What Summer Storms And Hurricanes Mean For Your Lawn
Spending the summer in Florida is quite a unique experience, especially if you are not originally from the area. Florida is known for the high temperatures, especially during the summer months. It can be very difficult for grass, landscaping, and vegetation to survive during this time. Although we have very heavy rainfall during these months, this type of rain does more harm than good to your property.
Problems With Summer Storms
The rain that we typically receive during this time of year comes down heavy and fast. If you were to look at the overall inches of rain we receive during the summer months, it may seem like it rains a lot. In terms of the water that is absorbed into the lawn and vegetation, it really is not that much at all. Since the outside temperature is so high, rainwater evaporates before it can absorb into the ground. This can cause the lawn, landscaping, and vegetation to actually die out instead of thrive. The same is true for hurricanes. It is impossible for your lawn to absorb the amount of water needed for it to be beneficial.
Install an Irrigation System
One of the best ways to help your lawn, landscaping, and vegetation thrive during the summer is with an irrigation system. This watering method allows you to control when your property receives water. You can adjust the watering times and frequency easily. This is extremely helpful when our area is experiencing considerable amounts of rain or no rain at all. Aside from using an irrigation system, the best way to keep your property thriving is to be sure to cut your lawn regularly, keeping the grass short. Be sure to trim shrubs as well.
