Pretty Up Your Yard for the Summer!

Are you a nature lover? Do you love to spend time in your backyard during the summer? Spring and summer are the times when you can make the most out of your backyard. You can make it your cozy escape with loved ones, or a delightful garden retreat where you can enjoy peace and solitude! Implementing a few of these ideas can transform your boring backyard into an at-home getaway. Read on to learn more!

For Greener Grass Water Deeply, But Not Too Often

For those Prescottonians who sport a green, grassy yard. When you water your grass regularly, but only for a short period of time, the roots will not grow deep enough into the soil. This prevents grass from getting enough nutrients from the soil, making it more probable to die if you skip watering for a span of 2-3 days. However, when you water your grass deeply but not too often, the roots go as deep as 4-6 inches, causing them to get almost all the required nutrients and water from the soil, resulting in a lush green and delightful lawn!

Apply Weedicides in Mild Weather Conditions

Weedicides are absorbed through the leaves and then transported throughout the plant. When the weather is cold, weeds are generally dormant so the weedicides would produce negligible effects on them. The best time to use a weedicide is during mild weather, because this is the time when weeds are growing, and weedicides can eliminate them properly! Apply the weedicides when it is least probable to rain, so it does not wash away the weedicide before it can work!

Get Creative with the Vines

If directed properly, some vine plants can transform the look of your backyard completely. You can use vine supports to assist vines in growing where you want them to.. With a little creativity, vines could transform your whole backyard into an inviting, natural retreat.

Flower Bed Stones- The Game Changer!
