Summer, with its warm sunshine and longer days, is a time for enjoying your beautiful outdoor oasis. However, for your lawn, it can be the most challenging season. Dry conditions and soaring temperatures can cause stress to your grass, leaving it susceptible to damage and invasion by persistent weeds. At Abracadabra Lawn Pest & Weed Control, we’ve got you covered with our summer steps (3-6) of our specially designed eight-step program. We’ll keep your lawn looking its best, even in the height of summer.
The Importance of Nutrient Balance: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium
Throughout the summer, we administer four treatments of slow-release fertilizer, rich in nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (commonly referred to as NPK). These essential nutrients play a crucial role in the overall health and color of your lawn.
- Nitrogen is the primary nutrient responsible for the lush, green color and dense growth of your lawn. It promotes the production of chlorophyll, which is vital for photosynthesis.
- Phosphorus is key for energy transfer and storage in the plant, and it plays a significant role in promoting strong root development. This is particularly important in summer when your lawn needs to be robust to survive the harsh conditions.
- Potassium works to regulate water and nutrient movement in grass plants, improving drought resistance and overall hardiness.
By applying a slow-release fertilizer, we ensure your lawn gets a steady supply of these nutrients over a longer period, thereby promoting sustained, healthy growth.
Spotting and Spot Treating Weeds
Despite the best preventive measures, some weeds can still manage to pop up during the summer. Our program includes spot treatment for any visible weeds, preventing them from spreading and competing with your grass for nutrients and space. By promptly addressing these invaders, we can minimize their impact and help maintain the health and aesthetics of your lawn.
Promoting Healthy Roots
Summer is a tough time for your lawn, with the hot, dry conditions placing significant stress on grass plants. A healthy, deep root system is the key to a lawn that can withstand the summer heat. It allows the lawn to access water and nutrients from deeper in the soil, improving its resilience to drought and heat. The NPK fertilizer applied in our summer steps supports robust root development, helping to equip your lawn to better cope with the rigors of summer.
