Safeguarding Your Yard from the Blazing Summer Sun
By: Ricardo Tippitt
Summer’s officially here, and with it, comes the scorching heat.
Don’t want that summer sun killing your curb appeal? Here’s how to protect your yard:
- Keep your grass long. This will shade the ground and keep your grass healthier.
- Mulch your trimmings to help your lawn stay cooler.
- Water before dawn or after dusk. This keeps the moisture from evaporating in the sun.
- Plant a few trees to add extra shade.
You should also limit how much you walk on the lawn in the summertime. Walking on it can break the grass and cause damage – especially when the weather is warm and dry.
