The growing season reaches its apex as the days become longer and warmer. The excess heat that is produced during this time can put your lawn at serious risk. Discover how to get your lawn to thrive during the summer with our summer lawn care tips:
Correct watering and adequate conservation is vital all year round, but it becomes especially important when the resulting hot and dry weather causes deficits of water or even a drought.

Inspect your yard regularly for indications of irregular texture and color, which could be signs that disease or pests have caused damage.
If your yard does not have lush and uniform green color, contact the Lawn Doctor in your area for a FREE Lawn Evaluation and learn what summer lawn maintenance tips we can offer.
Maintaining proper lawn care throughout the year can keep your yard healthy and assist in the prevention of disease, weeds as well as unwanted pests. These insects can find their way into your home without you even realizing. To put a stop to these insects before they become a problem, Lawn Doctor offers Pest Control to prevent bugs from entering your house before it is too late. Fight outdoor pests by applying lawn treatments for ticks, fleas, fire ants as well as other insects.
Though most people with lawns typically focus purely on their yard, it can be equally important not to neglect your shrubs and trees. Properly maintained landscaping can add dimensionality to your home, while increasing its value.
On a hot summer day, you may want to mow your lawn in flip flops and shorts, but Lawn Doctor’s expert advice on performing lawn care in the summer will remind you that staying safe by wearing shoes with closed toes and long pants is highly recommended while working on your lawn.
Also, it is integral to remain hydrated by drinking lots of water when you are doing any work outside.
