A Mid-Summer Landscape Dream

July is coming to a close, and the mid-summer season is here! With only a month of major heat left, pretty soon autumn will be well on its way. This is the prime time for last minute family vacations and back to school preparations. As life continues to get busy, it’s important to make sure that your commercial lawn space is kept in tip- top shape for this busy season. Here are a few tips we came up with to help maintain your Westchester, NY commercial landscaping during the mid-summer season!

Soak up the water

Continue to water your lawn or outdoor space on a regular basis. Mid- July through August is a prime time for heat, so be sure to water your plants every week. About one inch of water is all your lawn needs to get through these mid-summer heat waves.

Prune your trees

Pruning the trees around your commercial space is typically done in early spring and mid-winter, however if you are noticing overlapping branches in the summertime, it’s important to call in a tree service so that can be handled right away. Pruning your trees can help prevent branch overlapping and tangling on your property.

Service your lawnmower

Grass growth tends to slow down due to the intense heat in mid-summer, but as temperatures drop your commercial lawn will surely need some additional attention. It’s important to service your lawnmower; make sure the blade is sharpened, the oil and spark plug are inspected, and that everything is running smoothly. A suggestion we have is to hire a professional lawn mowing service because this is your commercial landscape after all. Hiring a company to take care of these tasks can give you more time to focus on your business!

Be on pest control

Summertime is when the insects roam free and can take over your commercial landscape. It’s important to grab a hold of organic solutions and safe pesticides that can be sprayed on your property to avoid an insect infestation that, if not under control, can cause major problems both on the outside of your business and even in the inside!
