Maintaining lawn in the summer sun


Maintaining lawn in the summer sun

With the beautiful sunny weather on our door step it is important to look after your lawn especially through the very hot days that are yet to come.

To ensure that you are mowing, watering and fertilising your lawn and gardenappropriately during these hot months, we've got some tips below to help you.

Mowing your lawn

Lawns that have been cut too low will have less ability to withstand stress. Mowing heights for warm season lawns (like Buffalo, Couch, and Kikuyu varieties) mowing heights should be approximately 1cm.

Tip - If you are not removing more than 1/3 of the length of the blade of the grass, drop the clippings back into the lawn. A lot of nutrients are in the tips of the clippings and you are basically recycling your lawn and re-fertilising rather than dumping your money in the green bin. This means of course you will have to cut more often but it's so much easier not stopping to empty the catcher and your lawn will benefit from this.

Effective watering

Watering once a week will keep your summer lawn varieties/warm season lawns looking good. The best time to water lawns during summer is early morning before the sun rises fully. This is to ensure that the water has a higher chance of being absorbed.

 

Wetting agents

A well fertilised lawn will have fewer problems (weeds, pests, diseases) compared to a non fertilised lawn or garden and as gardeners, we have to be a lot smarter about how we look after our gardens and lawns. Use of Wetting agents, mulches and selecting lawn varieties that require a lot less water is the way to go.
