Nurturing Lawns in the Summer Heat: The Grounds Guys® Offers Tips on Caring for Lawns This Summer
Date:7/28/2014

Waco, TX (PRWEB) July 28, 2014

A lush green lawn offers the perfect setting for backyard barbecues and family playtime during the summer. However, the summer heat, lack of rain, foot traffic, and insects can often cause a lawn to become brown, weak and unhealthy. The Grounds Guys recommends these suggestions for nurturing your summer lawn:

Let It Grow
Mow a lawn once a week and set the height on the lawn mower about one inch higher than normal. This protects the grass roots from heat and allows roots to retain water and grow more easily. Avoid mowing a lawn extra short before going on vacation because this can cause weed and moss growth. Always mow with sharpened blades since dull blades leave ragged cuts that could lead to fungal spores and lawn disease.

Feed and Hydrate Well
To give a lawn an extra boost of protection, The Grounds Guys says it’s important to supply adequate nutrients for the lawn’s growth. Feed a lawn with a fertilizer that is good for the specific type of grass in the lawn. Water a lawn in the morning so grass blades have time during the day to dry out. This helps prevent fungal disease, too.

Give It Some Air
Aerating a lawn allows the soil to absorb water more easily and allows the roots to “breathe.” Aeration is a process in which holes are punched into the turf through use of an aerator. The Grounds Guys aeration team says these holes allow moisture and air to circulate, encouraging new growth and rejuvenating existing growth.

Fend Off Insects
Have a lawn inspected for insects if brown, patchy spots appear on the lawn. These patches could signal an insect problem. Insects such as grubs, mole crickets and various caterpillars can cause damage and ruin plans to have a healthy, green summer lawn.

From mowing and trimming to edging and cleanup of lawns this summer, The Grounds Guys are ready to exceed expectations with professional mowing and lawn care and offer advice to homeowners and businesses on summer lawn care.
