Chandler, AZ, May 02, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Tempe landscaping company, Corona Landscape, (www.coronalandscape.com) has outlined several guidelines for preparing for the fast-approaching summer months. Arizona homeowners should focus on fertilizing lawns, planting new plants and increasing water usage.
During the latter part of April and beginning of May, the company suggests homeowners begin fertilizing their lawns, especially if they were not over-seeded in the winter. However, homeowners must be careful not to over-fertilize. Doing so will require more frequent watering and mowing.
To avoid complications, homeowners must water and fertilize at the appropriate frequencies. Applying fertilizer too liberally or too often is unhealthy for the lawn and environment. For example, no lawn should be fertilized more than once per month. In addition, lawns should be fertilized in the early morning or evening and then watered thoroughly after application. Referring to the manufacturer’s directions on the package will help avoid over-fertilizing.
During the month of April, homeowners should focus on planting new shrubs, trees, flowers and summer gardens. In addition, increasing water to more sensitive trees and plants is important to prepare for the coming heat.
“In preparing for summer, homeowners can begin to gradually increase water usage during April and May,” said Ed Bambauer, owner of Corona Landscape. “Summer lawns require regular watering to maintain health. A recommended time frame is typically every three days during the summer months and allowing water to reach between eight to ten inches into the soil.”
