Landscaping can completely transform the area around you. People enjoy beauty and nature, so public and private landscaping is so common. With the warm weather comes barbeques, playing in backyard pools, and nights by a bonfire. There is a lot to consider when landscaping during the summertime. Summer might seem like the perfect time to begin your landscaping journey. However, there are essential factors to keep in mind. Keep reading for some landscaping tips to use this summer.
Water Your Lawn Properly
Refrain from watering your lawn in the evening. Otherwise, your property will be more susceptible to disease, mold, and pests. Also, watering your lawn during the middle of the day means that the sun will evaporate the water quickly. We advise you to water early in the morning to ensure the water has plenty of time to soak into the soil. If you can’t dedicate a few minutes of your morning to watering the lawn, the proper drainage systems can be helpful.
Mulch Your Garden Beds
Think about adding mulch instead of grass or leaving dirt around outdoor living spaces and flowerbeds. Mulch fertilizes your plants, prevents weeds, and it is low-maintenance because you don’t have to mow or water it.
It’s affordable, and you only have to replace it in the spring. Mulch also prevents weeds from growing in your flower beds during the summer, especially if you put a protective mat underneath.
Plant Some Perennials
Invest in your yard for the long term by adding plants that return every year. Find some that grow well in your area and in the type of sun your yard receives, arrange them in a pleasing formation, add some fertilizer, and plant them. You will instantly see an improvement in your landscaping, and you’ll be able to enjoy them for years.
Add Landscape Lighting
Use outdoor lighting to highlight your landscaping efforts and boost safety and security without increasing your energy bill. Install them around your trees, along your sidewalks, and in front of your house. They will light visitors’ way and look beautiful to anyone who passes by. You may even want to add them to your patio for illumination during a late-night backyard party.
