A green and healthy lawn is the perfect accent for any home. During the summer months, achieving lush green grass is not as easy as it may seem. Many people forget that as the weather changes, so should the methods and techniques to care for lawn. Depending on the type of grass your property has, tailoring your care is the best way to achieve the lawn of your dreams.
As the temperature increases, the way you cut your lawn is extremely important. Follow these tips for mowing correctly during the hot summer months:
Length of Grass: Depending on the type of grass, your lawn will either grow faster in the warmer months or cooler months. Either way, raising the height of your mower and allowing a cut higher than 1/3 will encourage deeper roots and healthier growth in the summer. If the grass gets too long, mowing will become difficult and the lawn will look messy. Finding a healthy medium will ensure best results.
Time of Day: During the summer months, mowing your lawn at the right time of day makes a big difference. Timing has the ability to increase lawn quality, decrease weeds, prevent disease and create a beautiful appearance in your grass. While it may seem appealing to mow when the sun is low, morning dew and moisture can cause uneven cuts. Waiting for the sun to be out will result in your best cut grass.
Maintaining Lawn: As temperatures increase, it is important to mow your lawn frequently and on a regular basis. With a sharpened mower blade, your grass will cut cleanly and encourage healthy growth. The most important way to maintain a healthy lawn is to stay on top of mowing, watering and fertilizer. Tend to your lawn with care and your grass will stay a gorgeous green all season long.
