Summer lawn care becomes crucial for those living in Gainesville, Jacksonville, Ocala, Tallahassee, Tampa and throughout Northern Florida. As the days become hotter and the sun continues to shine brightly down on our lawns, the grass can really suffer if it is not receiving proper nutrition and care. Some of the biggest threats to your lawn this summer could be from insects, general wear and tear, even over-watering. So before you find your lawn looking a little weathered this summer, here are a few tips from the FL lawn care professionals to keep the grass lush and healthy.
Be proactive to prevent lawn pests - Sod webworms, chinch bugs, mole crickets as well as many other potential lawn pests in Florida can leave your lawn and landscape damaged. We recommend contacting our pest control professionals to help prevent lawn pests before they strike.
Keep lawn watered, but not too much - Watering the grass is an important component to keep the lawn looking healthy. Dry grass will look dull, dead and brown but on the other hand, too much water can leave a lawn that is soggy and prone to lawn fungus. Not sure when to water? Ask our lawn care pros about our irrigation services to help take the worry of too much or too little water off your shoulders.
Remember to mow frequently - Lawn mowing may be simple with the help of a ride on lawn mower but it is important to remember that the goal is not to cut the grass way down and then wait for it to grow tall. Ideally, lawn mowing should be done frequently but keeping the grass at least few inches tall in order to promote maximum nutrition and health.
