Tips and Tricks for a Beautiful June Landscape

While the first official day of summer is not until the summer solstice on June 21, you are probably already feeling the warming effects of the summer sun. It is important to keep in mind that the lawn that your children and pets play on is probably feeling the summer sun as well. Even though it is hot outside, don’t neglect your landscape or lawn if you want to keep it looking beautiful and fully enjoy your outdoor living space. Our summer landscaping tips cover June, July, and August. While in the month of June, here are some things that you should focus on in order to keep that beautiful outdoor environment:

  • Mow, trim and edge lawn areas.Untitled design-8
