Here are a few tips on how to maintain your landscaping in the summer heat.
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 helps hold moisture throughout the day helping your landscaping from completely drying out.
It is always important to water earlier than later on those hot summer days. This will allow the roots to soak all the moisture before it gets to hot too.
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.
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.
