Modern Home with green lawn and treesThe harsh summer heat can take its toll on your lawn, especially in warm areas like The Villages, FL. You'll have to take special care in order to keep your grass lush and healthy. Try some of these tips this summer to keep your lawn in good shape.
  • Mowing your grass at a taller height during summer helps keep the lawn healthier. Taller grass blades provide shade for the soil, which reduces water evaporation. It can also help prevent weed seeds from germinating.
  • After mowing, let the clippings lie in place. This is called grass-cycling and it doubles as fertilizer, which saves you time and money.
  • Water your lawn deeply and less frequently for healthier grass. It helps roots to grow deeper.
  • Familiarize yourself with what type of grass you have. If it's a warm-season turf, you'll need to ensure it has the proper nutrients for strong growth during summer. Cool-season turf should not be fertilized until fall.
  • You may find dead spots on the lawn if your dog tends to relieve itself in one area. If you notice this occurring, flush the area with lots of water to dilute the urine in the soil. It may be helpful to create a mulched area off to the side where your dog can do its business without harming your grass.
  • Avoid parking cars or golf carts on your lawn, which can lead to soil compaction and dead grass. During bouts of extreme heat, you may even wish to limit foot traffic on the grass as well.
