July Gardening Tips

Water before the lawn turns brown - Once or twice per week, applying 1/2” each time is better than 3 or 5 times per week; 1/4” at a time.
Water early in the morning -  Watering at night can leave the lawn damp and susceptible to diseases.

Mow your lawn regularly with a sharp mower blade - A dull blade shreds instead of cutting and damages the grass plant.  Change your blades at least once per season.

Keep your mower height at 2 1/2 inches - Mowing at this height will help prevent weeds from germinating and allows your lawn to better tolerate drought.

Apply Randy’s Special or Greener by the Yard lawn fertilizer to feed the grass and keep your lawn green and healthy.
