5 Summer Tips  to  Keep Your Landscape Looking It’s Best

Summer is the time for sunshine, but it can also be a detrimental time to your community’s landscape if not cared for properly! Landscapes demand more attention during the hottest months and our expert landscape technicians make sure that your landscape gets exactly what it needs in order to thrive during the heat!

1. Water Conservation

Conserving water in California has become a year-round task, but never more important than in the summer months! Our team regularly inspects our client’s irrigation systems and immediately repairs any leaks. This eliminates water waste and ensures that the plants, tress, and grass are getting the water that they need. Stay Green now offers Smart Irrigation systems that can be adjusted and controlled from an app on your smartphone. With the expertise of our team, coupled with the technology of Smart Irrigation your plants are sure to be the envy of the neighborhood all year long!

2. Tree Trimming

Proper trimming improves the health of the tree by removing diseased, dead, or drying branches and leaves. How well you care for your trees determines its shape, strength and life span. A properly trimmed and well cared for tree offers benefits such as adding aesthetic value to the landscape and limiting potential injury or damage from falling branches. At Stay Green we offer expert tree trimming that will have your trees thriving throughout the summer and all year long!

3. Planting

Adding a layer of fresh soil to your planters and gardens does more than just give it a fresh new look. Fresh soil retains moisture better helping to keep your planters cool and your landscape flourishing. Fresh soil also acts as a barrier to the sun protecting the roots from the harsh summer heat. It can better absorb water for plant nourishment, and it helps to prevent the growth of weeds in your garden. Our team highly recommend adding new soil to your plants at the beginning of summer to give it a leg up on the heat!

4. Fertilization

Everything seems harder in the heat! Lawns, trees, shrubs, and plants work hard to grow in the summer so making sure that they have the proper nutrition is extremely important. When the landscape is well fed, it is much more equipped to handle the summer heat.

5. Mowing

Weekly trimmings are important all year long, but in the summer months, those mowing’s do more than just cut the grass! They promote a healthier lawn that grows deeper, strengthens the roots, and requires less water. In the summer months, we adjust our mower blades to deliver a longer cut. Longer grass helps to conserve water resulting in reduced water consumption for our clients, while still delivering the clean-cut appearance that we all love!
