Your spring/summer gardening is finished and your autumn gardening hasn’t started yet. Kick back with a cool beverage and enjoy the fruits of your labor. This is the time to smell the roses.
After our wet June, hot, muggy early July weather, and the unpredictability from there forward, I recommend that you limit your gardening to just the essentials. Water when needed; mow the lawn when it needs mowing, and weed when you can’t stand looking at them. The rest of the time, admire your garden because autumn arrives all too soon in our area.
There are a few preventive measures that you can take in summer, but we recommend that you limit your role to simply dialing our number and leaving the work to the professionals. Our people work outside every day so they are acclimated to hot humid weather. They know how to keep hydrated and take frequent, short breaks.
Tree pruning and pest control are the two primary preventive measures in summer. If a limb breaks or a tree fails, it should be pruned or removed promptly before it can cause any further damage. We had a number of calls for lightning strikes after an early July storm. If, as you admire your landscape, one of your trees needs thinning or shaping, we can do that in summer as well.
Also, as you enjoy your landscape, any signs of insect damage should be taken care of immediately. Even if the pest is at a stage in its lifecycle where control is ineffective, we will be able to plan a strategy for dealing the pest long term.
Our people are also designing and installing landscapes all summer long. So, if you are dissatisfied with your present landscape, call us. The dog days of summer is the season when tree and landscape professionals work long and hard.
