Caring For Lawns In The Delaware Valley Since 1981

Summer

Our lawns naturally want to take a break at this time of year.  Over the next couple of months, the cool-season grass that we use will slowly go dormant to some degree.  The lawn won’t look as green or as thick – but it’s just nature’s way! 

Watering
In Spring, we should get plenty of rain and not have to worry about watering just yet. But as we begin to dry out over the next couple of months, water will be essential to keeping the lawn green. We’ve found that almost every sprinkler system we encounter is set up wrong, so make sure to follow these guidelines
Cutting
Keep the mower on a higher setting throughout the summer – 4 inches is best. A longer blade of grass will hold more moisture and shade the root system.
Insect Control
This treatment will eliminate any grubs, chinch bugs, army worm, sod webworm and other turf destroying pests. It’s also provides excellent control of mosquitoes, ants, fleas and ticks
Weed Control
The weed control covers all of the usual weeds like dandelion and clover, and will also eliminate or knock down the summer annual weeds like nutsedge and crabgrass that are popping up now. This material must be watered-in to be effective. If there is no rain for 2 or 3 days after this service, please soak the lawn!
