Get your lawn looking in tip-top shape this summer with our tips from the lawn experts!
The sun is rising early and setting late, giving you plenty of time for all those DIY projects you?ve been putting off. While you are busy decorating the inside of your house, think about your lawn that is out baking in the hot sun. High temperatures and irregular watering and mowing are the primary culprits that lead to fading color, weeds, insects, and disease. You may be on vacation, but your grass is alive and waiting for some TLC.

1. Watering in Summer Heat
If you think you get thirsty when it?s hot, imagine how your lawn feels. Keeping water conservation in mind is very important in some parts of the country, but even given that, there are ways to keep your lawn well hydrated and looking good.
Water first thing. Watering in early morning gives time for the soil to soak it up before it begins evaporating under the midday sun. However, because a lawn that?s continuously wet can encourage fungal diseases, set the sprinklers to start just after the dew dries on the grass blades.
Water past the topsoil. If the water doesn?t penetrate past the top layer of soil, it will dry out before the grass can make the most of it. Watering deeply also forces the grass roots to grow as they look for moisture, which makes them stronger and better able to deal with summer stress. Water less frequently. You don?t have to water as often as long as the lawn is getting enough water over a week?s time. An established lawn needs about an inch of water every seven days. It?s easy to check on that by putting some empty tuna cans around the lawn and seeing how much water is in them at the end of a week.
Do a simple test. If you can poke a screwdriver into the ground without much effort, your lawn is getting enough water.
2. Mow the Right Way

It sounds like a good idea to let the grass grow long and then mow it down short so you can stretch out the times between needing to get the lawnmower out. But the lawn will suffer for it.
Sharpen up. Sharp mower blades make nicer cuts, and that?s what you want, because ragged edges are an entry point for disease and pests. You can generally expect a blade to stay sharp enough through about ten hours of mowing time. It?s a good idea to have a spare sharpened blade at the ready in case the one you?re using stops operating efficiently midway through a job.
Cut just enough. Your lawn has a recommended height range. Look up what yours is and then keep your mower set to remove just the top third of the blades ...
