Fall Lawn Care Tips for Myrtle Beach

  • Fall lawn care depends on whether you have a warm season or a cool season grass. More than likely in the Myrtle Beach area you will find a warm season grass such as bermuda or saint augustine.
  • Those lawns with warm season grass who want to have a green grass in the colder months needs to apply a winter annual rye. This grass will grow and be green during the cold months and then die off in the warmer months allowing the normal warm season grass to grow
  • Fall is the time to start lowering the level of mowing slightly, this helps build the roots ensuring that the grass will survive the winter months and grow back strong the next season.
  • Fall is also time to aerate your lawn to loosen up the soil that has been compacted over the summer months.
  • Grubs lay their eggs during July and August, so the fall is the time when grub control is important.
  • Fall is also the time of year to pick up the falling leaves. A pile of leaves on a lawn will kill the grass and cause a bare spot.

Summertime Lawn Care Tips for Myrtle Beach

  • Your lawn should be watered at a rate of 1 in. Per week. Morning time is the best time to water your grass as watering at night invites fungus to grow.
  • You should mow your grass on the high setting of your mower. This will allow the taller grass to retain any moisture from watering or rain throughout the hot summer days. When cutting, you should not cut off more than 1/3rd of the height of the grass.
  • Summer time is also the time to watch for bugs in your yard. Applying the proper pesticides will help prevent any bugs from eating your lawn.

Conner’s Lawn Care Service can help you beat the heat by maintaining your yard properly during the hot summer months. We will mow, weed eat, trim and clean up your yard while also keeping an eye out for any problems to help prevent issues before they become serious problems.

Spring Lawn Care Tips for Myrtle Beach

  • When spring arrives its time to rake your lawn to help loosen up the soil and remove any dead material.
  • Spring time is also a good time to level out your yard, removing the high spots and filling in the low spots. A good draining yard is best for making sure that water doesn’t drain too fast from an area or sit on one spot too long causing dead grass.
  • Densely compacted soil does not allow the roots of grass to grow, making it harder for grass to grow and allowing weeds to take over
  • Once the problem spots of your yard have been fixed, it is time to seed the bare spots and any area of your lawn that may have lost some growth during the cold months.
  • Fertilizers and pesticides need to be applied after you have seeded your lawn. Fertilizers help your lawn by giving it nutrients and herbicides help with any bug problem that may eat your lawn allowing weeds to grow
  • The best height for grass to maintain its health is to be cut on the high setting of your mower. This may cause your lawn to need to be mowed more often, but taller grass have better roots and can fend off weeds better. It is also healthiest if no more than 1/3 of the blade of the grass is cut off at any one time.
