3 Summer Watering Tips for Your Georgia Plants Cumming , GA
Sprinklers watering lawn and flowers in a garden.

If you’ve live in the Atlanta area, you know that the summertime heat is nothing to dismiss. With average daily temperatures in the high 80s and 90s, summer in Georgia can be a scorcher. While you can personally find some shade, a pool or indoor air conditioning to get relief from the heat, your plants are not as fortunate.

The relentless heat doesn’t mean your landscape is doomed to suffocate. However, it does make it more important than ever to water your landscaping efficiently. This should include conserving water when possible and making sure your watering efforts are maximized and not wasted.

At Everlast Lawns and Landscapes, here are the top three watering suggestions we give Georgians in the summer:

#1 Only water when needed

Did you know that more plants are killed by overwatering rather than under watering. This isn’t to say your plants won’t need extra moisture under the summer sun, but a good soak once a week may be all that is needed. Learn how to check your soil for dryness before you turn on your hose or sprinkler system.

#2 Water in the morning

If you water your landscape before the sizzling sun makes its debut, you can maximize your irrigation efforts. Morning watering prevents wasted water from evaporation as well as allows your lawn enough time to absorb the water before the temperature drops again at night. A lawn that stays wet during the night is more vulnerable to fungus and disease.

#3 Water the roots, not the leaves

Not only is it important to know how much and when to water, but you should also understand how to water. The simple technique of watering your roots instead of the leaves of your plants can make your watering task more helpful than harmful.

Eliza Barnhill

So far so good! Found Everlast through Next Door and signed up for monthly service. After meeting with Chris we learned about their other services and got new landscape lights installed and some cleanup work in the front and backyard. Happy to say the lights look amazing, and the initial cleanup was so promising that we’re on our second round of projects with them in just a couple weeks. Great personalized service and they’ve addressed any issues and requests that have popped up along the way. Excited to see the final product once it’s all finished.

Amanda Miller

Chris and team did an awesome job on our landscaping project. They had great ideas, were easy to work with and took time to listen to what we wanted to accomplish. The staff was always prompt, took care of our property and were very professional. I would highly recommend them, as the finished project looks great and their prices are very reasonable.

Ebba Hansen

Starting using them last spring for weekly mowing and trim. I’ve been very happy with the job they’ve done. Competitively priced. Just hired to overseed the backyard. They scheduled and completed the job quickly. Very professional.

Rich Markham

Chris was on time for the initial estimate. Gave us a fair price. Guys did the job on schedule. Had a little issue, but Chris got the team out to resolve quickly. Highly recommend this company.

Andrea Carver

I loved working with Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. I had an eyesore of a retaining wall that I hated. Working with Chris to redesign it with Allen blocks made such a difference. I appreciate his expertise and patience answering all my questions promptly and completely. Great job.

Deborah Woodworth

We highly recommend Everlast Lawn and Landscapes. We are new to the area, we saw their truck at a neighbors home and called them. Friendly, professional and prompt. They did a fantastic job on the clean up of our backyard and we are happy with the weekly lawn maintenance. But just as importantly we really appreciate their timely responses to any inquiry we may have had.
