Sun, wind, and heat can be brutal to unsuspecting landscapes. Now is the time to tackle a few simple tasks to help it weather the inevitable scorching temps.
- Insect populations are at their peak now. But remember: not all bugs are bad bugs so be careful what pesticides you use. You want to keep the good bugs in your garden.
- Keep the lawn mower blades sharpened as the lawn will likely require weekly mowing to reduce weeds.
- Perennial plants such as crape myrtle are likely very showy right now — keep them that way by deadheading any spent flowers to keep them blooming.
