Keep Your Lawn Green and Healthy
Healthy lawns are an important part of the backyard. They offer us a lovely green space to enjoy and relax in. Keeping your lawn in good condition does requires effort and dedication. One of the best ways to keep your lawn green is simply to water it. Yes, just that. No water- no life. Overwatering causes diseases. I just discovered that a section of my backyard is not getting its daily drinking and thus the leaves of the hedges started turning yellow. Simple drip irrigation or hand held nozzle will get you out there to rip the benefits of nature.
Pruning and Thinning Out Trees and Shrubs
Pruning and thinning out shrubs and trees is an effective way to maintain their overall health and appearance. If you are not sure how to do this yourself, then getting a tree service or a regular yard maintenance company can help. Even, if you want to tackle this yourself, it helps to do it in the right way.
To prune, you can make sure that you remove stems that grow in the wrong direction (not uniformed), cut back branches that grow too close together and remove any dead, diseased or broken branches on a tree or shrub. It is also a great idea to thin out wilted seedlings from your shrubbery by cutting them off at ground level every year. For example: our Florida palms shed so many little tree nuts or fruits that it clogs the yards, pathways or sometimes the pool. These fruit clusters are best to be cut.
Make it a very green day, my dear friends,
