It's that time of year again. The sun is shining, it's getting warmer, and summer is just around the corner. That means for homeowners associations (HOAs), it's also time to start prepping their neighborhood’s landscaping for the long days and sweltering temperatures that summer delivers. Preparing your HOA's landscaping for summer can often feel overwhelming but with the right preparation tips, and assistance from an experienced and skilled commercial landscaping provider, you can make this task much more manageable.
In this blog post, we'll discuss important steps HOAs should take to prepare their neighborhood’s landscape for summer.
6 Tips for Preparing Your Neighborhood’s Landscaping for Summer
As an HOA, one of your top priorities is keeping your neighborhood’s landscaping looking beautiful for residents, visitors, and potential future residents. The following are a few tips for what needs to be done to keep your neighborhood’s landscaping looking beautiful all summer long:
- Check for Rodents and Pests – Inspect your landscaping for signs of pest infestations and apply eco-friendly treatments to protect your plants from insects, rodents, and other types of pests.
- Inspect Your Irrigation System – Check your irrigations system for leaks and other issues and consider replacing any parts that are old or outdated. Leaks waste water and increase your water bill and older and outdated irrigations systems use more water than necessary, which is wasteful and costly.
- Let Your Grass Grow – Don’t cut your grass too low. Allow it to grow to the optimum height for that style of grass. If you cut your grass too low, it can weaken and develop bare patches, especially in areas that see heavy foot traffic.
- Add New Plants – Spring is the best time to add certain types of plants to your landscaping, including specific kinds of trees, grass, flowers, and shrubs. Your commercial landscaping expert will know what types of plants should be added each season.
- Mulching, Mulching, Mulching – Spring and early summer are the best times to mulch. Adding mulch helps protect your landscaping’s soil from drying out and mulch helps to properly regulate your soil’s temperature.
- Prune and Trim Your Trees and Shrubs – Pruning your neighborhood’s shrubbery heading into summer will help it look beautiful all summer long. The same goes when it comes to trimming your trees. When you trim your trees, make sure to trim back branches away from walkways and streets. This will keep those areas clear for foot and vehicle traffic.
