Tips For Lawn Care During Summer Days in Texas

A survey by the Harris Poll for the National Association of Landscape Professionals indicated that approximately 67% of Americans agree that expert landscaping treatments allow them to have a nicer yard than without it. While professional landscaping services allow many homeowners to have a wonderful lawn, there are some great tips you can consider when it comes to maintaining a healthy, lush, and green lawn. Let’s explore a few of them below!

Make Sure Your Grass Is the Right Height Before Mowing

It’s no secret that Texas heat can be relentless. Grass that is too short when mowed can succumb to burning and scorching. Grass that is tall provides shade for the soil and can even reduce water evaporation. This can lead to deeper roots while preventing weed seeds from germinating. So, try to stay cognizant of the height of your grass before mowing it so that it can protect your soil and remain healthy.

These days, homeowners may work with a company that offers natural lawn care to keep the grass healthy. In addition to mowing grass at a height that allows for soil protection and shade, you may choose a business that specializes in organic lawn care services and natural lawn care. Be sure that you ask about their services and how those treatments can complement your lawn mowing and maintenance.

Water Your Lawn Properly and Consistently

Another tip in summer lawn maintenance is to water your lawn properly and consistently. While working with your natural lawn care company, you can ask how their treatments and your lawn watering schedule can create a healthy green lawn. Many organic lawn care companies will offer natural lawn treatments that are a fantastic complement to irrigation systems. So be sure to ask about the treatments that your natural lawn care company has and how your lawn watering helps to enhance them and creates a lush lawn you’ll enjoy all summer long.

Don’t Let Debris Sit in Your Yard

While summer is the time to bring out the water guns, plastic pools, and other summer supplies, you want to be sure that you remove those items from your grass after use. The wonderful pool you bought for the kids for summer fun can suffocate your grass left on the lawn for a considerable amount of time.

You also want to remember to pick up any trash that is thrown onto your lawn. Unfortunately, there are people who use neighborhood lawns as their personal dumping grounds. Some of the items that are thrown on your lawn can also damage it. Trash or other debris on your lawn may contribute to some browning in spots. You may also see a negative chemical reaction after some of your natural lawn care services. So, consider getting to the habit of going out each day to pick up trash, litter, and summer toys that are on the lawn.
