Tips For A Healthy Lawn This Summer

lawn careSummer is among the toughest times for lawns especially those that are in warmer climates. Although most lawns thrive during summer, there are those, which have been neglected, that suffer several problems that could lead to poor health and stress. There are a few simple lawn care practices that can help improve your lawn and help it survive and thrive throughout the summer season.

Law Care Tip 1: Watering Properly

Watering is the most important part of turf health during summer. Proper watering practices will allow a lawn to send down water to deeper roots of the soil profile, deeper than the evaporation level of the top part of the soil, which as a result is going to make your lawn more tolerant to heat and drought.

You can train your turf slowly to create a deeper root system by just watering the lawn once it is showing signs that the leaf is wilting and then providing the lawn a deep drink of water at that period. This is simple method for you to grow a deep root system for all turf.

Lawn Care Tip 2: Fertilize Lawns In The Spring

A lawn that is healthy before summer begins is a better solution to getting a healthy lawn for summer than having to wait for summer to come and try to make healthy lawn. This also applies to winter lawn care. Fertilizing the lawn must be conducted to the onset of the two toughest seasons, winter and summer. So be sure to fertilize your lawn to make sure that it remains in top condition once the heat arrives.

Lawn Care Tip 3: Correct Summer Lawn Mowing

When it comes to Myrtle Beach lawn care, most of the lawn problems experienced during summer is brought on by loss of moisture in soil. You can improve this situation by watering correctly so that deep root growth is promoted. However, we could also help the soil by lessening the amount of water that is lost through evaporation during summer. Although a strong healthy lawn that is growing in full sunlight could be cut short, for the majority of lawns that are less than perfect, their best health benefit in summer could come about by boosting the lawn mowing height. The increase in the lawn leaf’s length then insulates and shades the soil against more moisture loss, which leads to less heat stress for your lawn. The same concept of insulating the soil to protect it against moisture could be added by mulch mowing the lawn. The lawn cuttings could also be recycled back to the lawn instead of being collected and then thrown away. Recycling lawn clippings does not just insulate the lawn soil against losing moisture but they are also a good source of nutrients to feed to the lawn back rather than depending on the expense and hassle of using different lawn fertilizers.

Lawn Care Tip 4: Weed and Pest Control

There are pest and weed control treatments that are harsh on the lawn especially those that are not applied by lawn care professionals. Treating weeds and pests during the hottest days of summer is not recommended. You should wait around for milder days before you do any kind of spraying. Better yet, treat weeds or pests during spring.
