July Landscaping Tips

July has plenty of challenges; protecting landscapes from intense heat, severe weather, and annoying pests – it’s not always an easy task! Here are some landscaping tips to keep in mind during July so that you can keep your yard thriving even during the most intense and unpredictable summer months:

  • Spot spray any weeds, mow and water the lawn as needed; continue through the summer.
  • Pay attention to the water needs of lawns, ornamental plants and vegetables, and especially new plants with undeveloped root systems and to outdoor potted plants, which can dry out quickly. Water in the early morning hours to minimize evaporation.

  • Prune dead or broken branches of trees and shrubs; avoid major pruning during the heat of summer.
  • Continue to check ornamentals, flowers, and vegetables for aphids and spider mites.
  • Inspect broadleaf evergreen shrubs for scale insects, and treat as necessary.
  • Watch for lace bugs on azaleas, pyracantha and lantana.
  • Fertilize hanging baskets and other container plants regularly.
  • To reduce mosquito pests, check house gutters and any containers for standing water.
