Which landscape products are hot this summer?
Summer is the season of backyard BBQs, neighborhood block parties, and spending time with friends and family in the sunshine. You work hard to keep your yard green and healthy all year long, but this is the best time to show it off. Here are a few extra ways to spruce up the backyard with simple landscape products for summer fun.
• If you have kids, it’s a good idea to keep mosquitos, fire ants and other pests at bay. There are many insecticides that when used properly are safe for family and pets. A natural fertilizer will help reduce weeds and is a gentler option on any barefoot traffic. And keeping the lawn trim will make it easier to install fun summer games like croquet, or maybe even lay out an impromptu picnic.
• Typical summer lawn height is between 2.5 and 3 inches. This offers protection from the heat of the sun without letting the blades get too tall. After mowing, return the clippings to the yard for extra nutrients.
• Irrigation is another important factor in summer lawn care. Watering requirements change from season to season. If you rely on an automatic irrigation system or other landscape product, be sure to adjust your settings to a more frequent level.
