Protecting Your Landscape This Summer

Lawn Care Aeration | SouthernGreenUSA.comThe summer is here and it’s hot out. Here are a few tips to help you improve your landscape while the sun is shining:

Let Your Grass Grow – Did you know that allowing your grass to grow a bit longer during summer months will help roots grow? When you have a landscape with strong, deep roots, you will force weeds to compete with grass for water, thus making it harder for them to grow within the landscape.

Mulch When You Mow – When you mow your grass with the mulching setting, you are helping your grass improve during the summer months. Mulching helps keep your grass cool all summer long, helps hydrate your lawn, and allows precious nutrients in the chopped blades to return to the grass that is in the ground.

Water in the Early Mornings – If we have said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times – you should always water your grass early in the morning. Doing this allows your lawn to get more water before it evaporates and gives it more time to fully dry before the night. If you irrigate when it’s too hot out, you’ll run the risk of boiling your landscape to death.
