Elements Lawn and Landscaping, your trusted local experts, are here to equip you with invaluable tips to ensure your lawn not only survives but thrives amidst the relentless Texas heat.

Beat the Heat with Proper Watering:

In Austin’s arid climate, watering your lawn efficiently is paramount to its survival. Ensure deep watering sessions early in the morning to minimize water loss through evaporation, and invest in a programmable irrigation system to maintain consistent moisture levels, as recommended by Elements Lawn and Landscaping.

Choose Drought-Tolerant Grass Varieties:

Opt for resilient grass species such as Bermuda grass or Zoysia grass that are well-adapted to Austin’s hot and dry summers. Elements Lawn and Landscaping can assist you in selecting the most suitable grass type for your lawn, ensuring minimal water consumption and maximum resilience.

Implement Proper Mowing Practices:

Maintain the ideal mowing height to promote a healthy root system and shade the soil, reducing moisture loss. Elements Lawn and Landscaping suggests adjusting your mower blades to leave grass blades around 2 to 3 inches tall, preventing stress and promoting lush growth even in the sweltering Texas heat.

Aerate and Fertilize Regularly:

Combat soil compaction and enhance nutrient absorption by scheduling regular aeration services with Elements Lawn and Landscaping. Additionally, opt for slow-release fertilizers to provide essential nutrients gradually, supporting your lawn’s resilience and vitality throughout the summer months.

Protect Against Pests and Weeds:

Summer heat can exacerbate pest and weed infestations, threatening the health of your lawn.
