Learn more about four of the must-have services for your lawn and landscape this summer.

1. Consistent lawn mowing is absolutely vital.

Your grass needs to be mowed consistently throughout the entire growing season. Without a proper mowing schedule, it may grow to be too tall and you could end up cutting off more of it than is recommended. Especially during the warm summer months, you should keep the lawn at a height of about 3.5-4 inches so that the grass can protect the soil and its roots from the heat of the summer sun. This is vital, otherwise the soil and roots can end up getting scorched.

2. Install mulch to keep plants protected.

Many appreciate mulch for its aesthetic appeal in a landscape bed, but it also has many other benefits. If you did not get mulch installed in the spring, then you need to have it put in during the summer for a few reasons:

  • The mulch will insulate the plants, keeping the roots cooler from the sun.
  • It will also help to retain moisture so that water does not evaporate away before the plants can absorb that much needed moisture.
  • Mulch works to prevent weed growth, and those plants can sap up nutrients that your landscape plants need.

At Beautiful Blooms, LLC, we offer beautiful organic mulch options such as hemlock, shredded oak, and standard hardwood mulch.

3. Mosquito control treatments ensure you and your loved ones are safe from pests.

Starting in May, it is recommended to apply an all-natural mosquito control treatment to keep these pests away from you and your loved ones. Their bites are itchy and can transmit diseases. Typically, our mosquito season in Wisconsin runs from May through October, so make sure you keep scheduling treatments every 30 days throughout those months, especially during the summer. You need to keep yourself protected from these insects and you should also be able to spend time outside worry-free.

4. Fertilization and weed control applications work to make your lawn healthy.

Applications of fertilizer and weed control during the year are crucial to the health of your lawn. These two treatments are vital, as fertilizer provides important nutrients and the weed control helps to eliminate nuisance plants that steal those nutrients from your lawn. We apply fertilizer and weed control throughout the spring, summer, and fall to supply your yard with everything it needs to thrive during the year.
