3 Ways to Keep Your Grass Green in the Summer

Just like humans, grass can show physical signs of stress. Extreme heat and other factors can cause those pesky brown spots to sporadically pop up throughout your yard. Use these tips to help your lawn maintain that luscious green glow all summer long:

1. Water in the morning

Water your lawn early in the morning when the weather is cooler so that it has more time to soak into the ground. Watering during the day will cause the water to evaporate quickly, and your grass will miss out on much-needed nutrients. Additionally, water for longer periods of time less often for deeper roots and overall less lawn maintenance.

2. Seed the lawn

If you’re building a lawn from scratch or simply trying to maintain the health of your current lawn, seeding is an important step. Early spring is a good time to get this process started. However, it’s important to keep in mind that if it’s a cool start to bring, cold soil will slow down growth.
3. Keep your mower blades sharp

Mowing with a dull blade can create a shabby cut that browns quickly. Avoid this with a sharp mower that creates clean cuts, which will prevent lawn disease. Sharpening your mower should be done every 1-2 months.

As they say, the grass is always greener on the other side. Be the other side by following these important tips!
