August Maintenance Tips

August is the best time to pay someone else to mow your yard! 100+ degree weather is no fun!

  • August stinks! Don’t get heat stroke, pay us to mow your yard
  • Best time to trim trees besides January because trees are dormant from the heat and there is no exposure to the oakwilt beetle
  • Keep mower blades high
  • De-head spent blooms on crepe myrtles to encourage blooming again
  • Start bringing hydromulching to an end
  • Fertilize grass
  • Spray insects in the morning hours only
  • Water yard daily in early morning with the last station going off at sunriseĀ or as water restrictions dictate
  • Hanging baskets by now need water twice a day
  • Not much else to do but stay cool!
