Protect Your Lawn From Heat Damage

Your commercial property may be in good condition, but is it being brought down by heat stress? Without proper irrigation, treatment, and effective landscaping, your grass can turn into a brown mass that is unlikely to impress your tenants or clients. At Sunrise Landscape, we can diagnose the origin of your stressed lawn and quickly implement a plan to return it to its lush green condition.

The Signs of Heat Stress

The sun is the main culprit for scorching lawns, but it could be only part of the problem. Poor drainage and inconsistent watering can accelerate the browning of an already stressed lawn. Keep an eye out for the following indicators or heat stress:

  • Brown patches
  • Wilting
  • Inhibited growth
  • Discoloration

Brown patches may indicate that the heat is affecting your lawn, but invasive insects or fungal growth can also cause them. If you grab a patch of brown grass and it doesn’t pull away from the soil easily, the problem is likely caused by dry conditions.

Caring for a Stressed Lawn

Watering can significantly alter the health of your lawn, and the early morning hours are the ideal time to do so. The heat from the sun causes much of the water to evaporate, so watering during the cool early morning hours gives the soil more time to absorb the water.

While watering is crucial when preventing heat stress, you must be careful not to overwater. Overwatering can attract insects and lead to disease. Your lawn needs approximately an inch of water each week. Our team of experts at Sunrise Landscape will design an irrigation plan to ensure your lawn is getting the amount of water it needs.

When your lawn is browning, it’s best to avoid mowing and excessive foot traffic. Mower blades can damage sensitive, dry lawns, and walking on dry grass can compact it and accelerate the damage.

Return your commercial lawn to its original green beauty with help from the professionals at Sunrise Landscape.
