Summer is here and it’s just going to get hotter! Is your Orlando or Tampa landscape ready for this type of weather? The intense heat can take a toll on your properties curb appeal. Baker Commercial Landscape can help keep your property looking its best!
The sprinkler system is your landscapes best friend this time of year. It doesn’t take long, one day you’re driving into the parking lot and see an unsightly patch of dead grass. Turns out the irrigation system is not working properly. Your plants, shrubs, trees, lawn, flowers, all need water to survive. It’s more cost effective to have the latest technology, controls and sensors, instead of having to replace elements in the landscape later.
Now more than ever, it is important to have your irrigation system audited. Making sure all the proper zones are being covered as well as making sure they are getting sufficient water by readjusting irrigation heads. Check for any broken nozzles or heads. If you plan on retrofitting your irrigation system, think about installing drip lines. Delivering the right amount of water directly to the roots will conserve water.
To make that lasting impression, your shrubs and trees should be professionally trimmed for an attractive, clean look. With all the rain this spring, many shrubs and trees are growing out of control. They can quickly turn into a hazard.
Planting the proper plants, those that will flourish in Florida’s heat and humidity can save time and money. As the temperature continues to rise, even well established plants start to feel the stress. Mulch is a great way for your plants to survive the heat. It just takes 2 to 3 inches of mulch around flowering plants, shrubs and trees to add significant curb appeal while maximizing insulation for the root systems. Also, a properly maintained irrigation system, watering in the early morning hours to allow for the least amount of evaporation.
