The heat of the summer can be difficult to endure, and your lawn may be struggling too. Here’s some advice from the pros about how to care for your lawn during the hottest months of the year.
With summer months well under way, keeping your lawn hydrated is a primary concern. It’s no secret that watering your lawn is essential to healthy growth, but how and when you water your grass can make a big difference in how well your lawn fares this year.
Many areas across the country see heavy rains, especially in May and October, the wettest months of the year. Rain is important to irrigate plants, but too much can obviously cause serious problems. In addition to washing away any recent seeding, pesticides and herbicides can be transferred to unintended areas and into the water system. Landscaping can also see negative effects as water chips away at soil and can end up standing over plants if adequate drainage isn’t established. With some precautions and responses, however, you can minimize the damage inflicted on your yard by the heavy rains of Spring.
With winter on the way out and warm days ahead, it’s time to get your lawn ready for the months ahead. Spending some preparation time on your soil, grass, and other vegetation now can save you time later and ensure a more healthy lawn for the time you and your family will be spending outdoors this year.
