It’s no secret that this summer is a scorcher. But a little heat shouldn’t prevent you from enjoying your landscaping in the warmer weather.

If the temperature is too high at the peak of the day, it’s always a good idea to enjoy the pleasure of your lawn in the evenings. Here’s a look at some activities you can do to make the most of your lawn during a hotter-than-average summer.

Mowing and Watering

One thing you can do that lets you enjoy and maintain your lawn is some general evening lawn mowing and watering. During the summer, your grass blades need to be a specific height to shade your lawn from the intense heat while still letting in the right amount of nutrients.

Mowing and watering in the evening let you accomplish a great maintenance task in comfort while ensuring that your lawn soaks up the water it needs overnight.

Schedule Dinner Outside

An evening summer barbecue is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors at home. Feel the grass beneath your feet as you grill your favorite meats and vegetables for your family.

Eating outside in the evening provides some flair to a summer meal and just enough exterior warmth to enjoy the season in comfort.

Accomplish Some DIY Upgrades

Most people that love their backyard have DIY dreams that rarely come to fruition. Although it may be too hot to work on DIY upgrades during the day, the evenings are a beautiful and more comfortable time to get DIY plans done.

Enjoy your twilight hours this summer and get some of these DIY tasks done in your yard:

  • Build a raised garden bed
  • Create a beautiful stone path throughout your yard
  • Install a new umbrella on your porch
  • String some decorative lights around your porch for some evening character

Camping Out in the Backyard

If you have younger kids who aren’t ready for a full-blown camping trip during the summer, use your well-maintained lawn as the perfect campsite for the night.

Setting up a tent outside, enjoying camping foods, and letting your kids get a taste of the great outdoors from the comfort of your own home is one of the best uses of your backyard you’ll find this summer.

Start a New Garden

Finally, summer evenings are a great time to start planting a summer vegetable garden for future enjoyment. Some of the vegetables and herbs you can plant to thrive during the heat are:

  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Radishes
  • Peppers
  • Squash
  • Beans
