Your Thirsty Lawn Keeping Your Lawn and Landscape Green All Summer Hot enough for you? With temperatures in the 80s and 90s, Iowa summers can be sweltering, and this summer is no exception. While it’s normal for your turf grass to go into dormancy during this time, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice a great-looking lawn and landscape! Keep your lawn ready for a summer cookout all season with these lawn care tips. Lawn Health Care in Summer Some of our friends have asked us whether they should stop their fertilization and weed control applications if the grass isn’t growing. On the contrary, since our fertilizers are slow-release, water-activated granules rather than a spray, your lawn will get the feeding it needs with the morning dew and summer storms, without the risk of burning. We also adjust the amount of fertilizer we put down. This will help your lawn rebound at the end of the season when temperatures cool down. Also, weeds take advantage of stressed lawns; leaving off your applications now might mean sacrificing your weed-free lawn or losing ground to tenacious weeds. Our technicians spot-spray in these conditions, meaning we target your weeds where they are. When Should I Water? A period of dormancy during the hottest part of the summer is normal and natural for your grass — however, more than a month with scant rainfall means the ground around the grass roots is drying out and may result in some die-off. During very dry periods, water your lawn to about half an inch twice a week. However, don’t waste your water! If you water between 4 and 9 am, you won’t lose it to evaporation under the sun or create a breeding ground for fungus. I Have an Irrigation System… Excellent! Set your timer for that early morning time. There are rain-detector devices available for irrigation systems so your system will recognize and not turn on after a storm, or if your lawn has sufficient moisture. Did you know we offer irrigation maintenance and repair? What About My Flowers, Trees and Shrubs? Mulch! If you didn’t take advantage of mulch for your landscaping in the spring, it’s not too late. Mulch helps protect your plants from the dry conditions by creating a moisture-retaining buffer, and slowly breaking down to enrich the soil. It’s also a good idea to mimic the conditions of the average rainfall, same as for your lawn — a half inch once or twice a week. A good way to test the amount of water reaching your plantings is to place an inexpensive rain gauge in the area and stop at the half-inch mark. Also, keep an eye out! Make sure all your plants are receiving that water. For trees, try placing a hose on the ‘upstream’ side of your trees and set to trickle for a few hours. This slow, deep and heavy watering, once a week, should help protect your trees from stress. We Can Help! We can supply mulch for your landscaping and we can start up, maintain and repair your irrigation system. Should a severe drought set in, we’ve done it before and we can do it again: our watering trucks are ready and waiting to protect your lawn from die-off. We’re happy to answer any questions that you have!

Why We Are Different Quality Lawn Services is unique from other lawn care companies in many ways. It all starts with our comprehensive soil analysis. Some of our competitors make this claim but when discussing the soil analysis process with our potential customers they remember their vendor talking about the soil analysis but never receiving any results or having any follow up. With our service, you receive a detailed report with our recommendations of a customized program that will result in a lawn that people can only dream about. Most of our competitors don’t have the technology to perform such service, therefore, they treat all lawns with the same fertilizer when in all actuality your lawn may require specific fertilizer blends for best results. Quality Lawn Services fertilizers are blended with advanced technology that utilizes better ingredients that have less potential for run off and less potential for environmental problems. Quality Lawn Services fertilizers last longer for better results and we use zero based phosphorous around waterways and in areas that warrant its use. Last but not least, Quality Lawn Services utilizes control products for weeds, insect and grub control that are ‘Caution Label’ the least toxic on the market. Most of our competitors use danger label products which traditionally are less expensive but not very friendly to you, your pets, your lawn and the environment. Quality Lawn Services application process is thorough, you will know we are on your property as we always knock on the door to notify you that we are starting the application, inquire if you have any questions about today’s application, won’t use equipment that will damage your yard and will provide you with a detailed explanation of what we found in your lawn such as insect or grub damage or a problem weed and how we corrected it.
