Landscape gardening in the summer

Summer is the time of year when most gardeners start to see the fruits of their labour come to life. As a landscape gardener it is essential to keep the garden trees, lawn, pond and any other garden features in clean neat and tidy order.

Gardening to me is one of the most rewarding jobs to be in, watching your garden grow trimming pruning and weeding as necessary. I always start by mowing the lawn as this makes a huge difference to the overall look of the garden. By now most Garden Plants will have either flowered, started to flower or start to bear fruit.

Although the plants and fruits may not be ripe yet, you will start to see growth spurts and you can begin to nurture your plants and flowers spraying pesticides, pruning and using any other means to deter rodents and insects from eating through your lovely garden. If you have a pond in your garden, summer would be a great time to clean it, as taking care of the pond is not as daunting as it looks.

Keep the water relatively clear and clean out some of the vegetation that has built up. Avoid using chemicals to get rid of any weeds as using chemicals can harm the creatures and insects that live alongside your fish.
