Summer Landscaping Tips

Summer is finally here, and while we all want to take advantage of the warmer weather and spend more time outdoors, getting your property, including your front lawn, back yard, and even patio area can be overwhelming for those of us who like to stay busy. This year especially is a great time to invest in your property for outdoor gatherings with friends and family.

Tree Trimming

Trimming your trees is an important part of summer maintenance, as weeker branches that fall onto your property can build up and cause a mess. Cleaning up any fallen branches and trimming any branches that will soon fall is a great way to save you time and energy. By keeping your lawn clear of fallen branches you are protecting your grass from damage as well.

Foliage & Shrub Pruning

Winter can be hard on your plant life. As it begins to bloom in spring, make sure that it’s growing in the way you want it to so that it can truly shine once summer is in full swing. Pruning your flowers, shrubs, bushes and other plants will ensure that they are looking their best, and also help the overall health of the plants. At the same time, weeding and mulching are a great way to increase the overall appearance of your garden bed and give it that fresh and natural look.

Patio Maintenance

Making sure your patio is well maintained without cracks or unwanted growth is another big item to check off your list when it comes to summer maintenance. Hardscaping and stonescaping is the best way to keep your patio up to date and under control, so that you can use it to spend all the time you would like outside, with family and friends. Fixing up your patio is the crucial first step before you install new outdoor furniture, plants or other elements.

Lawn Care

While this one is pretty self explanatory, the right lawn care is always important to keeping your grass green and luscious. A well irrigated and regularly cut lawn can go a long way into improving the appearance of the rest of your property.
