Tips To Keep Your Lawn Healthy

lawn careSummer could be among the toughest times of the year for landscapes and lawns especially when we reside in a place with a warm climate. Although summer is the perfect time for lawns to thrive, it is also a time for less well maintained turf to suffer several issues that could result in poor health and stress. With a few basic lawn care practices, you should be able to significantly improve your lawn while you enjoy the warm summer months.

Effective Lawn Watering

Water is among the most important aspects of lawn care during the summer. The right lawn care watering practices will help your lawn send water down to the roots and deeper into the soil, beyond the evaporation level of the top part of the soil, which consequently will make your turf more drought and heat tolerant.

You can also train your turf to develop a deep root system by just ever watering the lawn once it shows signs of leaf withering, and then providing the lawn with a water at that period. This is a simple way of growing a deep root system for all kinds of turf.

Fertilizing Lawns

A lawn that is healthy before summer comes is a much better solution to get a healthy summer lawn, compared to waiting until summer and then trying to create a healthy lawn. The same holds true for winter lawn care Myrtle Beach.

Fertilizing your turf must be performed before the onset of these two harsh seasons, winter and summer. So you have to be sure that you have fertilized your lawn using high quality fertilizers before the onset of Summer so that the lawn will remain in its peak condition once the heat comes.

Lawn Mowing

Moisture loss in soils is the main cause of most turf problems during the summer. You can greatly improve this problem by correctly watering your lawn so it promotes deep root growth. However, you can also help the soil further by lowering the amount of water that is lost through evaporation.

Although a strong and healthy lawn that is growing in full sunlight could be cut short, for many lawns which are much less than perfect, their best health benefit during the summer can come about by boosting the lawn mowing height. This significant increase in the leaf length of the lawn will then provide shade and insulation to the soil and protect them against moisture loss, which will result in less heat stress for the landscape.

Pest and Weed Control

There are lawn treatments that are designed to get rid of pests and weeds. Don’t treat pets and weeds using chemical pesticides during the hot days of summer rather than wait for milder days to carry out any such spraying or better yet, treat for weeds or pests before summer comes.
