Summer is here, bringing longer days, warmer weather, and the perfect opportunity to transform your outdoor space into a vibrant oasis. At Jensen Gardens, we believe that a well-maintained landscape enhances not only the beauty of your home but also your enjoyment of the summer season. To help you make the most of these sunny months, we’ve put together a summer landscape checklist to help keep your yard looking its best all summer long.

  • Trim Shrubs
    • Trim spring flowering shrubs:
      • Lilacs
      • Viburnum
      • Forsythia
  • Pruning
    • Cut back spring perennials and bulbs to re-bloom:
      • Catmint
      • Salvia
      • Geraniums
  • Weeding
    •  Keep weeds under control to prevent them from stealing nutrients from your plants. Regular weeding sessions can prevent them from becoming overwhelming.
  • Garden Maintenance
    • Add 1-2″ of grass clippings or wood mulch to garden beds to prevent weeds.   A layer or organic matter also prevents blossom rot on tomatoes
  • Harvest
    • Harvest all cool-season vegetables:
      • Peas
      • Carrots
      • Lettuce
      • Radishes
  • Patio Maintenance 
    • Power wash pavers, apply joint sand as needed
    • Power wash concrete patio to remove dirt and debris
