Essential Lawn Care Tips for Summer

Many of the clients of Complete Lawncare & Tree Service ask us how they can help their garden survive the scorching heat in the summer. So we decided to write this brief but informative blog on a few essential lawn care tips.

Lawn Care

Water every morning and do not overdo it

Your lawn will need water in order to survive in any temperate. This is especially true in the hot summer months. When watering on warm days, you should always water early in the morning; this will give your grass time to soak up the water before the sun peeks out and evaporates it.

Watering deeply and infrequently is beneficial for longer grass, as it will help to promote root growth. When you water deeply, it reaches the entire root zone, which in turn leads to more effective absorption. There is no need to water your grass daily, as overwatering can actually cause more harm than good.

Mow High

Keeping your grass slightly longer in the hot season will help, as it allows the roots to extend deeper. When your lawn has deep roots, weeds are unable to grow as easily. Longer grass will also allow for better water absorption and allow the grass to go even deeper to get water on hot days. Longer grass will also provide shade to the blades below. While the recommended length varies, a good rule of thumb is from 3-4 inches. To maintain your lawn at this height, make sure you set your mower high, and never remove more than ⅓ of the grass height at one time.

And Don’t Mow During Drought

If you want to keep your grass healthy, never mow during a drought. This is because the grass is stressed, which means the blades are less likely to recover and are too damaged from mowing.
