Hello Rain! So glad you are coming!

Rain will be a nice reprieve from the dryness we have been experiencing. But here are a few more pointers for our continued heat…

Tips to consider during this hot summer season!

  • Make sure you have a sufficient layer of mulch in your beds, to hold moisture in.

  • St. Augustine lawns: in order to reduce stress, cut no more than 1/3 of the blade at a time.

  • Everything has needed more water. When you make changes to your irrigation system, monitor for several days up to a couple of weeks. Check plants in the morning.

  • Those with no irrigation system: a good weekly watering when we are in drought conditions will help keep everything healthy, warding off pests and decease.

  • If your Hibiscus is getting too large, only trim 1/4 to 1/3 at a time to reduce stress.

  • Don’t worry if a few leaves start to fall off Oleanders and some trees, it’s normal with the heat; self-preservation. A lot of leaf drops could be too much water.

  • Do not apply heavy portions of fertilizer

Worms! Who knew?

Open tent caterpillar webs in trees, and birds will eat the worms. Worms will not harm healthy trees.

Cut off rolled-up Canna leaves at the base and destroy them, this will get rid of the larva inside.

Spread earthworms in your lawn and beds, they do wonders!

Water Gardens ~ ~ ~

Remove decaying leaves and spent blossoms. Fertilize every 2 weeks.

Here at Beck Landscaping, we wish you a safe and Happy 4th of July Season!
