Easy Ways to Maintain Your Lawn.

As you well know, hot, dry days are just an inescapable part of summer. Many lawns seem to bake in the heat.

But, look around and you’ll see one or two in the neighborhood that look as green as can be. You can help your lawn look just as great in the heat if you do 4 things:

1. Feed Regularly

Within 6-8 weeks of feeding, microbes in the soil have processed most of the nutrients for your lawn to absorb. You need to replenish these nutrients with another feeding. A well-fed lawn grows in thick, crowding out weeds and cooling the soil, which helps it handle the heat.

2. Mow High

If you cut your grass short, you’re short-changing your lawn. Longer grass allows the growth of longer roots, which can reach down for moisture even on hot, dry days. Just set your mower on one of the highest settings. You’ll be surprised what a difference this simple step can make

3. Watering

If your grass has been cut short all season, you’re going to have to water more frequently. But even longer grass needs moisture. So if you choose to water during a dry spell, be sure to water deeply and infrequently. Frequent, shallow watering encourages grass to grow short roots, causing the grass to stress out during droughts. An inch of water a week serves as a good rule of thumb for keeping your lawn green during the hot summer.

Just be sure to water as early as possible in the morning, between 6AM and 10AM, to help reduce wasteful evaporation

4. Reseeding and Renovation

The best time to reseed lawns are in the fall or early spring when conditions are optimal for grass growth. Adding clover to your existing lawn is a great way to create a green, low maintenance lawn that doesn’t need a lot of water. It’s deep roots help your lawn stay greener, longer during short-term drought, and when you return the clover clippings to the lawn after mowing, it self-fertilizes – meaning less work for you! 

Today’s Lawn Foods Are Different

Scotts® granular Lawn Foods are slow-release products, meaning the nutrients are released slowly to the lawn. Microbes in the soil are able to break down the nitrogen in the particles over time, thereby releasing nutrients slowly and steadily over a6-8 week period, which means no lawn burn.
