By following these five simple tips, you can help your grass stay healthy and looking its best all season long.

1. Mow your grass regularly and at the proper height. This will help ensure that your grass is able to withstand the heat and prevent it from drying out.

How often should you mow your grass? It depends on the type of grass and your personal preferences.

For most types of grass, you'll need to mow every week or two. And if you prefer a shorter lawn, you'll need to mow more often than if you like a longer one.

2. Water your grass deeply and less frequently. 

Watering is one of the most important things you can do for your lawn. But it's important to water deeply and less frequently, rather than shallowly and more often.

Deep watering encourages deeper root growth, which helps your grass better withstand drought conditions. It's also less likely to lead to fungal diseases, which are a common problem.

3. Apply a thick layer of mulch to your grass. This will help protect the roots from the heat and prevent evaporation.

Mulch is also great for preventing weeds, which can compete with your grass for water and nutrients.

4. Avoid using herbicides or pesticides on your grass. These chemicals can actually damage the grass and make it more susceptible to disease.

Chemicals are also bad for the environment and can harm animals and humans if they're not used properly.

5. Keep an eye on your grass for signs of stress, such as wilting or discolouration. If you notice any of these symptoms, be sure to take action immediately to help your grass recover. Taking action too late may result in the death of your grass. 

By following these simple tips, you can help your grass stay healthy and look its best ready for summer. So don't wait until the last minute to prepare - start taking care of your grass now and enjoy a beautiful lawn whole season!
