Healthy Summer Lawn Tips
When it comes to summer in the Mid-South, in order to have a healthy lawn you need to know some basics to help you achieve the lawn you desire. Here are a few Memphis lawn care tips for the summer months ahead of us from the professionals at Green Meadow Landscapes in Collierville, TN.
- Regular applications of fertilizer can help decrease the amount of insects by decreasing the lawn’s water requirements.
- In extra high temperatures, your lawn needs no less than 1-1/2 inches of rain or water each week.
- Raise your mowing height in the summer. This will keep the grass blades longer, shading the soil, allowing the soil to stay more hydrated.
- Water early in the morning so that your lawn is protected against the harsh sun light.
