NC Lawn Care Specialist Reveals Top 3 Tips to Protect Your Lawn from the Heatwave

Bertie County, N.C, United States, 22nd Jun 2024-  Randy Tayloe, a certified lawn care expert and operator of Tayloe’s Lawn Care Services, LLC, in Aulander, NC, is offering essential advice for homeowners to maintain their lawns during the summer heat wave. With extensive education and certification from the NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Randy applies his knowledge to help clients achieve lush, healthy lawns even under extreme temperatures.

The summer heat wave poses significant challenges for lawns across North Carolina. To combat this, Randy Tayloe shares three professional secrets to ensure your lawn remains healthy and resilient during the hottest months.

Proper Watering Techniques

Watering your lawn correctly is crucial during a heat wave. Randy emphasizes the importance of deep and infrequent watering to encourage deep root growth, which helps the grass excess moisture from deeper soil layers during heat stress. Watering early in the morning reduces evaporation losses and ensures the grass is hydrated before the day’s heat sets in. It’s also vital to avoid overwatering, which can lead to shallow roots and make the grass more susceptible to heat stress. Proper soil drainage is essential to prevent waterlogging and keep the lawn healthy.

Mowing Practices

Adjusting mowing practices during hot weather can significantly impact lawn health. Randy advises raising mower blades to keep the grass taller, provide shade to the soil, reduce evaporation, and keep the roots cooler. Ensuring mower blades are sharp is essential for making clean cuts, which reduces stress on the grass. Additionally, avoiding cutting more than one-third of the grass blade length at one time prevents shock and vulnerability to heat stress.

Avoid Fertilizing Services in the Peak Summer Heat

Timing is critical when it comes to fertilizing lawns. Randy recommends avoiding fertilizer applications during the peak heat of summer. The best times to fertilize are during the cooler periods of spring and fall when the grass can better utilize the nutrients without added stress. Fertilizing during extreme heat can harm the lawn and should be avoided to maintain its health and resilience.

“By following these professional secrets, homeowners can help their lawns remain resilient and healthy throughout the summer heat wave,” said Randy Tayloe. “Proper care and maintenance are key to protecting your lawn from heat stress and keeping your turfgrass looking its best.”
