Landcare news and tips
August is coming to a close and many lawns in DFW are struggling to stay healthy under the scorching Texas sun. The lush, green grass you may have seen in the middle of springtime, may have started showing signs of turning brown and drying out. However, there are some ways to ensure your grass stays green well into the fall months.
When we experience extreme heat in DFW, as we have recently, mowing your lawn may be the last thing that you want to do or pay someone else to do. However, it’s exactly during those times that it’s important to keep your lawn mowed on a regular basis. Keep in mind though, that how you mow is just as important as how frequently you mow. Keep the grass a little longer in length during the summer heat than you may have in other seasons. Leaving it too short can dry out the soil and burn the roots.
Summertime calls for more frequent and longer periods of watering to ensure good hydration. Early morning watering is best and some more, light watering in the evening is okay if drought conditions are present. However, too much watering at night can encourage fungus growth. Avoid watering in the afternoon when the sun is the hottest as the water will just evaporate quickly.

Reseed your lawn as needed to promote new growth and keep out weeds, then follow up with fertilizing to make sure your lawn has the nutrients needed to begin and maintain growth. Fertilizer helps your grass create a deeper roots system so it can survive more extreme weather conditions. This will ensure your lawn stays green longer, but the correct fertilizer for your type of grass is required for optimum results.
