Keep Your Grass Green & Healthy: 5 Mid Summer Lawn Care Tips

Professional Lawn Care

Maintaining a lush, green lawn can become increasingly difficult as we reach the hottest temperatures of the year. Not only can the intense heat from the sun put stress on your lawn, but pests tend to come out in droves to wreak havoc on your lawn, landscaping, and garden. Following some strategic best practices for your lawn can ensure your grass looks its best. In this article, Brockman Tree & Lawn Care will provide five lawn care tips to keep your grass green and healthy in the height of summer.

1. Water at the Right Time

If you need to water your lawn, it’s best to do so early in the morning. When you water at the start of the day, the water can soak into the soil before the hot afternoon sun causes it to evaporate. Monitor your lawn’s moisture levels and be careful not to overwater.

2. Mow Your Grass Often

When you mow your grass regularly, you will encourage healthy growth. Be careful about how much you are cutting, though, as cutting it too short can stress your grass. Plus, slightly taller grass will shade the soil and reduce water evaporation. Use our mowing service to keep another set of eyes on your lawn.

3. Fertilize Your Lawn with Care

If you fertilize your grass in the middle of summer, do so with extra care. A slow-release fertilizer will provide a steady supply of nutrients to your grass without overwhelming it. Over-fertilizing can harm your lawn, and high-nitrogen fertilizers can burn your lawn in the heat.

4. Keep Weeds Under Control

It’s important to stay on top of weed control so they don’t compete with your grass for nutrients and water. You can pull your weeds or use Brockman Tree & Lawn Care’s safe lawn weed control services to eliminate your problem.

5. Address any Pest Issues

Summer can bring an invasion of lawn pests, such as grubs, that need to be addressed before they destroy your lawn. If you see any dead or dying grass patches, you may have an infestation. We offer lawn insect control services to help protect your lawn.
