Livingston County Lawn Care Company Helps Keep Lawns Hydrated

By: Ever So Green, LLC
HOWELL, Mich. - July 7, 2022 - PRLog -- We've had a hot start to summer in Michigan, with temps reaching near 90 degrees as early as mid-May! When the dog days of summer arrive, it's important to recognize the signs of heat stress on your lawn.

Proper watering is critical to maintaining the health of your lawn throughout the summer!

Not sure if your lawn is getting enough water? After your lawn is watered, take a long-blade screwdriver and stick it straight into the soil. If your lawn is properly watered, the blade should puncture about 3 inches (in clay soil) into the soil. If the screwdriver has trouble going on, and the soil is hard and dry, your lawn is likely dehydrated.

Remember, overwatering can cause more damage to your lawn than underwatering. You don't want to drown your grass! Watering your lawn every day can ruin your turf.

Some signs that you're overwatering include development of thatch, fungus, weeds like nutsedge and crabgrass, and damage from insects.

On the other hand, signs of a drought include dry patches, visible footprints on grass, and slowed growth. If you notice your lawn has patches of straw-colored grass, it doesn't spring back up as nicely, or you have to mow less, these are all good signs that your lawn isn't getting enough water.

Finally, pair your watering schedule with a proper fertilization plan! Over time, lawns tend to leech nutrients, leaving them deficient. For thicker, greener grass, your lawn needs the right nutrition, and that can be hard to manage on your own. Hiring a lawn care company in Livingston County to fertilize is the best option because not only do they know the right type of fertilizer to best feed your lawn, but they'll manage the proper timing and application that can be hard for the average homeowner to achieve.
