Keep up with the summer mowing (and reduce the time spent on this task). Mowing the lawn in summer can seem like an exhausting task as temperatures start to rise. In some parts of the country, it's starting to get really hot as temperatures rise to 90 degrees. With one bottle of Maintain and two bottles of Recover, the Summer Fertilizer Box application program will provide nutrition to your lawn throughout the summer.
Maintain's 16-0-4 formula strengthens grass with potassium, amino acids and carbon. Recover's 13-0-0 formulation was created to provide the optimal balance of nutrients to lawns as temperatures begin to rise. In addition to nitrogen, Recover provides essential micronutrients such as soluble manganese, iron, sulfur and carbon, which help lawns withstand hot summer days. Despite the high temperatures that occur during the summer, lawns should only need about 1 inch of water per week, including rain.
This is best achieved with one or two irrigations per week. If you're not sure how to measure 1 inch of water, consider performing a simple irrigation audit. If your grass seems to get too hot or starts to accumulate burnt brown spots, consider adding a layer of dressing to keep it cool and shady.

With slow-release nitrogen, Foundation gradually feeds grass over an extended period of time without overloading it with nitrogen during the summer.
