Gardening in Late Summer
Bergen County Landscaping Services
With the end of August just two weeks away, this is the time to start thinking and planning what you will need to do over the next few months to prepare your garden and landscaped beds for next year. But enough of that, summer is still upon us and we do have a couple of months to go of good weather in which to enjoy our gardens. The following are a few tips and tasks that should be completed over the next few weeks to enhance and prolong your gardens.
2. Perennials, Annuals and other flowering plants. Spend as much time as you can deadheading as this should mean they will continue to flower longer into the summer season. Any spring flowering perennials can be divided and moved now as well but you must sure you water them well after.
3. Any summer flowering shrubs that have finished flowering can now be pruned and shaped.
4. Keep watering the lawn well and start to think about raising the height of the cut towards the end of september. Also if we do have another hot spell don’t cut the grass so short as longer grass offers more shade to the roots and so won’t dry out so fast.
5. Keep on top of the weeds and try to remove them early before they can go to seed again. Weeds will deprive you plants of nutrients and water.
