Yard - American Lawnscape Lawn Service Maintenance - Lawn Treatment

Let’s talk about how heat intensifies and spring transitions into summer

As the North Texas heat intensifies and spring transitions into summer, our lawn care strategy evolves to prioritize the health and development of your turfgrass. While weed control remains an ongoing battle, a healthy lawn with strong roots and thick growth is the ultimate defense against unwanted invaders.

The Shift in Focus

During the cooler months, our primary focus was on preventing weeds and promoting root development through strategic applications. However, as the temperatures rise and the days lengthen, our attention shifts towards:

  • Encouraging Growth: We utilize fertilizers formulated for warm-season grasses common in North Texas. These fertilizers provide essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium to promote healthy blade growth and overall turf health.

  • Optimizing Watering: Proper watering practices are crucial during the hot summer months. We can assess your lawn’s specific needs and create a watering schedule that ensures your turf receives adequate hydration without promoting water waste.

  • Mowing Matters: Mowing at the correct height and frequency is essential for maintaining a healthy lawn. We can advise you on the ideal mowing height for your specific grass type and recommend a mowing schedule that promotes healthy growth and discourages weeds.

The Importance of Aeration

Throughout the year, but especially during the hot summer months, soil compaction can become an issue. Compacted soil restricts air, water, and nutrient flow to grass roots. Aeration is the process of creating small holes in the soil to alleviate compaction and improve these essential exchanges. Aeration can significantly improve the health and resilience of your lawn.
