How To Keep Your Garden Looking Good All Summer
Having a beautiful garden to spend time in all summer is one of the perks of being able to be outside. Sometimes, though, weather conditions can make it hard to keep your lawn green and your plants looking their best. If you have a garden that suffers in the summer heat and are looking for ways to keep it green, even on the hottest days, read on. We have some practical suggestions that you can implement in your home.
Install an Irrigation System
One of the hardest things to do during a hot, dry summer is keep your grass green. Using a sprinkler can help, but to get water to the grassroots, you should install lawn irrigation systems. You can set the system up to a time that will water your lawn at the best times for the grass, saving you the trouble of getting up and dragging your hose around the lawn.
Weeds are just plants that grow where they aren’t supposed to. This means that they like all the same things that the plants you do want growing like. Weeds can pop up overnight and make your flowerbeds look untidy and overgrown. Make sure to weed regularly to keep on top of those unwanted visitors.
Don’t Mow Your Grass Too Low
Grass grows quickly in the summer so it is tempting to mow it low to minimize how often you need to mow. However, if you keep your grass at least 3 inches high, it will stay healthy while providing shade for the root system. This will help prevent a brown lawn in the middle of summer.
Having a nice garden takes time and patience, but when you put in the effort, you have a wonderful reward. Follow these tips for a lovely garden all summer long.
