How To Manage your Lawn In Times Of Heat

Maintaining a lush, green lawn during periods of drought and heat stress can be particularly challenging for cool-season turfgrasses like Kentucky bluegrass, fescue, and ryegrass. These grasses thrive in cooler temperatures and can struggle when exposed to prolonged heat and dry conditions. Proper watering and mowing practices are crucial to help your lawn survive and thrive through tough times.

Water your lawn deeply and infrequently, aiming for about 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week, including rainfall. Early morning watering is ideal to reduce evaporation and minimize disease risk. Adjust your mowing practices by setting mower blades higher and mowing less frequently to reduce stress on the grass.

Understanding the signs of heat stress, disease, and insect infestations is also essential for effective lawn care. By following these tips and closely monitoring your lawn’s health, you can maintain a healthy, resilient lawn even in the harshest summer conditions.
