The end of summer is just about here. Now is great time to see just how well your landscape did during the hottest parts of the year.
If you watered your landscape it likely survived most of the heat. The right plant selection, placement and good maintenance may have actually thrived during these hot days of summer and drought.
Walk around your landscape and observe anything that may need some attention. If you spot some brown areas it could mean not enough soil for moisture retention, wrong plant selection or wrong site, etc. More importantly, it is an easy way to identify areas that may need change. You may only need to replace grass with more drought-tolerant plants or even attractive patioscape. But always remember brown does not equal dead. Native species go dormant with dying.
Embrace the opportunity, fall is a great time to make changes that will help you create an attractive resilient and water-saving landscape for next season.
