Landscaping is important in increasing your home’s exterior appeal. It may not seem like it, but adding a few trees, shrubs and an assortment of plants around your home can do wonders for your property. However, different plants and trees thrive in certain seasons, and most of them tend to wilt or grow out of control by the end of summer and early fall.
If you want to keep your landscape beautiful and well-kept toward the end of the year, landscape design expert Backyard Reflections has some tips you should keep in mind.
Hydrate Your Greenery
Plants require the right amount of water to thrive, and different species and types of plants need varying levels of water. To keep your landscape thriving through late summer and early fall, it’s important to know how much water each kind of plant needs. When you’ve determined how much water is needed for all your plants, hydrate them regularly because the high temperatures of summer may have stressed them out.
Weeding, Pruning and Deadheading
To keep your landscape well-maintained and alive through this time of the year, you’ll need to do a lot of weeding, pruning and deadheading. Weeds sap the nutrients and water that are meant for your plants, and they grow more aggressively during fall. With that in mind, it’s best to control and remove them as much as you can before the new season arrives. Pruning is necessary to remove dead branches and leaves to promote new growth and prevent trees and shrubs from growing too much. Deadheading refers to removing the spent heads of your flowers to stimulate new growth.
Keep Your Landscaping Tools Maintained
Your pruning tools, gardening shears, lawnmowers, and other landscaping and gardening tools need to be properly maintained to keep them in good condition. While grass cutting tends to take a backseat during summer, the upcoming season will still cause your lawn to grow considerably, making it important to keep your lawnmower’s blade sharp and its internal machinery well-oiled.
