July landscape update from DLC

July 2017 | Related Categories: Resident News & Events

After months of dry heat, the famous Arizona monsoon season is almost upon us!

DLC crews are preparing your landscape for the summer storms. Protecting your trees from wind damage becomes a focus, and crews are pruning trees along your streetscapes. This helps wind flow through the canopies more easily, helping trees stay grounded. Our onsite crew is also pruning any low-hanging branches.

We continue with cycle work, trimming back encroaching plant material from your sidewalks and bike lanes. Midsummer also means cleanup from the last of the spring blooming season and we are removing fallen bean pods and suckers from the ground as needed.

We are fertilizing your turf to strengthen it as the Bermuda completes its transition from dormancy and running regular assessments of your irrigation system to check that it’s functioning as designed.

We are keeping an eye on your culverts, checking that they are operating as designed to prepare for the heavy rains.

Throughout the monsoon preparation, we continue our focus on protecting your landscape in the summer heat and humidity, lengthening irrigation run times as needed, and treating any weed growth. Read on for tips on caring for your own yard in the July weather.

Monsoon season is here

The later part of the summer brings monsoon rains, and it couldn’t come soon enough. While the monsoon season will bring the much-needed rain to our desert environment, the storms also pose the biggest weather-related risk for our trees. DLC crews thin the community’s trees throughout the year in order to maintain the health of the tree and to prepare for monsoon season.

The summer months are a great time to assess the condition of your trees, remove overly thick foliage, correct damage from previous storms and remove dead or structurally unsound branches to minimize the chance the tree will be damaged or cause damage during a storm. Get more tips on how to prepare your own yard for monsoon season by visiting the DLC Learning Center.

Storm response

When monsoon storms arrive, the emphasis for DLC Resources shifts to clean-up and repair. Typically, the summer storms occur late in the day, after crews have left the property for the day. For emergency storm response needs, such as damaged trees in the common areas blocking streets or sidewalks, please call your community management team at 866-553-8290. Full scale non-emergency storm cleanup generally begins the following morning. Normal maintenance activities may need to be suspended or reduced in scope while the crew clean up debris and perform repairs.

Watering with summer rain

If you haven’t already adjusted your watering schedule, now is the time to do it. Even though temperatures are always skyrocketing this time of year, the increased humidity and monsoon rains typically provide needed supplemental water. Check out our helpful watering guide on the DLC Learning Center.
