5 Essentials for a Summer-Ready Yard

Summer’s here – the season for barbecues, fresh tomatoes, catching fireflies and enjoying the outdoors with friends and family! Is your backyard ready? Heinen Landscape and Irrigation can help prepare your own slice of the great outdoors for the best summer yet. We’ve carefully selected the top 5 elements of a summer-ready backyard:

  1. Patio

A patio is the perfect place for a solitary morning with a book, a festive evening with neighbors – and every occasion in between. To begin your patio all that’s needed is a weather resistant hard surface – from brick or flagstone to concrete or even a mix of materials. The next thing you’ll need if you plan to spend any time outside is a place to sit! From built in stone benches to a shady pergola over your own store purchased seating – Heinen specializes in uniting beauty and function, and we work closely with our customers to create the ideal patio for their particular lifestyle.

  1. Lawn

Your lawn is likely the biggest component of your outdoor space. From sprinklers and drainage to mowing and weed control, Heinen can ensure your grass is at its greenest! Whether you’re rolling out the croquet set or just enjoy the look of a well-kept green expanse, Heinen’s turf experts take lawn-care seriously, taking your yard size, slope, plant materials, soil type, microclimates, weather patterns, water quality, and much more into consideration when maintaining your lawn.

  1. Garden

Planting a garden is one of the most popular ways to add some color to your backyard scene. Heinen can assist you with the design, planting, mulching, edging materials and all you need to get your garden up and started. Curious about growing a particular type of plant in your garden? Try Heinen’s Online Plant Catalog to identify plants best suited for your backyard environment. Our specialists can also provide ongoing maintenance help through insect and pest control, fertilization, and – of course – sprinkler and irrigation services.

  1. Trees

Natural fences, providers of shade, and landscape design elements, trees enhance many aspects of most yards. But they don’t come without their challenges, and that’s why Heinen Landscape and Irrigation is at your service. Our arbor specialists provide pruning, insecticide and fungicide services, and also assistance with any root issues to help you enjoy all that your trees have to offer.

  1. Lighting

Lighting design can elevate your outdoor space with the flip of a switch. Heinen’s lighting design experts can use light to expand your outdoor living area, allowing you to take advantage of those late summer nights. The right lighting can also promote safety and security – not to mention increase your property value and curbside appeal!
