How to Care for Your Roses in Summer: Precision Scapes’ Pro Recommendations

Summer is the time of the roses – these lush, fragrant and gorgeous flowers have the time of their life these months, charming you with their bright bold colors, their hypnotizing scents and their surreal beauty. But the scorching summer months in your area may also negatively impact your roses, together with pests and specific diseases, all leading to incommensurable damages. Today, our lawn care experts, together with their landscaping colleagues came up with a short guideline of summer roses’ care for you to take into consideration. Preserve your roses, keep them healthy and safe and enjoy a fragrant, colored and dreamy summer on your property!

1. Give Your Roses Plenty of Water

You should hydrate your lawn, garden and overall landscape thoroughly during the summer months, following, of course, the water regulations in your area if there are any. However, roses need special care when it comes to irrigation. You should give them at least 2.5 gallons of water weekly, very early in the morning. Horticulture specialists and rose experts say that the best way to keep your roses healthy and thriving is to install a slow release drip irrigation system, as it hydrates the roses thoroughly, without wasting too much water.

2. Keep Your Roses Free From Pests

There are plenty of pests lurking around your property and you should keep an eye on them and repel them efficiently. Aphids are usually the biggest enemies of roses during summer. These tiny pests feed on your plants and they have a sweet tooth for roses. You will find these worm-like pests under the roses’ leaves and you can trace them by the black sticky substance they leave behind. This sooty fungus causes many problems for the plants, as it blocks sunlight. If you have an aphids’ case on your hands, you should ask your lawn care specialists for their help with aphids. There are plenty of organic and chemical solutions to keep these destructive pests away from your roses and you should be prepared to employ them.

3. Feed Your Roses with the Right Nutrients

Needless to say, your roses should have been planted in a sunny area, away from mosquitoes, snails or other shadow-loving bugs and pests, and benefit from a proper soil pH and balanced nutrients. However, feeding your roses during summer is mandatory, as heat and other environmental conditions may lead to disease development and poor nutrition side effects. While proper watering is the best solution to have your roses nourished in a healthy manner, you can also use organic fertilizers to keep them thriving. We have talked about the benefits of Epsom Salt before as a natural fertilizer for roses and vegetables, but you can ask your local lawn care specialists for more advice on the matter.

Having roses thriving on your property is a dream come true, but these majestic gorgeous flowers also need the proper care. Ask your local lawn care specialists for advice and let them help you with the best protection and maintenance activities for your roses all summer long.

"I met William Russ, Owner of this company, at the local YMCA. ... Despite having multiple jobs in the works, he sent over a member of his crew several hours a day over the past week to help get everything done on my list. If something wasn't done as l expected, he had it redone to my satisfaction. When any of my garden tools were used, they were picked up & put back in one spot after use. I can't say enough about how thorough & helpful his crew members have been. I'd recommend them to anyone wanting quality yard/garden services."

"Our house looked so drab out here in the country. ... So we had Precision completely redo all the landscaping at my home based on a recommendation of a family member. They removed all the old beds and plantings. Designed all new beds that really complimented our property perfectly. Before we got started they came out and took measurements and gave me a drawing (to scale) of all the new beds and planting’s along with their estimate. They showed up when they said they would and finished when they said they would. The only surprise was that it looks so much better than I even imagined it would. It looks so good, my wife and I keep coming up with more things for them to do because it just makes our property look so good!"
