3 Lawn & Garden Tips for the Summer Months, Foristell, Missouri

Now that summer is approaching, you’re probably wondering how to keep your lawn and garden looking its best. Fortunately for residents of Foristell, MO, Vehige Enterprises can help you maintain a vibrant and healthy landscape. Here, they share a few tips to ensure you’re at the top of your game this summer. 

3 Ways to Keep the Lawn & Garden Looking Gorgeous

1. Water Early

Certain types of plants, such as roses and cucumbers, are more susceptible to mildew growth than others. One way to prevent this from occurring is to water plants early in the day; by nightfall, they’ll be completely dry. Watering early can also keep mosquitoes at bay, which are active at night and in the late afternoon. 

2. Pull Weeds When They’re Young

Also, take care of weeds before they disperse their seeds; this prevents them from spreading. That way, you’ll create less work for the future.

3. Protect New Plants

The sun can be too harsh for new plants, which may impact their growth. However, there are steps you can take to protect them, which lets them acclimate to the sun’s rays until they’re stronger. Reduce the effects of the sun by providing shade with broad leaves from other plants or shade cloths, which are designed to let a specific amount of light access plants.
