6 Tips for Summer Lawn Care

Don’t you hate it when the grass is greener at your next door neighbor’s place? Follow these tips to manifest the lawn of your life.

Don’t you hate it when the grass is greener at your next door neighbor’s place? This summer you could have the lawn that turns everyone’s eyes green with envy and admiration, but you’ve got to get on it right now! Follow these tips to manifest the lawn of your life.

BEFORE SUMMER

1. Inspect

Inspect your lawn and note any spots that need special attention. If you notice brown patches, you need to act quickly to identify the disease so you can treat it. If the entire lawn is somewhat flattened from winter weather, call in an aeration service. Those little holes in the lawn will last just long enough to loosen up the soil and allow better water and nutrient absorption.

2. Rake

Rake any dead spots and reseed using a variety of grass seed to match the rest of your lawn. For larger areas that may have been damaged by snow plows, for example, you can remove entire sections and replace with sod. If you notice areas where there has been a lot of soil erosion, mulch beds are a good way to shore up future runoffs.

3. Fertilize

Apply a slow-release fertilizer to feed the grass over weeks. Pick a day that’s not windy and check to make sure there’s no rain in the immediate forecast to keep the fertilizer where you want it. Dispose of any leftover fertilizer appropriately, as you would household chemicals like paint.

DURING SUMMER

4. Water

Make sure to water deeply, not daily. Deep watering will encourage a healthy root system. Whether you drag the hose out in the morning or have an automatic sprinkler system, set a watering schedule. Your lawn needs an inch to an inch and a half of water a week.

5. Lawnmower Maintenace

Keep mower blades sharp and balanced for clean cuts, and change the pattern every time you mow so grass blades will stand up straight. Remember to let your grass clippings fall where they may, and remain there. “Grasscycling” returns nutrients to the soil, allowing them to fertilize the lawn.

Proper lawn care prevents the most common lawn problems from getting out of control. Keeping the grass at the right length will help keep it healthy and keep weeds at bay.

AFTER SUMMER

6. Rake & Weed

When autumn arrives, and the leaves begin to fall, don’t wait for large amounts to pile up. Remove leaves often, so they don’t get a chance to become wet and sticky. Blankets of wet leaves can create a fungal problem that will plague your lawn long after the last snow falls.

Set yourself up for another lovely lawn the following spring and summer by doing some weed control now, and an application of fertilizer for nutrients to feed your grass throughout the cold season.

Keep in mind, if you plan to sell your home, having a nice lawn is crucial. But the homes that show the best have more than just end-to-end grass. According to a recent survey in Turf Magazine, the landscapes that have the best value are those with “a sophisticated design with large deciduous, evergreen and annual color plants and colored hardscape.” The right shade trees will also protect your lawn and keep your house cooler this summer.

Notice summer lawn care doesn’t just cover June through September. By preparing your lawn well in advance of the summer heat, you’ll have a yard that will withstand the stress of summer and thrive through the fall.

I agree

I definitely agree. Summer Lawn care is so important, and people tend to neglect it because summer time doesn't feel like the time for doing work. But believe me, putting in a little bit of effort to tend to your lawn during the summer will pay off in dividends. https://www.blitzmarketing.org

I can relate

This is a topic that I can wholly relate with. I'm mostly away on business for the better part of the year, and don't really have enough time for lawn care. Neglect during the summer time really ensures a ghastly looking lawn every time I come home. Maybe I need to hire someone in-house from my business to take care of my own lawn. https://www.allseasonsfireplacespoolsandspas.com

Summer Lawn Care is important

Yep, Summer Lawn care is very important if one wants to have a pleasant-looking lawn throughout the year. Summer is where the yardkeeping really pays off. http://keedysfountaingrill.com/

hindsight is 20/20

I really plan on taking better care of my lawn this summer. I've had one of my properties in the past get knocked down a bit in price because the lawn was ugly. And the sad part is that I spent quite a bit getting it all dolled up at first, but didn't follow through so it ended up getting shorn down. https://www.desertsunconcrete.com

still timely in winter.

We're still far away from summer, but that does not mean summer lawn care should be ignored. We have to prepare while early. Besides, a lot of the tips about lawn care in the summer have their equivalent in winter. Maybe we need a winter lawn care article as well? www.deserttreeservice.com
