3 Tips to Help You Keep Your Grass Green All Summer Long, Honolulu, Hawaii

Summer is the perfect time of year to enjoy your beautiful green landscape. But when the temperatures are high, and the climate is dry, it can take a toll on your lawn. To achieve lush green grass all summer long, the landscaping experts at Personal Touch Landscape in Honolulu, HI, recommend considering the following tips.

3 Lawn Care Tips to Follow This Summer

1. Water in the Morning

In the summer, early morning is the best time of day to water the grass. This is because the lawn needs sunlight to go through photosynthesis and grow. This is also one of the coolest times of the day, which means the grass will have the opportunity to absorb the water before it evaporates in the heat.

2. Don’t Mow Too Short

You should mow your lawn at a height no shorter than three to three and a half inches. This will keep the roots protected from the blades, and prevent the grass from drying out beneath the sun. Avoid mowing in the afternoon as the combined heat from the sun and mower can burn the lawn.

3. Use Fertilizer

To maintain healthy levels of growth, your lawn needs the nutrients from fertilizer. A well-fed lawn will also reduce weed growth and grow thicker. However, be careful not to apply too much fertilizer, as this can burn the grass. Talk to a landscaping professional about the best frequency for your yard.
