           Summer is here !!!!   Sharpen and Raise your blades !!!

                                                                                               Summer Mowing

One of the most important things to remember when mowing your lawn in the summer time is to have sharp blades !! Dull blades will rip and tare your grass and causing damage that will keep your grass from receiving the proper nutrients from feeding and watering the lawn. Also proper height adjustment prevents scalping the lawn and keeps you from damaging your already fragile lawn in the heat of summer.  

                                                                                                          Feed your lawn !!!

                             Next to watering your lawn the most important thing to do is feed it !!!

Fertilizer can help your lawn grow thick and lush, but if it's not used properly, it can actually damage the grass. A slow-release nitrogen fertilizer is best, and no more than 1 pound (0.45 kilograms) of nitrogen should be spread per 1,000 square feet (93 square meters). It should be applied early in the season when the turf begins actively growing, so the timing varies among regions. Fertilizer should not be applied too early or late, however, as lingering cold or early heat can stress the grass. Check the packaging to see when and how much you should water after applying the fertilizer.

 

                                                                        Overseeding your lawn in summer

First try to address the soil conditions that prevented grass from growing in the past. Call your local Cooperative Extension office to find out where you can get a soil test; this will tell you what nutrients your lawn is lacking. Once you've corrected your soil composition, aerate the ground to avoid any problems with soil compaction.

Now you're ready to buy seed and spread it on your lawn. Before choosing a seed, determine which varieties will work best in your region of the country and with the amount of sunlight  in your yard. Then roughly estimate the size of the area where you plan to plant, as seed coverage is recommended in pounds per square foot. If you're spreading the seed over a large area, it is best to use a broadcast spreader, but smaller areas can be seeded by hand.

Don't ignore the grass once you've planted it. Water regularly to maintain soil moisture and fertilize with a slow-release, low-nitrogen product . Mow when the grass reaches 3 or 4 inches (7.6 to 10 centimeters) in height, but try not to trim off more than a half-inch (1-centimeter) as doing so could stress the plant .  Not all lawn care companies are equal.
