It is essential in the heat of the summer to take extra precaution when mowing your yard. Experts caution against removing more than the top third of the grass blade. A taller lawn will not only blossom better than a shorter lawn, but it also will cut down on the number of weeds. Taller grass also shades the soil, which means the roots won’t dry out as fast. This month we’ll focus on shrubs, and keeping insects and disease to non-harmful levels by adding micronutrients in order to help them handle summer stress.
