Summer is here, so you know what that means. Spending time at the beach, having a grill out with drinks and great food and spending time with your friends and family. However, even though you are looking forward to your outdoor activities as well as staying inside your home when it gets too hot, you still have to invest time and effort into your summer lawn care regimen to keep your yard looking healthy and beautifully trimmed throughout the hot months of summer. Below you’ll find some of our Lawn Care Palm Bay FL tips that can help you as a homeowner make the most of your yard and have the time to enjoy your summer:
Make Sure Your Lawn Is Hydrated. It’s best for your lawn to receive about an inch of water every week. This can be done by manually watering your lawn with a garden hose and/or an irrigation system or through rainfall. Whenever you are watering your lawn, it’s always to best to hydrate as early as possible in the morning before the sun is able to dry up your lawn. However, make sure you don’t oversaturate your lawn with too much water.
Mow Your Lawn As Often As Possible. Whenever you are mowing your lawn, it’s best to set your lawnmower blades as high as possible. Short grasses are able to obtain more sunlight and use the sun’s energy to produce more nutrients. Regular mowing is always recommended in order to prevent cutting more than one-third of the grass blades at a time.
Use Grass Clippings To Your Advantage. Instead of bagging your grass clippings, you can redistribute them across your lawn. Doing this helps supply your yard’s soil with essential nutrients, as well as additional shade.
Resist The Urge To Fertilize. If your lawn is looking really dry because of the summer heat, please do your best not to fertilize. Applying extra fertilizer in the heat of the summer months can potentially burn your lawn. It’s best to prepare your lawn for summer by fertilizing in the spring, stopping at least 30 days before hot temperatures arrive.
Avoid Insect Infestations. Lawns that are not hydrated on a consistent basis are a welcome sight to insect infestations from pests such as fire ants, mosquitoes, fleas, chinch bugs and many more. Smaller infestations will often take care of themselves, but if serious problems persist, call your pest control company immediately.
