Summer is a big time of the year for your outdoor landscape. With the weather warming up, your landscape maintenance procedures are going to change. It will likely be in your best interest to bring in the services of a landscaping company to help get your yard in good shape. But what exactly can a landscaping company do for your outdoor landscape his summer? Here are some landscape maintenance services you can get from your landscaping company this summer.
Regular Lawn Mowing
Grass is going to need constant mowing during summer. If you don’t stick to a regular mowing schedule, the grass could get too tall, meaning you might cut more off than you should when you go to make your cut.
Grass should be somewhere between 3.5 inches and 4 inches in height in the summer. This way, your soil, and the grass’s roots will have sufficient protection against the sun.
A professional landscape maintenance company will know how to keep your grass at the ideal height, and they can also detect when your soil and roots have sustained any damage.
Can’t Go Wrong With Mulching
Mulch is widely popular with property owners because of the pleasant look it gives to landscape beds. However, there’s so much more that mulch offers beyond aesthetic appearance. Firstly, mulch serves as a sort of insulator, protecting your roots from the heat of the sun so that they stay cool through the warm months of summer.
Mulch is also helpful for containing moisture, meaning your plants have an easier time absorbing water and staying hydrated. This is especially important during summer because it’s easier for water to evaporate when the temperatures are soaring.
Lastly, mulch can help keep weeds from growing, which would otherwise siphon nutrients from your plants and inhibit their growth.
Fertilization and Weed Control
To guarantee that your lawn remains healthy, proper application of different fertilizers will be necessary, as well as weed control. Fertilizer will supply your plants with the needed nutrients to thrive, while weed control is essential for keeping weeds from being leeches and stealing nutrients from your plants. A landscape maintenance company can help you with the fertilization and weed control procedures.
