Can you have green grass all year in Phoenix, AZ? Yes, as long as you understand how to deal with a desert climate that’s very different with winter and summer turf. That’s part of what makes landscaping maintenance and care in Phoenix, AZ so tricky.
Summer Lawn Care & Service: Phoenix, AZ & Surrounding Areas
Remember, landscape lawn service in Phoenix, AZ is different than most parts of the country. Rules of Landscaping 101 don’t necessarily apply here.
Bermuda grass can tolerate triple digit temperatures during the summer as long as it has sufficient water. It begins to go dormant during autumn and usually starts growing again in May, depending on the temperature, when high temperatures begin to kill winter rye grass. Two weeks without water in early May will accelerate the death of winter rye, which allows Bermuda summer grass to come in more quickly.
Bermuda grass spreads, which is great for developing a lush, thick lawn and filling in damaged areas, but it’s not so great if it moves into flower beds or other parts of your property where it’s not supposed to grow. Before you transition to summer turf at your home or commercial property, consider these questions:
- What type of Bermuda grass is right for my property?
- How much do I need to water my lawn?
- How much fertilizer do I need?
- How do I keep my summer turf out of my flower beds?
- How can I prevent pests from damaging my landscape?
