A Lush Garden Despite the Summer Heat Cumming, GA
Professional Landscape Cumming GA

It won’t be long until the summer heat kicks in and your landscaping worries begin. The Georgia summers can certainly take toll on grasses, plants and flowers. However, you don’t have to settle for a faded and lackluster garden just because the temperatures got hot.

Here are some tips to ensure your garden remains cool, vibrant and lush during the heat of summer:

Irrigate Religiously
Giving your garden water is not something you want to miss during the hottest days of summer. In fact, you will likely need to increase the frequency and duration of your watering methods, whether this means dragging out the hose more often or adjusting the timer on your irrigation system. Keep in mind that watering in the early morning is the best way to drench dry roots before the sun evaporates your efforts.
Choose Blooms That Love the Heat
You may need to reconsider those delicate flowers from the spring. Instead, replace your faded pansies with a flower that can withstand the extra heat. Don’t worry; you won’t have to sacrifice color. Varieties such as ageratum, pentas, zinnia and Angelonia are beautiful summer bulbs with attractive pops of color.
Protect Your Grass
The key to keeping your grass dense and beautiful all season long is to be mindful of how short you are cutting your grass. Raising your mower blade can ensure your turf has enough leaf surface to protect itself from the harsh sun this summer.
Be Generous With Mulch
A plentiful, 2-inch layer of mulch in your garden keeps the underlying soil cool, moisturized and protected from strong sunshine. Let a landscaping expert help you decide which type of mulch is best. When plants are cooler, your garden is healthier and lusher!

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
