June-July Landscaping To-Do List

Summer is here and while you relax with friends and family, you’ll want to make sure that your landscaping is picture-perfect. To get you started, here are our Landscaping Tips for June.

  • Prune, transplant and up-pot houseplants early in June. Fertilize monthly.

  • Finish planting annuals in containers and in bare spots in your garden. Fertilize bulbs and most perennial flowers now.

  • Make sure all vines are being trained or tied to their arbors or stakes.

  • June 1 is when your first lawn fertilizer application should be made. If you fertilized in the spring, wait until early July.

  • Finish up your annual weed control before June. Herbicides become less effective as temperatures rise, but their vapors will spread, damaging other plants.

  • Sod installation is OK up to the second week in June.

  • Spring blooming shrubs (i.e. lilacs, forsythia) should be finished flowering by the end of June. This is the time to prune.

  • Once the soil has warmed (later in June), put a 2-to 4-inch layer of organic mulch on flowerbeds and around trees and shrubs. Mulch discourages weed growth, holds in soil moisture and maintains even soil temperatures.
