Summer Time Heat!

Now that the summer heat has officially set in you want to make sure your lawn is well protected. Here are a few key things you can do to make sure your lawn stays green and alive:
1) Make sure you are following proper watering instructions during these hot summer months. Never water in the middle of the day. You want to water your lawn 2-3 times a week for about 10-15 mins between the hours of 2am-10am.
2) Fescue lawns need to be cut to maintain a height of 3.5-4 inches. Any shorter will stress out the lawn and it will turn brown and possibly die. Keep your mower on the highest setting possible!
3) Make sure to apply a 5-3-0 fertilizer to your lawn in order to keep it strong and green. This application should be applied 6-8 weeks apart during the summer.
4) Last but definitely not least make sure to apply a fungicide on your lawn every 30 days through out the months of May-August. With the high humidity and heat, the lawn is a perfect breeding ground for Brown Patch which will destroy and possibly kill your lawn.
If you follow all of these rules then your lawn will stay green and thick throughout the summer months. Contact us today and we can schedule you for any of these you aren't already signed up for! Also if you mention this posting then we will give you 10% off your first treatment.
