Boughter's Lawn Care Services. Fertilizing in New Castle, PA 16101 - 16105

Due to the upcoming hot weather, it is highly suggested that you begin watering your lawn. Regular fertilizer applications work best with deep and infrequent watering. Grub control applications require watering in to activate the product.

It is normal for grass to go dormant in very hot weather as we have a mixture of mostly cool season grasses in our Pennsylvania lawns. Kentucky bluegrass, rye and fine fescues will go dormant without watering.

Raising your mower deck helps a lot during hot weather. This help to shade the crown of the grass plant and allows for deeper rooting. I personally mow my lawn at 4 - 4.5” during the summer.

Seeding is not recommended at this time. It is best to wait for the summer temperatures to drop as fall approaches.

As always, do not bag your lawn clippings. Mulching or going over the lawn a second time to disperse the clippings is greatly beneficial.

Feel free to call, text or email if you have any questions or concerns.
