Summer Tips and Tricks | Yard and Plant Maintenance

Hello Summer (finally!) ☀️ Here are a few tips and tricks on how to keep your yard and plants stay alive and healthy during the warmer months of the year.

 

 

 

We wanted to take a quick moment to share a few tips on how to help your yard and plants stay alive and healthy in accordance with your lease agreement, as applicable.

For those of you with sprinkler systems, please recall that our lease indicates it is the resident’s responsibility to set the timers on the controller to adequately water the landscaping.   Please let your Property Manager know if your system is not running properly and we will evaluate and make repairs as needed.

For those of you with lawns, it is best to water daily (unless it is raining) one time for approximately 10 minutes in the morning before 7am. If you have newly planted shrubs, trees, or lawns (planted in the last year), please water at least 3 times per week until their root systems are established. Water each plant individually and give them enough water so the root ball gets thoroughly wet.  The root ball is generally the same size underground as the foliage above ground.  Water the roots, don’t just wet down the leaves. A hose with a shower nozzle works well for this task.

We hope you enjoy the summer weather!
