This June, we invite you to take part in a month-long celebration of your lawn, gardens, and outdoor space. Several National Months, Weeks, and Days have been designated in June that perfectly celebrate all that we at Createscape Landscaping Service stand for in the landscaping industry. If you followed some of our tips from last month’s blog on lawn care, you might already be celebrating your lawn. Here are a few of these special national designations and how you can further celebrate your lawn and garden this June.
National Great Outdoors Month in June reminds us to explore our nation’s abundant wildlife refuges, parks, and natural beauty. The pandemic has made it a challenge to travel, and many parks have been closed for an extended time. Appropriately, this month also raises awareness of the accessibility of the great outdoors. Depending on where we live and current circumstances, reaching nature is sometimes more difficult. But you can start the summer fun and recognize the designation of this month just by spending time in the fresh air on your back patio and enjoying whatever nature you have around you. If you don’t already own a hardscaped area, Createscape designs stunning and functional patios for entertaining that will make you feel like you are on vacation year-round. We also design and install beautiful gardens so you can be surrounded by nature anytime you need them.
June is also National Rose Month because it has been considered an ideal month for roses. In 1986, President Ronald Reagan signed legislation to make the rose the national floral emblem of the United States. Roses come in more than 150 species across the Northern Hemisphere, so there is sure to be one that will grow best in your soil and climate. Plant a rose bush in your home garden and bring some beauty and fragrance to your outdoor space.
The designation of June as National Pollinators Month encourages the planting of pollinator gardens of native, non-invasive pollen and nectar-producing plants. When these gardens bloom, they attract bees, birds, bats, and other natural pollinators whose species are declining. Each of these pollinating creatures makes it possible for us to grow fruits and vegetables. These types of plants have the added benefit of root systems that prevent erosion in your garden. To make your garden pollinator-friendly, choose bright flowers, plant a seasonal variety, and attract birds with seeds, birdhouses, and a water source.
June also has a designated National Week and several National Days that focus on gardens and nature. Starting with National Gardening Week the first week of June, mark your calendar for June 6 to observe National Gardening Exercise Day. This day encourages us to reap the physical and emotional benefits of gardening. It is therapeutic, builds muscle, and burns calories by weeding, digging, spading, planting, pruning, mowing, raking, and walking.
On June 12, observe Red Rose Day with that new rose bush you just planted in your garden. Be sure to Weed Your Garden on June 13 and display your U.S. flag on your home or front lawn for Flag Day on June 14. Take some photos of your beautiful, blooming garden on June 15 when we celebrate Nature Photography Day. Finally, all this celebration culminates on June 20, when summer officially begins.
