Summertime Lawn Care with Turf Builder® SummerGuard® Lawn Food with Insect Control

You’re thriving this summer—your lawn should too.

So, you fed your lawn this spring—check! However, the feedings don't stop there. It is incredibly important to care for your lawn consistently throughout the year, especially in the summertime. Harsh summer elements such as heat and drought can make your lawn thin, brown, and weak, leaving it vulnerable to insect attacks. When you fertilize in the summer, you help your lawn stay thick and green and also strengthen it to combat summer stressors like heat and drought.

More Tips For Lawn Care Success

  • Regular feedings of Scotts® Turf Builder® will help grow a lawn you and your family can enjoy. Scotts® Turf Builder® provides the nutrients your lawn needs to look its best and withstand the stresses of heat, drought, and activity.
  • Mowing high allows the grass to develop a deep root system and helps your lawn use water more effectively. Leave the grass clippings on your lawn. This recycles the plant nutrients back into the soil.
  • Your lawn will begin to wilt when water is needed. Take advantage of nature's sprinkler and rely on the rain to water your lawn.
