When June comes to Maryland, there is no doubt that it is summer. The weather gets hot, the plants grow in full force, and nature is abundant. With this season, the hot weather can be harsh, but June is also the month that kicks off one’s regular summer landscaping practices. Below are several June landscaping tips for Maryland gardens.
Water Trees & Shrubs
If you have newly-planted trees and shrubs, it is recommended to water them well for about two years. Watering them directly and adding fertilizer will help these plants establish their roots. Adding compost around the base of your trees and shrubs can also help with keeping the root systems moist.
Summer Lawn Care
Grass will be growing in all its glory in the summer, and one’s June landscaping tips will include how to take care of your lawn during the hottest time of year. One can begin watering the lawn two or three times a week and mowing the grass a little longer to protect it from the harsh sun and diseases.
Prune Spring Flowers
Spring bulb flowers are typically spent by June in Maryland and ready for you to deadhead them. Remove the dead flower heads and cut back iris stalks to the base while leaving the leaves alone. Only after the leaves of any flowers have wilted can you cut the plant back entirely.
If you are planting any warm-season flowers in your garden, you still have an opportunity to do so in June. You can still start some summer-blooming flowers by seed or plant summer-blooming perennials directly in the ground. With proper care, you can develop a beautiful summer garden.
