Getting Your Yard Ready for Summer

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Tuesday, 11 May , 2021

While there is not much difference in San Diego’s temperatures from winter to summer, summer is definitely a time when more people are enjoying the out-of-doors due to vacation time and other factors.  This year, we all realize that our normal schedules have been upended, so why not go ahead and take care of your summer yard needs early? 

Getting your yard summer-ready is a job that is best done before the rush hits in late May or early June.  At Juniper Landscape Company, we can help you get your yard in perfect shape to enjoy the lovely summer weather!

Getting Your Yard Summer Ready

You may be at a loss as to where to start, especially if your yard is a bit overgrown or neglected.  However, getting your yard ready for the season can be easy if you approach it in the right way.  Preparing your yard for the summer involves three steps:  assessment, repair, and replacement or addition. 

  • When you look at your yard, what areas are being unused?  Why?  Would your yard be more functional if certain things were added or removed?  Do some areas simply need a makeover?  These are all questions that you can answer with the help of a landscape design professional.  Simply removing what doesn’t work, adding things that do work, and remaking areas that are tired or overgrown can make a world of difference in your yard.
  • Are there gates in your fence that won’t open or won’t shut properly?  Are your water features in working order?  Are you facing broken paving stones or cracked concrete?  These are all common problems that plague homeowners and often can be fixed relatively easily with the help of a landscape professional.  The key to a functional, beautiful yard is having spaces that work, so any repairs that need to be made should be addressed before adding plants or other accessories.
  • This is the most design-intensive part of the process and often benefits from the advice of a seasoned professional.  What plants simply do not work in your yard, and what can you replace them with that will work well?  What features might enhance an area, such as a hardscape patio or walkway, and what features need to be removed?  Do you need to replace a sloping area with a retaining wall for maximum functionality?  These are all questions that should be addressed with your landscape professional so that you can create the right landscape plan for your unique needs.

At Juniper Landscape Company, we work with you to design the right yard for you and your family.  We know that no two San Diego homes or businesses are alike, and our goal is to provide you with a beautiful, functional landscape that speaks to your individual tastes and requirements.  We have been helping San Diego families and businesses create these types of yards and gardens for many years.  Call us today and speak with a landscape design professional about getting your yard ready for summer!

Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
