How to Prepare Your Community's Landscape for The Heat of Summer

Summer is just around the corner, and with it comes the heat. As temperatures rise, it's important to prepare your community's landscape for the summer months. Here are some tips to help keep your community's landscape looking its best during the heat of summer.


Watering

One of the most important things you can do to prepare your community's landscape for summer is to make sure it's properly watered. This means ensuring that your irrigation system is in good working order and that your plants are receiving enough water. During the summer months, you may need to water your plants more frequently than you do during other times of the year. Be sure to water early in the morning or in the evening to avoid evaporation.


Mulching

Mulching is another important step in preparing your community's landscape for summer. Mulch helps to retain moisture in the soil, which is especially important during the summer months. It also helps to keep the soil cool and protects the roots of your plants from the heat. Be sure to apply a layer of mulch around the base of your plants, but avoid piling it up against the trunk or stems.


Pruning

Pruning your plants can also help to prepare your community's landscape for summer. By removing dead or damaged branches, you can help your plants focus their energy on healthy growth. Pruning can also help to improve air circulation, which can be especially important during the hot summer months.


Fertilizing

Fertilizing your plants can also help to prepare your community's landscape for summer. However, be careful not to over-fertilize, as this can actually harm your plants. Instead, choose a slow-release fertilizer and apply it according to the package instructions.


Conclusion

Preparing your community's landscape for summer may take a bit of work, but it's well worth the effort. By following these tips, you can help to ensure that your community's landscape stays healthy and vibrant throughout the summer months. Remember to water, mulch, prune, and fertilize your plants, and you'll be well on your way to a beautiful summer landscape.
