Summer Turf and Lawn Care Pest Control
With Summer having finally arrived, it is now time to get back outdoors and make sure that your yard and turf are well taken care of. Unfortunately, your lawn has a lot to deal with from mother nature all throughout the Summer months. There tends to be very unpredictable rain patterns and much less rain all around, as well as rising temperatures and a new population of bugs, fungus and other pests. Luckily for all of us, there are some basic lawn care steps that we can take to fight back and keep our yards and lawns safe, lush and green.
One of the first steps anyone can take to protect their turf is making sure that you are watering at the right times and using the right amounts. You don’t want to flood your yard or water it when the sun is high and hot. Both of these things can cause lots of damage, and cost you more money. In this economy, any unnecessary costs should be avoided. The best time to water your turf, for proper lawn care, is either early in the morning, long before the sun rises, so that the water has time to soak in, or just around sunset, when the day has cooled off and your lawn has worked up a good thirst. While you are running your sprinklers, each spot of your turf probably requires 15 to 20 minutes of watering, or 1 to 1 and a half inches of water. Any more than that and you are likely to be wasting. This should be done at least two, but no more than three, times a week.
Do not keep your lawn too long or too short. In lawn care, it is easy to over or under do things, but you want to do your best to avoid this. You should be mowing you lawn at least twice a week, but not too many times, as this will cause added stress to your grass. A proper and consistent mowing schedule in your lawn care routine will help your turf to become more resilient and able to thrive in less than perfect conditions. Make sure that you are cleaning up your clippings each and every time you mow, in order to avoid possible fungus and dry patches.
Also, if you are going to spray for pests, make sure that you hire a professional or find a pest spray that will not harm your lawn.
