How to Beautify Your Lawn this Summer
The hottest days can make or break your green grass this summer. If you find that your lawn is prone to having footprints fade after a full hour after they have been formed or has a blue-ish gray color, these could be red flags that your lawn is in craving for a makeover. So here are some ways you can improve your landscaping this summer, and turn it into the hot spot for your family, friends, and neighbors.
Add More Color
You can buy some flowers in vibrant reds, blues, and yellows to spruce up your lawn. Asters, Coreopsis, Cosmos, Hyacinth Bean, Johnny Jump-Ups, Marigolds, Morning Glories, Nasturtiums, Phlox, Rudbeckia, Tithonia, Sunflowers, and many others will beautify your lawn.
Build a Walkway
Front walkways can improve your landscaping, and add a touch of personality to your lawn. This landscaping feature will protect your grass during the dry summer months. Stepping on your entire lawn can lead to the already brittle grass breaking.
Stepping stones, a natural stone walkway or a paver walkway can preserve the integrity of the grass and leave you with a spotless yard.
Integrate a Water Feature
Installing a water feature creates a perfect focal point for your back or front yard. You can build a small, or a big pond with calming waterfalls.
Keep the Grass in Top-Notch Condition
All you need to do to help your lawn thrive through the hottest days of the year is to follow proper maintenance practices:
- Clear debris before mowing
- Never mow wet grass
- Don’t cut the grass too short
- Water it between the hours of 6: 00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m
