Imagine a nice warm summer day. You're relaxing in your home, and preparing for a nice barbeque lunch on your lawn. You set the table, prep the grill, and open a cold beer while relaxing in you nice green lawn. Now open your eyes and look at your lawn. Is it the same as you imagined? Chances are, there is some work to do. Summer brings in the heat, which may mean overheating your grass. You can see some green turning into brown, or even some patches of dead grass. The good news in that you can still have that dream barbeque. Here are some tips to keep your lawn green during summer.
Do you have the right type of grass?
Even before planting your grass, do some research. What type of grass best fits the climate you live in? You may talk to the specialist in the shop, or consult with an experienced gardener. The key here is to have the best fit grass for the type of soil and weather you have in your home. Give the grass the best chance to grow nice and healthy by putting it in the right environment.
Careful with the water
Since it is a hot day, you may be tempted to water your grass too much. Always observe the right amount of watering. This includes any water they get from occasional rains or drizzles. Make sure you water the entire lawn evenly. A sprinkler system would work best for this. Lastly, it is also important to water at the right time of the day. Early morning or in the evenings would be best. Watering your lawn when the sun is at its peak will only evaporate the water you are sprinkling.
Use some product
Just like your hair, it takes a little more than water to keep it healthy and growing. You will need some product to keep it looking great. For your lawn, some fertilizer will do this. Again, just like water, the right amount is essential. Too much or too little will not work. The same goes on the timing of application. It is best to start this even before the summer heat starts.
Trim the right way
Trimming too much is bad for the grass too. Set your lawn mower at the highest setting. Give your grass some growth and length, this ensure they will have strong roots. Stronger roots means better survivability.
