Depending on the growth of the plants, you should mow the lawn once or twice aweek. Mow less during dry periods and don’t mow the grass too short. When it’s hot outside, it’s best to mow during the evenings, to prevent dehydration due to excessive evaporation. That’s because fresh lacerations, caused by the mowing, evaporate much more. Scatter fertilizer on the lawn if rain is predicted and repeat after amonth.This will keep your lawn healthy! Check the lawn for diseased patches.
When nice weather continues for a while, water your lawn, flower beds and other plants continuously for several hours instead of repeated short periods of 15 minutes. Always water in the mornings. At night, water does not soak up as well as in the mornings which can cause mold. If necessary, you create a new straighted geto your lawn or flower beds, which is the finishing touch for your lawn.
