As the days grow longer and the temperatures rise, the anticipation of summer fun begins to build. Your outdoor space becomes the heart of leisure, entertainment, and relaxation. Preparing your landscape for the warm weather ahead is crucial to ensure your property is both beautiful and functional for all the summer activities you have planned. At Exscape Designs, our expertise in transforming outdoor spaces equips us to offer essential tips for getting your landscape summer-ready, from comprehensive lawn care to bespoke pool installation.

Summer Ready: Essential Tips for Preparing Your Landscape for Warm Weather Fun

Summer Landscape Preparation

Pre-Summer Landscape Inspection

The journey to a summer-ready landscape begins with a thorough inspection. This critical first step allows our team to identify any winter damage to plants, trees, and hardscapes. We meticulously check for signs of distress in your lawn or garden beds, such as areas of sparse growth or disease, and examine your irrigation system for leaks or inefficiencies. Addressing these issues early ensures your landscape is primed for summer growth and activity.

Lawn Care for Summer

A lush, green lawn is the foundation of a beautiful summer landscape. At Exscape Designs, we provide a tailored approach to transitioning your lawn care from spring to summer, involving several key strategies:

  • Adjust Your Mowing Height: We keep your grass slightly taller in the summer to protect roots from the heat and reduce the growth of weeds.
  • Water Wisely: Our team implements early morning watering strategies to minimize evaporation and ensure deep soil penetration. We emphasize the importance of efficient irrigation management, adjusting schedules according to the weather and the specific needs of your landscape.
  • Fertilize Appropriately: We use slow-release fertilizers to nourish your lawn throughout the summer months, carefully avoiding over-fertilization, which can lead to excessive growth and additional stress on your grass.

Outdoor Space Enhancement

Pool Installation

Adding a pool is a transformative way to elevate your summer enjoyment. Whether you’re considering an in-ground or above-ground pool, Exscape Designs guides you through every step of the design and installation process. We ensure your new pool not only complements the aesthetics of your landscape but also meets your family’s needs. Our comprehensive planning includes safety features, privacy landscaping, and updates to your patio or decking to accommodate poolside activities.

Refresh Your Plantings

We recommend incorporating vibrant, summer-blooming plants into your garden to add color and interest. Our preference for native plants ensures that your landscape thrives with minimal water usage and attracts beneficial pollinators. We also suggest adding shade trees or pergolas to create comfortable, cool areas for relaxation and entertainment.

Upgrade Your Outdoor Living Spaces

Summer is the ideal time to enhance your outdoor living areas. We specialize in adding or updating features such as outdoor kitchens, fire pits, or comfortable seating areas, creating functional and inviting spaces that extend your home’s living area into the outdoors, perfect for summer gatherings.

Irrigation Management

Efficient irrigation is paramount during the hot summer months. We advise the use of smart irrigation systems that adjust automatically based on rainfall and soil moisture levels, ensuring your landscape receives the right amount of water without waste. Our regular inspections of sprinkler heads and drip irrigation lines prevent clogs or leaks, maintaining optimal irrigation performance.
