Summer's officially here, and with it, comes the scorching heat.

Don't want that summer sun killing your curb appeal? Here's how to protect your yard:

  • Keep your grass long. This will shade the ground and keep your grass healthier.
  • Mulch your trimmings to help your lawn stay cooler.
  • Water before dawn or after dusk. This keeps the moisture from evaporating in the sun.
  • Plant a few trees to add extra shade.

You should also limit how much you walk on the lawn in the summertime. Walking on it can break the grass and cause damage - especially when the weather is warm and dry.
