Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in Katy
Katy is brutally hot, especially in the summer. Your lawn will have to adapt to high temperatures with a little TLC. However, LawnStarter’s pros beat the heat and help make your lawn happy and healthy.
The Most Common Grass Types in Katy: Katy’s most common grasses are bermudagrass, centipedegrass, buffalograss, zoysiagrass, and perennial ryegrass.
Summer Lawn Care Tips for Katy: Water your lawn early in the morning before the temperature gets too hot. Try to give your water at most an inch of water a week or half an inch twice a week. Keep your grass taller during summer, but don’t let it grow too long - make sure the grass has as least ⅔ of its blade after mowing. Fertilize your lawn, but purchase a fertilizer that works with Katy’s climate. Aerate and loosen your soil to let dirt retain its moisture. Always look for pests, as insects lay their eggs early in the summer.
Fall Lawn Care Tips for Katy: Water your lawn 1-2 inches weekly. Snow is rare in Katy, so you must water your lawn throughout the fall and winter. Remove leaves on your lawn and put them in your compost bin or chop them up with a mulching mower. Aerate your lawn to give the soil room to breathe. Overseeding where the grass is thin or bare patches of earth occur will help it withstand any diseases and weeds that come up during the fall and winter. Treat brown patches with a baking soda spray.
Common Lawn Pests: Katy's most common lawn pests are aphids, chinch bugs, sod webworms, and grubs.
Common Lawn Diseases: Several lawn diseases in Katy include black spot, powdery mildew, brown patch, and take-all patch.
