For those of us living in the middle parts of the country, the heat dome is settling in for the long haul. While there is not much rain in the forecast, triple digit temperatures definitely are. Commercial Landscaping is vital to keep lawns, trees, flowers and shrubs from dying and looking their best during the extreme heat of the summer. Pugh’s Earthworks is the Commercial Landscaping Company to contract with. They are experts in all facets of Commercial Landscaping and will know what steps to take to protect your Commercial Property from the extreme summer heat.
Pugh’s Earthworks can install an automatic sprinkler system if you do not have one. That is one of our services and we are very experienced with installation and maintenance. An automatic sprinkler system helps ensure that your lawn receives the right amount of water at the right time.
Keeping the soil moist is good but deep watering is more important that frequent short waterings. Grass needs at least an inch of water weekly. However, you do not need to water every day. It is actually infrequent watering that encourages deep root growth. Water must get below the root zone to help nourish the roots so they can learn to grow deeper in search of moisture and nutrients.
Having a lawn with deep roots helps protect it when it gets so hot during those summer months. It is those deep roots that hold the water and keep the grass cooler so that it will not die out from the excessive heat. Here are some additional lawn maintenance tips to promote those deep roots for your lawn.
Start with cultivating the topsoil. Sandy loam or well-drained loam gives roots the ability to stretch out and grow. If you have sandy soil, know that it does not retain water very well. That is when you will need to add organic matter, which delivers the necessary nutrients and increases water retention.
Mow frequently and keep grass at the right height for the type of grass you have. For example, grass with large crowns or clumps, which is typically Kentucky bluegrass or tall fescue, should be mowed at a much taller height. In contrast, zoysia grass should have a shorter mowing. Whatever kind of grass you have, be sure to mow no more than one-third of the blade lengths at a time. This stimulates growth and protects the roots.
Fertilize at the end of the growing season to achieve strong root growth. Slow-release fertilizers are often touted as the best for promoting the growth of the grass roots.
AgriGro bio stimulants have also been proven to increase root growth. This is because these substances help plants endure environmental stress better than those that were not treated.
You can also encourage strong roots by giving them plenty of room to grow. This means pulling any weeds, which have root systems that like to choke the roots of the grass.
Plus, it involves periodic aeration, which allows air and water to reach the roots. Use a core aerator, which will reduce soil compaction. That way, the water can penetrate all the way down to the roots
The Pugh’s Earthworks technicians will be sure to also remove what is known as thatch by using a rake to clear this dead organic material and grass clippings from the soil.
From following these proven steps, Pugh’s Earthworks has a proven track record of providing our Commercial Clients with the enjoyment and pride of a lush green lawn throughout the summer.
