Summer Lawn Care Tips


Continue to mow grass regularly during this month to encourage good growth

Regular mowing is the best way to ensure your garden has a good lawn. Once a week is fine but for a really good lawn twice a week.

During dry weather raise the blades of the mower and mow less frequently.

The grass is best left a little longer during dry periods because it will not be growing as vigorously.

If it’s very dry leave the clippings on the lawn to act as mulch and help reduce moisture loss.

Don’t Water Established Lawns Unless Absolutely Necessary

If you have to water, really soak it once a week, rather than a sprinkling every day.

Established lawns will turn brown in hot weather but it’s not worth wasting water on them, as the grass will soon recover by itself.

Give the Lawn a Liquid Feed Unless You Did So in June

Most lawns will benefit from a quick boost and there are many types of product on the market.

New Lawns (Laid or Seeded Earlier on in the Year) Will Require Watering in Dry Weather

This is vitally important; if the lawn shrinks when it dries it’s virtually impossible to undo the damage later, so please keep it watered regularly.
