This summer has been a hot one and we are all looking forwards to cooler days. But right now, your trees and plants need help recovering from the summer. After consistent high temperatures, our landscapes need a little extra loving and care. But how can we help our yards recover? We have asked our nursery pros and have compiled their top three ways to help our landscapes recover from the summer.


  1. Moon Juice and Soil & Water Conditioner

Are your trees and plants looking a bit yellow and sad? Has the summer sun gotten the better of your yard? The best way to help recover from stressors like heat, and to help your trees and plants grow healthy, is to use fertilizers. Fertilizers are specifically made to help trees, palms, and other plants to regain their health. Healthy trees and plants are better at handling the changing weather, more so than those weakened by heat stress. Moon Valley Nursery’s Soil & Water Conditioner is the perfect primer for fertilizers. Our Soil & Water Conditioner helps soil provide more water to your trees and plants. It is a great for making sure your trees and plants get as many nutrients as possible. Our Super Charged Moon Juice is specially formulated with Furst liquid technology and includes a blend of organic enzymes and amino acids that help stimulate the growth of trees and plants. Moon Juice also supports new root hair growth which helps plants increase their moisture intake. Create a thriving, healthy landscape – fertilize your trees, palms, and plants.

  1. Watering

We can’t forget about watering, which seems like a simple thing. Watering is key in keeping your trees and plants healthy. You want to make sure you are watering the correctly – watering deep and thoroughly saturating the entire root system and allowing it to dry between waterings. You want to make sure you are not over-watering as we transition from summer to fall. Soon, we will have shorter days and cooler nights; and many people do not change the amount they water. We will need to switch our water systems from summer to fall settings as it starts to cool down. How much you should water and how often depends on the size and age of the tree, palm, or plant.

While it is still hot, the best times for watering are early mornings or late evenings.

  1. Tree Care

Summer can be a tough time for our trees, palms, and plants. And not all landscape materials will survive the stressors of our SoCal summer. And no one wants a yard filled with dead or dying materials. So, take the time to clean up those damaged trees and make way for new growth. By doing so, your landscape will start to look clean and more vibrant. But don’t prune newly planted trees or palms until cooler weather hits. Mulching around trees will help with the remaining heat and keep your trees from drying out. Taking care of your trees and plants will assist in new growth which means a greener landscape.


Even though summer hasn’t officially moved on yet, it is still a great time to get ready for fall. Our knowledgeable nursery pros are ready to answer any questions and can help you select the right way to fix up your yard. Fall is a beautiful season that bring some new colors to your landscape.
