August in Texas

Its that time of year again when Texas feels like the surface of the sun. This year has been a bit different than usual in that we have had considerably more rain and in turn a lot more humidity. While that has led most of us to feel a lot more uncomfortable the upside is that the grass has been much less stressed than usual. 

 

What you can expect to see

  • Grass growth has slowed

  • Grass turns brown after mowing and stays that way for several days

  • Increased insect activity

How your care should change

 

  • We switch from granular fertilizer to liquid fertilizer as it is less stressful on the grass

  • We recommend raising the height your grass is mowed to cause less stress 

  • We treat the areas of the lawn that are heavily shaded more aggressively as the insects use these spaces to get out of the heat
