Seven Watering Tips To Help Your Landscaping Thrive All Summer
Maintaining a lush garden and lawn isn’t always as simple as relying on Mother Nature and regular rain. During the peak of summer when temperatures in Illinois can hit 90 degrees or more, even a few days without rainfall can impact plants and grass. But don’t worry…watering wisely and properly can ensure beautiful surroundings without draining precious resources. By following these seven watering tips, your landscaping can look cool even when things heat up.
7. Cool Off
Here’s a watering tip that’s often overlooked: keep your water cool. When your hose sits in the sun all day, the water gets warm—even hot—which can potentially damage plants. So always store hoses in a cool place to maintain an optimal water temperature. And to keep your landscaping from overheating, water earlier in the day and not during the peak sunshine.
Maintaining green grass, a glowing garden and lush landscaping takes a little work…and just the right amount of irrigation. These seven tried-and-true watering tips can help guarantee your surroundings stay vibrant all season—even if Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate.
