When summer rolls around, it’s important to adjust your lawn care routine to ensure that your grass stays healthy and vibrant despite the heat. Here are some tips for summertime lawn care that will help you maintain a lush, green lawn throughout the season.

Summer Yard Maintenace Recommendations

Lanier Yardscapes, your Peachtree City Lawn Care Specialists, can help you keep your yard pristine and green even in Georgia’s hot summer climate. Here are some yard maintenance recommendations.

  1. Mowing: One of the most important aspects of summertime lawn care is proper mowing. It’s crucial to mow your lawn regularly but avoid cutting it too short. Taller grass provides shade for the soil, which helps to retain moisture and prevent weed growth. Aim to keep your grass at a height of around 3 inches during the summer months.
  2. Watering: Proper watering is essential for maintaining a healthy lawn in the summer. Water deeply and infrequently to encourage deep root growth. It’s best to water your lawn in the early morning to reduce evaporation and be mindful of any local water restrictions that may be in place. Lanier Yardscapes can also help you with Sprinkler Installation and maintenance.
  3. Fertilizing: Applying fertilizer to your lawn in the summer can help to keep it healthy and green. Choose a slow-release fertilizer that is specifically formulated for summer use, and be sure to follow the application instructions carefully.
  4. Weed Control: Weeds can quickly take over a lawn if left unchecked, so it’s important to stay on top of weed control during the summer. Consider using a pre-emergent herbicide to prevent weed seeds from germinating, and spot-treat any weeds that do appear.
  5. Aeration: Aerating your lawn in the summer can help to alleviate soil compaction and improve air and water penetration. Consider renting an aerator or hiring a professional to aerate your lawn if it’s showing signs of compaction.
  6. Pest Control: Keep an eye out for pests that can damage your lawn, such as grubs, chinch bugs, and armyworms. If you notice signs of pest damage, consider using an appropriate insecticide to control the infestation.
  7. Avoiding Traffic: During the summer, your lawn is more susceptible to damage from foot traffic and heavy objects. Encourage family members and guests to stay off the grass as much as possible to prevent compaction and stress on the lawn.

Alex C.

Lanier Yardscapes came out to my property swiftly upon inquiry to give an estimate for our outdoor lighting project. I had several quotes, but it was the customer service and attention to detail that made our choice to go with this company. Communication process was smooth and during installation they took care to treat our home with respect. I would highly recommend this team in my own personal future projects or any interested in making their outdoor space enjoyable.

Jason R.

Alex and his entire Team were amazing! They were concerned with every detail and took the time to get everything just right, not stopping until we were completely satisfied. We highly recommend them.

Barbara F.

Alex and his crew do great work! They are all very nice guys, respectful and courteous as they work. The attention to detail is exemplary, and the whole crew take pride in the job they do, something that’s hard to find these days. They work as a team, and when Alex is on site, he works just as hard as everyone else. Very pleased with my landscaping, they are professionals.

Nikole L.

Lanier Landscapes did an excellent job! Ron and his crew worked hard and made sure that everything was done to our specifications. The crew was also very knowledgeable and cleaned up after themselves. When we learned that our sprinkler system needed an overhaul, they informed us ahead of time what kind of pricing we were looking at. Easy to work with! Ron was a hoot!

Bill M.

Alex Lanier and his crew did a wonderful job with a new stone patio for my back yard including some Landscaping and mulch! My wife is overjoyed. Not only did they do a great job but when I wanted a minor adjustment they came back out and did it for me for no charge. He also came in under budget for the mulch and did a Super job! It is a shame you only get 5 stars they deserve a 6 star rating. I will defiantly use them again and would highly recommend them to anyone else. Just know that because they are so good you need to book them well in advance.

Charles H.

Fantastic experience! Very professional in all phases of grading, irrigation preparation and sod installation. All of the crew were as nice as could be. We had some time constraints and Alex and his men handled them without hesitation. Stellar outfit!
