Summer is Among Us

Ah, summer. The season most of us have been waiting for! The plants and flowers are in full bloom, the trees have gained their leaves, lawns have grown in, and the beauty is endless.

Most of the summer is spent outside and you want to make sure your yard is looking great. Just like cleaning that needs to be done inside the house to keep it nice, presentable, and relaxing, your yard should also be well taken care of.

Most services offered by landscape companies in the spring carry over into the summer; bush, shrub and tree pruning, flower planting, mulch and landscape installation, hardscape installation, driveway repair and general yard clean ups. Installing lawns can be done, however, they need a little more care in this hot weather as opposed to doing a spring installation. As always, we here at J&D Landscapes are available to answer your summer service questions on what may or may not be offered at this time.

If your yard isn’t looking quite up to par yet this year, you should consider making some extra time to spruce it up a bit, or just give us a call and we’d be happy to do it for you!
