Landscaping Tips Ideal For Florida Weather
Are you planning on doing some spring cleaning in your yard? Now is the perfect time to inspect your lawn and landscaping for any areas that need improvement. Perhaps you have suffered damage from a prior rainstorm and have postponed making the necessary changes. Maintaining outdoor landscaping can be challenging in our climate. We experience extremely high heat in the summer along with heavy rainfall and the possibility of a hurricane or heavy winds. It is important to have landscaping that is appealing while being able to withstand the elements.
We want to share some landscaping tips that will have your Florida properly looking magnificent this spring and summer:
Put the Right Plant in the Right Place
If you are adding any shrubs or plants to your property, it is important to be sure you follow the directions for the type of plant and place it in a location in your yard where it will thrive. Be mindful of the placement of the sun as well as where the irrigation system is located.
Attract or Repel Wildlife
It is important to determine if you are welcoming to wildlife that may be looking for a place to stay, especially with all of the new homes and retail development being added to our area. You may want to invest in a birdhouse and a spot where you can have a water feature. While it can be difficult to keep out birds, if you are looking to keep wildlife off your property, you may have to invest in fencing.
If you have an irrigation system, be sure that it is working properly and watering the grass and landscaping. If you have recently added flowers, shrubs, or trees and need additional sprinkler heads, be sure to contact us, and we will be happy to help.
