Did someone say vacation? Yes! Summertime is undoubtedly popular for vacations since the kids are out of school and the weather is warm.
If you’re anything like us though, you may worry about your lawn and plants while you’re gone. You don’t want things to die after all the hard work you’ve put into them!
So, we’ve compiled a few tips on how to prepare your yard for skipping town.
Mow the Day Before You Leave
Lower the height on your mower to get a closer cut, and mow right before you leave. That way, your grass doesn’t get too unruly while you’re gone. Be sure that if it does grow tall while you’re gone, to never cut more than 1/3 of the grass off at a time or you may kill it completely.
Ask a Someone to Water for You
Have a neighbor or friend water while you’re gone. Newly planted shrubs and a vegetable garden are probably at the highest risk of drying out. Having someone to keep an eye on things can guarantee everything stays alive and healthy.
Install a Water Timer
You can purchase a programmable water time to also water your plants outdoors. It can be used for drip systems, soaker hoses and sprinklers that are connected to the outdoor faucets and you can activate it according to the requirements of your lawn which may be daily or multiple times a week.
