Summer Lawn Care Service
Your trusted partner for summer lawn care
During the warmer months, keeping to a lawn mowing schedule can be tricky, as many days are filled with holidays, outdoor activities and backyard parties. Your lawn is however dependent on regular cutting and maintenance in order to remain strong and healthy. We typically recommend mowing weekly for best results. When you sign up for our lawn mowing services, you can enjoy the season knowing that your lawn will get the care it needs.
Water, mow, repeat
The most important elements of carrying for your lawn during the summer is watering and mowing. Watering during early morning or late evening is recommended so that moisture can soak in rather than evaporate. Regular mowing is equally important. We recommend mowing weekly, although during really hot spells we may advise that you reduce the amount between mows.
When you sign up for our lawn mowing services, you can enjoy the season knowing that your lawn will receive the care it needs, on schedule. Our trusted professionals know exactly the right height to keep your lawn at its best, depending on the weather and the type of grass on your lawn. For most lawns, this is about 1-1.5 inches high.
For lawns that experience more traffic and wear and tear, we may raise the height slightly. Mowing too short can allow for weak grass and subsequently more weeds.
Keep weeds and pests at bay
While weed prevention is best done during spring, sometimes pesky weeds crop up during summer and post-emergent intervention is necessary. Our lawn care specialists are experts in identifying the issue, applying the proper tools, techniques and amount of product and recommending a schedule for follow-up treatments if necessary. Insects and pests also come out in full force during summer. Not all insects cause problems for your yard.
In fact, some insects like worms, ladybugs, bees and butterflies will actually help boost the health of your lawn and garden. But if you’re dealing with pests like grubs or crabgrass, those are problems that will sneak up on you as a property owner. Whether you’re faced with weed or insect problems, we have the prevention and treatment methods to get rid of invaders without losing your lawn.
By summer, many lawns start to show signs of wear and tear (especially high traffic areas). Our tailored lawn maintenance programs can help ensure your yard is getting the extra TLC it needs to stay strong and healthy. Depending on your specific situation, we may recommend fertilizing, aerating, seeding or sodding. Contact us today and we’ll help you enjoy the beauty of your yard all season long.
