June Landscaping Tips

June is a great time to finish planting gardens, containers and hanging baskets and then spend time relaxing on your deck, porch or patio enjoying the beautiful colors. Here’s a few tips to help you start summer on the right foot!

  • Put down an organic fertilizer.
  • Apply extra pine straw or shredded bark mulch around newly planted trees and shrubs. The extra mulch will reduce water loss and heat stress to the new roots.
  • Prune out any dead or broken branches of trees and shrubs but avoid major pruning during summer heat.
  • Apply extra pine straw or shredded bark mulch around newly planted trees and shrubs. The extra mulch will reduce water loss and heat stress to the new roots.
  • Cut back spent flowers of annuals and perennials to encourage new blooms.
  • Pay attention to hanging baskets and containers, because they dry out more quickly with the warmer temperatures.
  • Irrigate plants at dawn and dusk to reduce water loss from evaporation.
  • Watch for the water needs of new lawns, trees, ornamentals and new plantings as hot dry weather sets in.
  • Plant perennials such as coreopsis, salvia, yarrow, coneflowers, peonies, bee balm, ferns, hosta and many others.
  • Check ornamentals, flowers, and vegetables for spider mites, prevalent in warm months. Watch for bagworms on junipers, arborvitae and other conifers, and treat as needed. Watch for webworms on trees and treat as necessary.
  • Apply fungicide as necessary to control black spot and powdery mildew on roses.
