While the summer is a time for most Wheaton-area homeowners to enjoy their lawn, it can also be tough on your lawn. Excessive heat and drought can be demanding on your lawn, and making sure that the proper precautions are taken can go a long way towards keeping your lawn looking great throughout the entire summer and into the subsequent seasons. With the strategies we offer at Lawn Doctor of Batavia-Aurora, we help lawns throughout the area during the summer with our lawn services in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, West Chicago, Winfield, Geneva, and Lombard, IL.
There are a handful of simple preventative measures you can take to avoid having a spotty, patchy, and unhealthy lawn this summer. Here are a few quick tips to get you started:
- Water longer and deeply to hydrate your lawn’s roots.
- If the turf is looking dry and stressed, try to stay off the lawn as much as possible until you can water or until we receive some restorative rain.
- If foot traffic increases, keep an eye out for signs of compacted soil.
- Don’t water too often or at night, as fungus can become a problem with wet leaves.
- Monitor your lawn for signs of insect damage, as a number of insects thrive in hot dry conditions.

For a hassle-free route to a lawn that stays healthy all summer, choose the premium lawn services we offer at Lawn Doctor of Batavia-Aurora. Here are just a few of the many services we can implement to repair and maintain your lawn in the warmer months:
Fertilization. The heat and reduced moisture of summer can be tough on your lawn’s composition, causing it to expend more nutrients than normal to maintain healthy growth. With our fertilization treatments, our team replenishes your lawn’s nutrient stores for ongoing health.
Pest Control. Pests often thrive in the summer months causing a threat to the health of your lawn. We offer cutting-edge pest control treatments for lawn pests including chinch bugs, sod webworm and for nuisance insects including mosquitoes and ticks.
Weed Control. Along with pests, weeds often thrive in the summer months. Our Lawn Maintainer program makes short work of both broadleaf and grassy weeds while putting preventative measures in place to keep them from coming back later on in the year.
