close eye out for growing weeds and remove them as soon as possible. Once weeds start growing, they can spread quickly and become a big eyesore and more of a hassle to remove. Consider spraying with a proper herbicide in your garden beds to save you some trouble.

DON’T: Allow pests to make themselves happy and at home.

Too many people forget the devastation that invasive pests can have on your landscaping. Many different lawn pests can destroy your grass, so be on the lookout for these invaders and practice proper lawn maintenance, including mowing and watering, to prevent them from making themselves at home.

DON’T: Forget to enjoy your outdoor landscape!

Though landscape maintenance can be a lot of work, it’s important that you don’t forget to enjoy it with your loved ones. Sit back and relax outside or grab some friends and family for some fun out in the sun this summer, so you can admire how beautiful your lawn is.
