Hot summer temperatures can harm your lawn if you do not perform proper maintenance. This infographic from a power equipment company in Olympia shows you what you need to do through the seasons to keep your grass looking great.
Mow grass whenever it is growing, provided the ground isn't too wet or icy to walk on. In spring, mow once a week with the blades at their highest setting, and gradually lower them as growth accelerates. Use a box to collect the clippings, which can be composted, or use a "mulching mower" which doesn't remove the grass but chops it into fine pieces, returning nutrients to the lawn. Rake off thick patches of clippings, which will damage the turf.
If you water your lawn at night, water left on grass blades overnight can increase the chances of fungus growth. Take a look at this infographic about landscaping in Mesquite to find out when to water your lawn and discover other care tips!
