Summer is officially here! Summer is synonymous with warm and happy times, yes, even during a pandemic. During the summer, the sun comes out more, the grass seems greener, trees cool down and provide shade to hot areas, gardens stand out with colorful flowers, and homeowners make more use of their outdoor living spaces. With summer being here, you may be thinking of ways to make your garden more visually appealing, and the landscaping experts are here to help! Here are some significant summer gardening tips.
Prepare for Those Worrisome Weeds
Even in the most well-kept gardens, weeds can be inevitable. Hotter weather, unfortunately, means more weeds. Luckily, some techniques deter them from growing in your garden. Here is what you can do:
- Apply Mulch
- Use Weed Mats
- Cultivate Your Landscape
Fertilize Your Landscape
Are you unsure of what fertilizer to use? Then, you can reach out to us. There are so many advantages to having Evergreen Gene’s on your team. If you need advice, our experts can help you tenfold. The healthiest and best gardens use fertilizer because often, soil alone does not provide enough nutrients to plants and flowers.
There is something oh so satisfying about planting and growing your food. For one, it promotes a healthier lifestyle. Vegetables are also a conversation starter. Most people have flowers, shrubs, and hedges on their landscape, but how often is it that people grow vegetables? Here are some veggies that we recommend:
Make Sure That The Soil is Its Healthiest
When your landscape has healthy soil, it means that roots develop and spread quickly. When you til your land, it breaks up the soil so that nutrients and water can spread throughout the soil. Is your soil compact? A process called aeration can help. It involves digging tiny holes into the ground so that nutrients can get to your soil, plants, and flowers.
Remove Any Dead Foliage
Dead foliage can be an eyesore and causes your garden not to look as vibrant. If you see any dead or yellowing leaves, then we recommend removing them.
