Everyone wants to have the title of the ‘greenest grass in the neighborhood,' and you can too. Summer lawn care is very important especially during the hot summer months that we have in Cheyenne. The high temperatures and lack of water that we experience here can help make this a tricky task. According to RealEstate.com, in Wyoming watering and insect control are two key factors that will help you obtain and maintain the lawn you've always wanted.
Not enough water can kill your lawn, but too much water can weaken your root system. It is key that your lawn gets just the right amount of water. But how do you know what the ‘right' amount of water is? Some people believe that several light waterings a week will help produce healthy grass, but this will actually weaken your lawns ability to establish and absorb the water it needs. Instead, a deep watering once a week will maintain a healthy lawn. For lawns that are less than three years old, two deep waterings a week would suffice.
It is also important to maintain your sprinkler system, if you have one. Brown spots or lack of grass growing around the heads of sprinklers can mean that you a have a blocked spray pattern, improper spacing or pressure of sprinklers or that your sprinkler head is at the wrong height. Sprinkler systems are a very useful thing to have in maintaining a healthy long, but when they aren't working properly they could potentially damage your lawn so be sure to maintain them.
Summer time brings sunny days and warm weather, but also brings those tiny bugs, like mosquitoes, that are out to get you and your lawn. There are two ways that you can protect your lawn from these harmful bugs. One option is to spray your lawn with an insecticide. The other option is to just let nature take its course. There are many bugs lurking around your backyard that will act as predators and kill the bad bugs that you don't want. Spiders are a prime example of this and can take the nuisance insect population under control for you. If you have aphids (small plant-eating insects) attacking your landscaping, you can go down to your local nursery and pick up some lady bugs which are a predator to aphids and will help protect your landscaping.
Now that summer is here we all want to have beautiful lawns to enjoy while we are outside. Use these few tips to help make sure you have the best looking lawn on the block. Have more tips on how to maintain a healthy lawn this summer? I encourage you to share any and all tips you may have with the rest of our readers!
