As the summer heat ramps up, your lawn requires a slightly different care routine to stay lush and green. Understanding the essentials of summer lawn maintenance is critical to a healthy lawn that can withstand the season’s challenges. Let’s dive into some essential summer lawn tips to keep your grass in top condition.

Regular, Proper Watering

One of the most crucial aspects of lawn care during summer is watering. Lawns typically need at least one inch of water per week or more if the heat is severe. Water early in the morning to reduce evaporation and ensure deeper soil penetration. This timing also helps prevent lawn diseases that can arise from evening watering.

Mowing Strategies

During summer, adjust your mowing height. Keeping grass a bit taller provides shade to the soil, reducing water evaporation and protecting roots from the harsh sun. Sharp mower blades are essential; dull blades can damage grass, making it more susceptible to disease and pests.

Fertilizing Carefully

If your lawn needs fertilizer, Farison Lawn Care will strategically apply it for you. Contact us today for our expert application services to ensure the correct fertilizer approach for your grass.

Controlling Weeds

Weeds can be more aggressive in the summer, so an effective weed control strategy is essential. Hand-pulling, mulching, and using herbicides can all play a role. Remember to target weeds early before they can seed and spread.

Dealing with Pests

Summer can bring an increase in lawn pests. Regular inspections can help catch any infestations early. If pests are a problem, consider environmentally friendly pest control solutions to keep your lawn healthy without harming beneficial insects or the local ecosystem.

Aeration and Overseeding

If your lawn looks thin, summer might be the time for aeration and overseeding. This can improve oxygen, water, and nutrient flow to the roots, helping to create a thicker, more resilient lawn.

Keeping Your Lawn Green in Summer

Consistent, appropriate care is the key to keeping your lawn green in summer. Adjust your routine to address the specific needs of your lawn in the warmer months, and you’ll be rewarded with a vibrant, green space.
