Keep your lawn healthy, green and weed free this summer with a few of our summer lawn care tips.
- Most lawns need 1 – 1.5 inches of rain a week to keep the grass green and healthy looking all summer long. Without enough moisture, our tough Minnesota lawns can become dormant in periods of little rain and high temps. A dormant lawn stops growing and turns brown, but does not die. Your lawn can survive this way for up to 6-8 weeks depending on the soil and grass type.
- Keeping your lawn longer, around 3” is the ideal height this time of year. Grass cut at this height has deeper roots than a lawn that is cut very short. Deeper roots allow grass to get more water and nutrients from soil.
- Avoid seeding, fertilizing and applying weed killers when it is very hot and when your lawn may be dry.
