Summer is in full swing and we know that you have worked hard to get your yard in tip top shape for the warm weather. From getting your sprinkler system ready to pulling those weeds, there is a lot involved with keeping up with your yard, but the work doesn’t stop there. In order to keep your lawn in tip-top shape this summer, it is going to require a little tender, loving care.
Mowing Your Lawn
No one wants their yard to look like an overgrown jungle that needs some serious maintenance, but keeping your grass too short can actually damage your lawn and leave it looking more like a desert than the previously mentioned oasis. When you mow your lawn, it is best to leave the blades a little longer than you might like, in order to protect your yard from the sun’s harsh rays. If they’re left too short, your lawn will be easily exposed to and scorched by the hot summer sun.
Fertilizing Your Lawn
Alright, so you didn’t take our advice mentioned above. Now you are left with a short, brown, and slightly crunchy yard. That’ alright, we can help with that too. If your lawn growth has slowed or seems to have stopped, you should apply fertilizer with nitrogen to your yard. This will help revitalize your lawn and help restore growth. You can easily follow the application instructions that are located on the bag label.
Watering Your Lawn
We know that mowing your lawn isn’t the most enjoyable task there is out there, but your lawn needs a sufficient amount of water to stay healthy and green all summer long. It needs at least 1”-1 ½” of water every week. Instead of watering daily, try deep watering about 2-3 times a week. Also, stick to watering your lawn early in the morning.
These are all fairly simple tasks that you could easily do on your own, but if you have some more extensive landscaping or lawn care work that needs to be done for your Hyattsville property, then call the team of professionals at Top Team Lawn Care. We can help you keep your yard looking fabulous all year long.
