Summer landscaping how-to

Summer is here — at least in Arizona! Don’t let all of your hard landscaping work go to waste (or to the heat)!


Here are  six easy how-tos you can follow to keep your landscaping looking its best from Phoenix Landscape Management:

1. Water your plants in the early morning or early evening.

2. Raise the cutting deck on your mower to reduce stress on turf.

3. Add a layer of mulch around your plants to help retain moisture.

4. Move potted plants to a shady place until the weather cools.

5. Refrain from pruning in extremely hot weather.

6. Monitor the condition of your landscape so that you can transplant any stressed plants to a new location once the heat wave has passed.
