WHAT DOES YOUR LAWN NEED NOW?
SUMMER LAWN TIPS: ~ Parts taken from “The Science Behind
Mowing” by Parwinder Grewall, Ph.D
The cutting of
grass is one of the most important cultural practices in
lawn maintenance. It has been demonstrated that higher
mowing heights promote the development of deeper root
systems, Lower mowing heights leads to low tolerance in
grass plants. Improper mowing practices can have a
negative effect on the resistance of lawn grasses to
insects. Lawns mowed at 3 inches or higher had
increased amounts of insect defensive components than
those mowed at 1 or 2 inches. Lawns mowed at 3 inches
or higher remained cooler and required less watering.
Therefore we recommend that you raise the mowing deck to
the highest possible setting.
Do not wait
until your lawn turns brown to begin a watering
routine. The first sign of drought is loss of
springiness and a general dull, wilting appearance.
Water deeply to a soil depth of 2” to 3” at least once
per week. Water in the early morning before 8:00am, so
that the water can have a chance to get down into the
soil before the sun evaporates it. Do not water late at
night or in the afternoon. Remember that if you do not
water your lawn and it turns brown, it is very difficult
to determine if your lawn is brown from lack of water or
that it has a disease or insect problem.
