Chinch Bug Damage

Shawn Karn, The Grass Expert

Summer heat is in full effect and lawns are now showing signs of browning out. Be aware, this could be more than just drought.

Must-Have Lawn Care Tools For New Homeowners

Robert Bourne, Nutri-Lawn Vancouver

Buying a new house is a very exciting time. You’ve already painted, maybe bought some new curtains and furniture. Now it’s time to look outside. What do you need to get your lawn in top shape? If the lawn is in great shape, all you’ll need to do is maintain it. Take heart if the lawn is not the home’s best feature. Grass is very forgiving and often you can totally transform a yard with lush turf in just a season.

In the fall, take the time fertilize and overseed your lawn. In the spring you can dethatch and aerate as needed, and if you haven’t already overseed and fertilize for the season. July and August are often hot and deliver less rain so your lawn should be fairly easy to maintain because it won’t grow that much.

Keep Your Lawn Green With Summer Fertilizer

Robert Bourne, Nutri-Lawn Vancouver

Are you a homeowner who fastidiously cares for your lawn? You’re sure to overseed when necessary, you aerate and dethatch, use grub control and have purged your lawn of weeds and other invaders. If this is you, and the idea of seeing all that hard work turn brown and yellow in the dog days of 30+ Degree weather in July and August, you might consider applying summer fertilizer. We don’t recommend this for every homeowner because applied incorrectly summer fertilizer can cause significant damage to your lawn.

Keeping your lawn green can be a struggle in July and August without some intervention. Smart watering practices, weed control and other measures will help. For that additional boost, summer fertilizer might be just what you need.
