Increase Your Summer Fun At Home

Get the most out of your yard this summer

With summer on the horizon, now is the time to do your final preparation to maximize your home’s green space. Here are easy tips to ensure this summer is the best one yet at your home.

1. Take care of the pests:  The Okanagan has many pests that can infiltrate your yard and put a damper on your summer enjoyment. Here’s how to deal with a few:

A. Deer:  Deer are beautiful to see but a pest to gardeners and certain plants can help keep them away. Junipers, lilacs, elderberry-black lace and bearberry can act as deer repellant.

B. Mosquitoes:  These pesky insects have ruined many a nice evening in the yard. To reduce their population, eliminate any standing water in your yard. Also burning citronella candles is an effective non-toxic way to keep the bugs away.

C. Wasps/hornets:  Few things will chase your BBQ indoors like persistent wasps. Make sure you get to the root of the problem by finding any hidden nests in hollow spaces under decks, eaves or on your roof. Also using a faux-hive can trap them and act as a deterrent.

2. Consider xeriscaping:  Xeriscaping is a way to conserve water and lower yard maintenance. Choose

drought-resistant plants that are hardier, take less water and arranged properly can reduce your water usage by 50-75%. If a complete switch is too expensive, you can gradually move in that direction and save money in the long run.

3. Blend beauty and fun:  Make sure that your yard combines great landscaping with functionality. Look for the balance between attractive plants and areas and great settings for people to enjoy. This way you can love your yard every day and show it off to your friends and family as well.
