Water, water - when and where
This Midwest lawn has received no
supplemental watering in the last 32 years.
With proper fertilization and mowing it has
survived drought, traffic and winters.

Following watering basics will nurture the plants you’d hoped for while conserving an essential commodity. Monitor your plantings to determine how much supplemental water, if any, is needed.
Summer care for a healthy lawn
The best way to handle the occasional
dandelion or other weed that crops up
in the yard is to dig it out by the roots
or spot treat with a broadleaf weed killer.
A healthy lawn is a 24/7 filter for dirt, dust and impurities from the air. Like all plants it absorbs carbon dioxide and releases life giving-oxygen. These steps will assure your lawn has what it needs to provide those benefits this summer.
Spots on leaves signal disease
The spots before your eyes on your prize plants can be a concern. Proper diagnosis, and treatment, if necessary will give you peace of mind if steps are taken as warranted.
Smoothing out holes and dips in the yard
This hole caused by a mole’s run falling
in can be filled with a couple of hands
full of soil. With the lush growth of grass,
this area will be smoothed out and filled
in very quickly.
Have you noticed the mower taking a few bounces as you go over the lawn? Steps can be taken to smooth out your travels across the yard.
