Ugh it's August
August is usually associated with one thing and one thing only. It is time to go back to school. This is not only a bummer for the kids but is also a bummer for the parents also. This can be a tough period to find time to maintain your landscaping so here are some extremely simple but important tasks to do in August.
Remove the Dead Stuff
During the hot summer/early fall months, you need to remove all dead and discolored blooms or leaves from your plants. This helps your plant by restarting the blooming process. If you had half of a dead arm and had the chance to regrow it back, wouldn't you want it to happen as soon as possible? Plants need to restart and recharge. This task is simple and can be done very quickly.
Time to Start Planting Fall Foods!
It is time to start planting/thinking about what fruits and veggies you would like for the fall. This task can be as simple or as hard as you make it out to be. Your garden can be as simple as one plant in a small pot or you could turn half of your backyard into a garden. Either way, you are doing great! Plant, watch them grow, and soon you will be able to enjoy!

I cannot stress this enough. Even though your lives are going to be busier, you still need to find time to water those plants and the lawn. Watering once or even twice a day is such a simple task but not a lot of people do it and the consequences show in a matter of weeks. No one likes dead grass or dead plants! It will only cost you more money in the long run if you do not water! SO KEEP ON WATERIN!!!
