Care For Your Lawn This Summer
Everyone wants the best lawn on the street, and we are here to help you accomplish that reputation. Care for your lawn all summer long with these tips!
The Right Height
Don’t cut the grass when it’s too short or too tall. If it’s too short, you could damage it. The taller the grass, the deeper the roots, the fewer weeds, and much less water will be evaporated. You should not be removing more than a third in length of your grass when you cut it. You should also factor in the kind of grass you have when you’re deciding when it is best to cut it.
Water at the Right Time
You don’t want to drown your grass in water. If you have several rainy days, there’s no need to run the irrigation system. Make a watering plan that works for both you and your lawn. It should not be super frequent, as this will lead to a soppy, muddy yard that cannot recover.
Clean Up After Your Pups
Did you know that over time, your dog’s urine can damage and dry out your grass? Instead of letting them use the bathroom in the grass, create a designated area for them to do so. A pebbled or mulched area is best. Any waste should be picked up often. If you want to treat areas that have already been hurt by your pet, flush that area of the lawn with water.
Don’t Sweat the Clippings
You don’t have to spend a bunch of money on fertilizer or put a lot of time into cleaning up lawn clippings. Just let the grass clippings stay and let them do their thing. Not only will this be a natural fertilizer for your grass, but it let you skip out on clean-up time.

Take Care of the Weeds
It’s time to take care of those unwanted weeds! Use a weed controller like 3-in-1 Weed and Feed, 5-in-1 Weed and Feed, or have a lawn service come to take care of it. It’s pretty simple to treat, as all you have to do is follow the treatment instructions.
