July, typically the hottest month of the year, is right around the corner. In New Jersey, July is known for its high temps and crowded beaches. Many flowers, especially those that strive on high heat, flourish in July, as do insects. Grass, on the other hand, may struggle to maintain its greenness during July, so be sure to provide adequate water coverage one – two times a day.
