It’s easy to correlate spring with lawn care, but you won’t want to rule out proper care in the summer months. Lawn care during the summer months is not something to skip on when working toward making happy and healthy turf. When you are taking care of your grass, there are so many different options and actions that can be taken that you might be unsure on how to proceed.
Taking the time to consider each need your turf may have can help you choose the right care plan for you. Whether that be taking into account weed control, caring for bermudagrass, pest infestations, lawn disease, a fertilization schedule, or whatever it may be, ensuring your yard is at it’s best will allow you to enjoy your outdoor space to the fullest extent.
The perfect lawn can also be the perfect graduation party space, a quiet night around the fire, or an excitement filled backyard barbeque. You should never underestimate the power of a healthy lawn! Considering all your options can be the best thing you do for your yard all summer.
This type of grass showed up in 1807, and it loves its warm climates, which is why Georgia sees so much of it. Bermudagrass grows actively throughout the hottest months of the year, making it extremely important for top care during the summer. Taking care of this turf is a bit high maintenance, so most people usually opt for eight treatments to create a healthy lawn.
Using a pre-emergent herbicide will help control the annual grass in the early spring, followed by treatments that include pre and post-emergent weed control, control-release fertilization, and preparing your lawn for winter. All of this can help your bermudagrass become bright and vibrant.
Caring for your turf is not universal, different turf requires different care, and it’s no different when it comes to Zoysia grass. There are eleven species of Zoysia grass total, so getting to know your type can help your turf thrive. It requires a lengthy process to keep it in tip-top shape like any other special grass. It includes weed control, granular fertilizers, and preparing for winter with pre-emergent fertilizers and lime supplements.
“Fine Fescue” technically encompasses different types of fescue lawns, including red, chewing, hards, and sheep, to name just a few. This type of grass doesn’t hold too well in hot weather, so in Georgia, fescue grass requires a little TLC. Treating fine fescue with weed control treatments, iron supplements, high-phosphorus fertilizers, and other seasonal fertilizers will allow your type of fescue to be green and inviting.
