Your Landscaping Guide to Beat the Summer Heat

A brag-worthy lawn requires a lot of maintenance. In the brutal summer months, many obstacles appear between you and your perfect landscape. Whether it’s pest control, weeds, or irrigation problems, we got you covered. Here are some tips you should keep in mind for your summer landscaping plans. Give us a call and we will find the perfect landscaping solution for you and your property!


The foundation for your perfect yard begins with maintenance. Remove overgrown trees and plants that are unattractive and hazardous, as well as other debris like twigs and branches.

The importance of a mowed lawn is often forgotten. Keep a tidy and pretty lawn by mowing it regularly.

Keeping it between 2.5 and 3 inches will provide the grass with more insulation to fight the heat. This also reduces the water loss for the soil and creates an environment resistant to stressors, insects, and diseases.

If you are unable to do this yourself, we are happy to help.

Irrigation, Irrigation, Irrigation!

Did we mention irrigation? Your yard and plants are thirsty!

Keeping your yard and plants properly hydrated in the summer heat is the key to a beautiful and healthy lawn. Proper irrigation will make sure water goes where is should and doesn’t collect or flood. Especially with all of the recent flooding in our area, you want to prevent this danger before it arises. There are a variety of irrigation solutions, so reach out to us and we will install the best system to keep your landscape hydrated.

Pest control 

The summer heat attracts a variety of harmful and annoying pests that can destroy your landscaping. Its best to take preventative measures against insects, because they can become a huge nuisance if gone unnoticed.

Proper pest control gets rid of harmful critters while protecting good bugs and pollinators that are important for your landscape’s ecosystem. If you are uncertain about spraying chemicals and pesticides, we are here to help. Having a plan of action is important to get the most out of your landscaping.
