Summer 2017
photo: Belva Barringer
Sights and sounds of summer have been with us for weeks. Heat-induced afternoon showers have ushered in beautiful colors, bees, butterflies, and all kinds of activity in landscapes. What signals summer for you? For some, vibrant Crepe Myrtles start the season. For others  Hydrangeas and fragrant gardenias reveal nature's elegant summer delights. For smaller landscapes, container gardens produce summer herbs and bounty such as tomatoes, blueberries, and raspberries.  More
Summer Check List
Summer Garden Tips
Fescue lawns are looking fairly good right now. Brown Patch fungus can flare up on Tall Fescue and Zoysia from recent rains and humid nights. We apply preventative treatments in June and July.

Weeds are here! We call a weed anything that is growing where it is not wanted. This summer a bumper crop of warm season weeds such as clover, ground ivy, nut sedge, and spurge are in full view. Regular mowing (usually 36 weeks out of 52 weeks) helps stop the weed cycle, but we also follow a pre and post-emergent weed control schedule. More

Check out the summer edition of  NC State Extension Gardner Newsletter for summer tips.

Maintaini ng consistent schedules and keeping up with specific needs are key to summer landscape health. Click on the months below for specifics on turf care and weed control applications typically performed during the season. Crews visit sites every week or as contracted, but it is amazing how quickly a plant can become distressed in summer conditions. Email support@barringerlandscape.com to address any unusual issues. 
  • June - Fertilizer, Broad leaf weed control, Fungicide
  • July-  3rd application of Fungicide if necessary
  • August - Organic soil supplement with iron
  • September - Fall Seeding ( aerate, overseed, fertilize)
Color All Summer

The official birthday flower of June is the lovely rose. Roses are the most popular flowers in the world and although all roses symbolize love and appreciation, the color of the flower petals have very specific meanings.


July birthday flower is the Water Lily, which represents purity and majesty.

Other colorful suggestions for your summer landscape include:
angelonias, begonias, caladiums, coleus, cosmos, lantanas, periwinkles, marigolds, New Guinea impatiens, petunias, rudbeckias, sweet potato vines, and zinnias. Remember to include a few fragrant favorites.
Summer Pine Needles & Mulch
Amazing Mulch
Mulch in flower or shrub beds and in bare spots is amazing at controlling weed seed germination. It also reduces soil temperature fluctuations. If you are not already scheduled, email Derek Kelly or call 704-335-3775 for more information on the summer application of pine needles or hardwood mulch.
