Turf care for commercial landscaping is very similar to that of residential landscaping. The grass still needs to be nourished, cut, and maintained the same. Thus, the following tips will help you keep your lawn looking great throughout the summer:
- Feed your property’s landscape during the summer, but only if you expect rainfall. Too much fertilizer combined with high temperatures and low rainfall can burn and stress your lawn.
- The property should be watered in the morning and evening; never during the daytime. This will ensure that your lawn absorbs the moisture, and that it doesn’t simply evaporate into thin air.
- Have mowing done frequently. Once a week is sufficient for most lawns, and you can extend this out to two weeks during extremely dry periods when there is no rainfall.
- Don’t neglect weed removal. Weeds such as dandelions, clover, and daisies are relentless and will take over a landscape if they’re not dealt with judiciously. Spraying is usually effective, but sometimes, manual removal is required.
