Summer Lawncare Tips
As many already know, Texas is known for its extreme heat during the summer months. The summer sun beats down and the grass just can’t get enough water. Of course, this type of weather can make it difficult for lawns to thrive and flourish, leaving many front yards and backyards looking brown and patchy.
Here are some suggestions:
- Water lawns at least once a week
- Water deeply, but infrequently to keep the roots drought-tolerant
- Do not over fertilize—this can damage lawns in the summer and encourage tender growth
- Take special care of high-traffic spots
- Use herbicides on weeds or pull them by hand
- Seed areas that do not appear to be growing well
These suggestions are meant to ensure that you understand what is best for your lawn in the summer. When these are not enough, however, and you find an underlying problem lurking beneath, that is when it is best to call a team of professionals to handle the job in the most efficient way.
