During these summer months, extreme temperatures can play havoc on lawns everywhere. Hot afternoons can be difficult for grasses, plants, bushes, and trees. There are several things that you can do to improve the healthiness of your yard during this sizzling time. Follow some simple steps to improve your lawn’s heartiness and growing cycles.
One easy transition that you can do during the summer months is to not cut your grass too short. Blades of grass that are trimmed too low have a difficult time producing the energy they need to thrive. In order to achieve an ideal level of cutting, simply raise the blades of your lawn mower up a degree or two and stay on that setting until later in the year when temperatures turn cooler.
