“When is the perfect time to mow the lawn?” According to lawn maintenance providers, when the height of your grass has already reached 3-5cm tall, this is the right time to cut it. The basic rule of mowing is to never cut more than one-third of the leaf blade. In the event you will do the mowing by yourself, make sure the lawn mower is at its top performance to guarantee precise cutting.

Do you notice unusual dullness on your grass? Summer months could be extremely hot, making it more inviting to the growth of unwanted lawn diseases like lawn grubs. Keep in mind, your goal is to keep the grass green and if you aren’t sure what diseases are infecting your lawn, call in an expert, he is highly trained to detect all types of lawn diseases and can provide the best solution to treat the problem.

Among the problems that homeowners face in the growth of unsightly elements on lawns called “weeds”. If you want to lessen the massive growth of weeds, seek the professional services of a gardener.

Summer months could easily dry the soil and cause browning effect on your grass. Adequate watering is required to maintain the healthy condition of your grass. The recommended time to water your lawn is early in the morning or late in the evening to avoid quick evaporation of water in the air. In case you are planning to invest on water sprinklers, ask your landscape provider where you can position them effectively.

Fertilizing your lawn is a must to maintain its greenish appearance. Visit your DIY garden store near your area and inquire about the lawn care products like fertilizers to keep your grass green all throughout the summer season.

I do hope you will find these tips useful as you perform any lawn care maintenance. If you want to ensure you will benefit from a luscious lawn where you could enjoy hosting family gatherings like barbeques, parties or simply watching kids play, call a landscape specialist to check on the condition of your grass and other plants.
