June is the truest spring month in North Jersey. While the frequent rains and cooler temperatures of April often linger into May, June is perfect spring — comfortable temperatures, clear skies, and lengthening days. Long, soaking rains make way for quick, bursting showers as late spring turns to summer. The sun moves towards its seasonal position high in the bright-blue sky. It’s finally time to really be outside. June is also a perfect time to plan for your outdoor space.
Spending more time outside means cooking outside. So much of our lives revolves around feeding our people – be it family, friends, or neighbors. When the gathering moves outside, the cook moves outside, too. Outdoor barbecues and full outdoor kitchens make this possible.
Portable barbecues are the most affordable option, while built-in structures allow your outdoor cook space to become a true outdoor kitchen. Permanent structures connect to your home’s gas supply, which means you’ll never run out of fuel for the grill again. If this sounds like a great idea to you, our experts can help you come up with the perfect plan for your unique space.
Being outside is an essential part of summer, but unfortunately, we aren’t out there alone. Outdoor pests are more than just a nuisance; they compromise the health of our lawns, plantings, and people. Imagine being outside in the evening without having to load on the bug spray or constantly swat at those pesky mosquitos, ticks & gnats. In the morning, you can look out over your beautiful, lush lawn while enjoying your first cup of coffee. To help you create and maintain this peaceful outdoor oasis, Horizon provides complete exterior pest control services.
In addition to protecting your lawn against pests, Horizon can also help you make sure your lawn is well-watered. We provide sprinkler system services at the beginning and end of the season, as well as maintenance all season long. To conserve water and help you save money, Horizon also installs rain sensors that turn your sprinklers off when Mother Nature takes care of the watering. When the sensor dries out, the sprinklers are turned back on to maintain even watering for even growth.
As we prepare for the lazy days of summer, June is a great time to reevaluate how we can maximize our outdoor spaces. The outdoors is often Dad’s domain. Why not celebrate everything Dad does by scheduling a consultation with Horizon Landscape to make your great outdoors everything Dad loves?
As Father’s Day approaches, we honor our fathers and all the men who stood as fathers to help us along the way. Sometimes, father-child relationships can be difficult, complicated, or even broken. While even the best fathers sometimes fail their children, there is a God in Heaven who calls Himself our Heavenly Father, and calls us His sons and daughters. We are adopted into this parent-child relationship with the Father when we trust His Son, Jesus Christ, our elder brother, as Savior. This Father’s Day, may you find the peace, comfort, and security that comes from knowing you are safe in your Father’s arms.
“A Father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, He leads out the prisoners with singing;”
