The hot summer months are a stressful time for your lawn, especially if your lawn is just beginning to grow from seed. The following tips can help your lawn adjust and thrive in the summer heat.

Keep your lawn a little taller than usual. The taller your lawn is allowed to grow, the better your lawn can keep the little water that it has available. A slightly longer lawn will allow a little more shading of the soil, which allows a little more water to remain in the soil when compared to a shorter lawn.

Hold off on the fertilizer. Most lawn fertilizers contain nitrogen, which has the ability to burn your lawn even under the best of conditions. As the hot summer temperatures take their toll on your lawn, adding fertilizer can be a hindrance instead of a help. If you really need fertilizer in the summer, consider a slow-release fertilizer to reduce the amount of nitrogen that is reaching your lawn.

Water your lawn in the morning or the evening. Any water that is applied to your lawn is only useful if the water reaches the roots of the lawn. So watering during the cooler parts of the day, like mornings or evenings, will allow more water to soak into the soil instead of being evaporated away by the hot sun.
