We’re not shocked that homeowner’s become worried about their turf as the summer’s heat bears down on their lawns. After all, if lawns aren’t prepared for the hot, dry weather, there’s a good chance they’ll die. And while this is a blunt assessment, it’s meant to highlight just how critical it is that you treat your turf right before the “dog days of summer” arrive.
Treatment should start with our Summer Fertilizing.
Grass slowly consumes fertilizer
Unless lawns consistently receive at least 1 inch of water per week all summer, they’ll naturally go dormant. As a comparison, think about how animals, such as bears, hibernate during the winter. These massive omnivores eat more than normal during autumn to store body fat. Bears then live off this fat during the winter – slowly consuming it when needed. And when spring arrives, they wake up from their deep sleep and get ready for the spring.
Sure, lawns don’t hibernate quite like bears (nor at the same time of year), but the concept is similar. In ideal situations, hibernation won’t kill bears, nor does it kill grass. Grass stores nutrients (fertilizer) and uses them when needed to survive during the summer. Our Summer Fertilizing will provide your turf with one last shot of nutrients before blades go dormant.
Watering and fertilizing will keep your lawn healthy all year
Watering and fertilizing throughout the summer won’t damage your turf.
Our Summer Fertilizing is a slow-release fertilizer, which means the turf stores the nutrients and uses them only when needed. This prevents fertilizer burn.
With summer comes drought, heat and harmful UV rays. These can all damage your turf within hours. That’s why it’s imperative we do everything we can to ensure your turf is well prepared to defend itself. Our Summer Fertilizing will do just that.
