Chandler, AZ, August 09, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Tempe landscaping company, Corona Landscape, recommends Valley homeowners think carefully about how they will maintain their landscaping during the hot summer months. Some maintenance will be required. However, most varieties of plants and trees should be left alone.
The company advises metro-Phoenix homeowners to increase watering for grass and plants. With extreme summer temperatures, landscaping will require additional water to survive and flourish.
Bermuda grass should be watered every three days in July and every four days during August. To use water wisely, homeowners should water in the early morning or late evening. Watering during mid-day when temperatures are the highest causes excess evaporation.
To ensure proper growth, water must also reach the grass roots. This level is about 10 inches below ground.
Some trees and plants should not be trimmed during the summer unless absolutely necessary. For example, homeowners must refrain from trimming fruit trees to avoid damaging them. However, date palm trees and Mexican fan palms will most likely need some pruning. These trees can be safely trimmed during periods of extreme heat.
“With the exception of increasing water, mowing lawns and doing some trimming on certain palm trees, landscape maintenance should be kept to a minimum,” said Ed Bambauer, owner of Corona Landscape.
