The heat of the summer can be detrimental to most anyone who is out in it for any amount of time, but for your lawn, it is a constant battle. You probably notice the changes of the lawn during the summer, from the color to the freshness. The sun and heat are both to blame. But, you can maintain the beauty of your yard during the hot days of summer, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to do it.

Key Takeaways:

  • Reduce the amount of impermeable surfaces by using plants, porous pavement or other permeable surfaces for driveways, sidewalks and patios
  • Use rain gardens, bioretention cells, swales, vegetated filter strips, permeable surfaces, green roofs, underground tanks or rain barrels to conserve water wherever feasible.
  • Install underground tanks to collect rainwater from rooftops and hardscaping and use for watering later

“Water early in the day to prevent moisture loss and avoid disease problems.”
