Summer Lawn Care Tips to Keep Your Yard Looking Its Best

Many people think of summer as the time to host outdoor activities in their backyard. However, it is also the time when you must take measures to protect your grass from the summer heat. Let’s take a close look at five tips that will keep your lawn in tip-top shape during the summer months.

Mow Your Lawn Correctly

It’s not unusual for many homeowners to mow their lawns short. This may seem like a great idea, but cutting your grass too short can hinder its health.

What happens when you mow your lawn too short? It will be extremely difficult for the soil to maintain the moisture your grass needs to survive the hottest period of the year. Your grass will not be healthy and productive if the soil is dry.

Keep Your Lawnmower Blades Sharp

Keep your mower blades sharp. Sharp blades will cut your grass with pure precision. However, dull blades have the tendency to cut grass unevenly. A poorly cut lawn will become an entry way for disease.


There’s a possibility that certain patches of your lawn are not growing properly. Treating these problem areas with seeds will nourish them back to health. Seed once and give the seeds a chance to penetrate the soil. Make sure you water your lawn after you seed. You are bound to see positive results within several weeks.

Remove the Weeds

Weeds are a big nuisance for any lawn. Weeds can ruin your lawn’s appearance, and they can have a negative impact on your lawn’s health.

Routine walks on your lawn will help you spot newly formed weeds. It’s important to remove them before they take root and grow. If that happens, they will try to stake their claim in your grass.

Maintain a Proper Watering Schedule

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that grass needs water during the summer months. Make an earnest effort to maintain a proper watering schedule. This is an easy way to keep your lawn healthy and happy.
