Tips and Tricks for Summer 2018 Landscaping
Take advantage of all the sunshine and plant summer ready vegetables.
Who doesn't love fresh vegetables? Bypass having to make the trip to the farmers market this year and have fun growing your own vegetables. Just be strategic when choosing the vegetable to plant in the warmer temperatures. Choose vegetables that grow well in the heat, such as sweet potatoes, okra, eggplant, or chili peppers.

Water your plants and grass.
Clearly, the temperatures are warmer in the summer, while it's always important to keep your plants and grass watered on a regular basis - it is especially important in the summer. You don't want to waste money on beautiful plants and lush looking grass to just have it fry in this summer heat.
Fertilize your grass.
Help your lawn grow in these warmer temperatures with some fertilizer. Not sure what type of fertilizer to choose? When in doubt, ask a landscape expert in Lake Ozark.
Give your landscape some color with some summer flowers.
Beautiful flowers in your landscape can be eye-catching and bring a sense of excitement to YOUR paradise. Choose flowers that thrive in warmer temperature. For example, here are a few summer annuals to look into:
Discard dead hanging limbs on your trees.
Dead limbs can fall and do serious damage to your roof or whatever may be around that particular tree. Storms happen in the summer and can cause the dead limbs to fall. Do yourself a favor and cut these limbs down before they fall.
Have a retaining wall installed.
Is your backyard on an incline? Retaining walls can hold back water and give your yard some dimension.
Add a water feature.
Water features, such as fountains or ponds, can attract beautiful wildlife to your yard this summer.
