Tucson’s summer monsoons are known for creating destruction around town. Do not let your yard be among the areas of post-monsoon wreckage. With the following tips and the help of your Tucson landscaping company, you can make sure your yard will survive this year’s monsoon season.
Stake Your Trees
You should keep your smaller trees staked, especially during the monsoon season. If you have new trees that are still growing, they need the extra support of being tied to a wooden or metal stake. Even mature trees with a narrow trunk should be staked during heavy storms. When Tucson monsoons start, your small and growing trees will need that support more than ever. A stake can prevent a tree from falling over. As a tree falls over, branches may become broken, roots may become damaged, and nearby property could incur damage, as well.
Trim Your Trees
To keep your trees looking full and healthy year-round, your Tucson landscaping company should periodically prune them. Before the monsoon season starts, your trees should be pruned to prevent possible damage to branches and your property. Your Tucson landscaper can identify potential problem areas on or around your trees and address these areas before the monsoons begin.
Create Efficient Drainage
Due to the heavy rain pour during monsoons, water can collect in flatter areas around your yard. These puddles and pools can attract mosquitoes, rot, and other potential problems for your property. Consult with your Tucson landscaping company about efficient ways to create drainage in your yard. This might include grading your property to allow for water runoff away from your yard. A potential drainage solution that can benefit your yard and landscaping, may include allowing monsoon water runoff to collect in your plant and garden area. This will save you water costs.
