How to Handle Summer Lawn Stress

Summer hasn't officially arrived in Ottawa just yet, but don't you worry – the hot and humid afternoon's will be here soon enough. Is your lawn ready to deal with the stress of summer weather? Excessive heat and lack of rain calls for regular watering from your inground sprinkler system, while unexpected thunderstorms can create disease conditions due to excessive moisture. Balancing Mother Nature's mid-June mood swings can be frustrating, but don't throw in the towel just yet. Ensure your Ottawa lawn is ready for another summer scorcher with professional lawn care maintenance from the experts at Nutri-Lawn.

How Your Grass Naturally Copes With Heat
Did you know that your lawn goes semidormant during periods of extreme heat and drought? During the summer, grass utilizes energy that's stored in its root system in order to sustain life and survive sweltering days. Unfortunately, the more energy the plant draws from the roots, the weaker they become, making the plant more susceptible to disease and insect damage. The best way to protect your lawn from the effects of summer stress is to ensure it's properly fed and maintained during the spring growing season. Proper fertility and a higher mower cut setting will help promote the growth of an extensive root system, as well as improve your lawn's ability to combat pests and problems.
