Beat the Heat: Tips for Keeping Your Lawn Green this Summer

Summer is nearly here, and it’s the time of year when most people start thinking about their lawn and getting it ready for the warm months. One of the best ways to get it summer-ready is by using irrigation systems. Maple Grove residents often come to companies like Advanced Irrigation when they need these systems installed and/or maintained. So we’d like to offer some tips on how to keep your lawn looking great and healthy all year round, especially in the summer when lawns tend to get dry and brown.

Fertilizing and mowing regularly can help keep your lawn looking great no matter what the weather, but the most important thing you can do for your lawn is to use irrigation systems. Being sure you get the water deep in the soil will help keep it looking nice and green. Irrigation systems can help ensure the water is reaching the grass’ roots. The rule of thumb is to water deeply but infrequently: this will encourage the roots to grow deep into the soil. If you water too frequently, the grass will grow shorter roots and the grass will dry out during dry spells and droughts. It is also recommended that you use your irrigation systems during the morning so less of the water evaporates in the heat and more goes into the ground.

If you come to us for irrigation systems, we can put one in place that will water your grass properly and keep it looking pretty and green throughout the entire summer. Irrigation systems can make maintaining your lawn a lot easier since they take care of watering the grass. So you’ll have a great-looking lawn with little effort on your part!
