Lawn care can be a lot of work even in favorable conditions, so when drought strikes, maintaining a beautiful lawn slips from being a chore to a challenge many Utah home and business owners don’t know how to approach. Onyx Lawn & Pest Control does and is here to help with drought control options! We offer what no other lawn care company in Utah does: drought-proofing for drought control.
Utah’s desert climate poses a unique challenge to having attractive lawns. However, there’s no need to throw in the towel and resign yourself to brittle, brown patches. Onyx Lawn & Pest Control experts provide drought control services and drought-proofing solutions to help your lawn need less water while still maintaining its beauty.
Dealing With Drought
Drought during Utah’s summers is an unfortunate commonality many Utah home, and business owners struggle with. It’s also something the experts at Onyx Lawn & Pest Control are experienced in, providing drought control services to keep your lawns healthy, even in the heat of July. We can help you prepare your lawn for the heat with professional drought-proofing services and lawn care maintenance, and preventative techniques.
Some of the ways we help your lawn deal with drought include:
- Fertilization. When your plants are well-nourished, they’re better able to withstand dry conditions. Our drought-proofing is a standard part of our fertilization program and ensures your soil has the micronutrients your lawn needs to stay green.
- Weed control. Weeds will soak up water that’s meant for your lawn. Keeping them out will help your lawn stay hydrated. We include weed reduction and control as part of our fertilization services.
- Reducing soil compaction. Compacted soil can’t retain moisture, so your lawn can’t stay moist or healthy when drought hits. We provide liquid and plug aeration services that reduce soil compaction and help your lawn get the nutrients, air, and water it needs to flourish.
- Adjusting how you mow. Increasing mowing height, sharpening your mower’s blades, and decreasing mowing frequency encourage your lawn to grow when it’s under duress of drought. In addition to providing you with professional lawn care services, we can advise you on how to do this yourself, should you wish to.
Professional Drought-Proofing Services
We include drought-proofing as a standard part of our lawn care services, while most other companies only add it on when asked and for an extra expense. Drought-proofing is conditioning your soil with micronutrients so that it requires less water. This allows your lawn to grow strong and beautiful and to stay healthy even when water is more scarce.
When we come out to conduct your 6-step fertilization and weed control program, drought-proofing is included in that at no extra charge. In addition to our other drought control methods, drought-proofing helps your lawn withstand Utah’s desert climate without withering into dry, brittle, brown ugliness. Just because you cannot water your lawn as much doesn’t mean you need to tolerate it getting damaged or dying. Drought-proofing sets your lawn up for success to maintain its beauty and functionality.
