Watering has Resumed!
Start by watering the grass and flower beds TWICE per week at 5am and again at 6am. This specific timing will help to avoid issues with fungus caused by our high humidity.
Please, be aware that this recommendation will be updated often as the temperatures start to rise.
Grass is starting to grow. Give it a hand by LIGHTLY RAKING dead and dry grass blades, and also, by removing tree leaves and debris. This will give the grass space to breathe and get enough sunlight.
This is a good time to heavily trim any bushes or trees before it gets too hot. Also, mulching is recommended.
Inspect your irrigation system now to make sure all areas of the lawn and beds are getting enough water. Do not wait until Summer to do any repairs or it can be too late. At GreenER, we can assist you with the Irrigation schedule.
If you are looking into getting new flowers, ones that we recommend are IMPATIENTS. Impatients grow in the Spring, Summer and Fall. There are two varieties to choose from depending on your needs: For shade areas and full sun. LANTANAS are a good option too. These are perennials, can grow in full sun and can be planted around big trees.
Do any planting before it gets too hot. New grass, plants and flowers must be established before Summer arrives.
