Bruce Township, MI Summer Landscape Tips

The summer season is in full swing now! The winds are blowing and the flowers are blossoming! But what about your garden? How does it look? Your garden can look like a picture on the back of a postcard if you work with a professional lawn maintenance company. Their teams are experienced and can help you with all landscaping tasks, be it cutting the grass, watering your plants, or selecting the best flowers for the season.

In the meantime, let us share a few effective landscaping tips with you for a picture-perfect garden.

Plant Some Colorful Flowers

Flowers look so beautiful and are definitely an essential element of every garden. Plant them along the pathways, edges, center and wherever appropriate. Cover your porch, driveway and even the edges off your pool with pretty flowers.

But what kind of flowers should you plant? Which of them are most suitable for Michigan’s climate? Working with a reliable lawn care company will help guide you on the best flowers to plant this summer.

Do the Fences Look Dull?

Grow some vines on them! Vines featuring pretty blue, purple and yellow colored flowers make your home look more inviting and welcoming. So try growing them on the gate, fences and even walls.

Water the Plants

Experts at professional lawn care companies advise that you should water plants early during the hot days. The most ideal time is morning hours, but if you’re busy, you can do this in the afternoon as well.  It is advised that you do not water later than that. This decreases mildew and fungal attack risks. Also, this ensures that you stay away from mosquitoes which may start appearing when the sun is about to set down.

Protect Roses, Produce and Similar Plants

Mildew is known to attack pumpkin, melon, cucumber, zucchini and roses. Protect these plants by spraying a mixture of water and cow milk in a ration of 10:1. Do this weekly and after heavy rainfall.  Keep in mind that this remedy won’t reverse the effect of mildew damage that has already occurred, but nonetheless, it’s a great preventative tip.

Invite the Birds

Bird baths and bird houses are often a nice addition to any garden. So place them in a suitable location, preferably somewhere in the center.

Display Some Pretty Outside Lights

Your garden shouldn’t only look pretty during the day, but at night as well. So invest in some great looking outdoor lamps that introduce a curb appeal. Turn them on when the sun sets to light up the pathways, the porch and the driveway.  There are many different lighting options available, and working with a professional Bruce Township, MI landscape company can help you decide what type of lighting will best fit your needs.
