Top Tips for Maintaining Your Lawn During Summer

Posted on by Mr Lawnmowers

Summer is the time of year we make the most out of our gardens, with the sun shining there is nothing more relaxing than heading outside for a sunbathe, a barbecue or simply to sit and watch the world go by, but if our lawns are overgrown and patchy it can spoil our enjoyment. Here at Mr Lawnmowers we’re here to help, follow these handy tips on keeping your lawn in prime condition for those lazy summer days and come to us for all of your lawn maintenance needs.

1. Feed Your Lawn

It’s easy to forget that your lawn is a living thing that requires nutrition and nourishment, if you want to give your lawn the best chance this summer start to fertilise it before the height of the hot weather hits. Choose a slow release fertiliser so it’s fuller for longer and follow the instructions carefully to avoid negative effects.

2. Keep Your Lawn Watered

The heat from the summer sun takes its toll on your lawn and causes moisture to evaporate more quickly. Your lawn needs around 1 inch of water per week to stay healthy and over-watering can be as damaging as under-watering, it is best to water in the early morning rather than during the day or at night.

3. Keep Your Grass Trimmed

Keeping your lawn at an appropriate length keeps it healthy, don’t make a weekly or bi-monthly schedule, instead mow your lawn as needed as it will grow at different rates. Be sure to mow your lawn in the morning or evening rather than the hottest part of the day as this is the time when most moisture is lost.

4. Don’t Let Weeds Get The Best Of You

Take action against weeds as soon as you see them, don’t wait for them to become a problem. Using a spot-treatment weed control product is the most effective method of tackling weeds and ensuring they don’t ruin your summer.
