Saving Your Lawn From Summer Sun

Virginia Commercial MaintenanceWhen the heat of the summer hits Hampton Roads and our many cities and country areas, lawns can suffer greatly.  Here are a few tips to help you save your lawn.

1.  Water regularly – Your lawn is a plant and needs water to survive.  When the rain doesn’t fall you need to supply your lawn with some moisture.

2.  Fertilize – A healthy lawn can survive the stress of a drought.  Be sure to feed your lawn per the directions or have a professional feed it.

3.  Cut  – When mowing your grass, be sure your blades are very sharp.  While it may seem like it saves time to cut your lawn shorter, it is best to only remove 1/3 of each blade of grass.  This will keep your lawn healthy and keep the weeds out.
