- Fertilize: The first of three rounds of fertilizing your lawn should be done at the beginning of summer. It’s important to only feed your lawn when it’s actively growing, never during a drought.
- Mowing: Be sure to only cut off one third of the grass’ length at a time and to cut it no shorter than three inches tall. Cutting grass too short leaves it vulnerable to insect invasion and disease. You can do this by mowing at the highest blade setting to prevent grass blades from shredding
- Water: If it’s not restricted, be sure to water your grass regularly and in the morning hours, when it’s most efficient.
