Tips to Maintain Healthy Lawn in Summer in Boxford MA

Summer is one of the most enjoyable seasons to stay outdoors. And what better spot than your garden to organize barbeques, spend time reading your favorite book, conduct bird watching and perhaps even hold weddings? But all these and more can be possible only when you have a healthy lawn.

Try some of these essential tips to achieve the lawn of your dreams in Boxford MA this summer. Note that a landscape company Beverly MA can best carry out the work of managing your lawn whether it is mowing or dealing with drought stress.

How to Mow Your Lawn in Summer?

Allow your lawn grass to grow a bit taller as it will grow deeper roots and make your lawn look fuller. Another advantage of taller grass is, the blades will provide more shade for your soil and check germination of new weeds.

Though the optimum grass height on your lawn will depend on many factors such as grass type, following 1/3 rule to grow your grasses is recommended before you mow them. It means you will have to grow your turf 1/3 of an inch longer than its optimum height. If you are not sure about the optimum height of your grass, a  lawn service Beverly MA can examine it for you.

How to Water Your Lawn in Summer?

It is essential to water your lawn thoroughly as the heat begins to rise up. You can water before the sun reaches its highest point in order to reduce the amount of water lost during evaporation. Watering in the morning also allows your lawn sufficient time to absorb the moisture before dark.

Since your watering schedule will depend on the region and weather, you need a landscape company Boxford MA to determine exactly how much water is needed by your grass. However, generally, when the weather is hot and dry, you can provide your grass around 1 to 2-inches of water weekly.

Is Drought Stress A Serious Issue?

Yes, drought stress results in excessive dryness of your lawn that prevents your grass from growing. It can even end up harming the blade’s cellular structure causing permanent damage to your lawn. If your lawn is undergoing drought stress, you will notice changes in hue, your grass will feel and sound crunchy under your feet, and your grass will start to wilt.

Dear Corliss Customers,

Over the past two weeks Corliss made the decision to suspend all construction activities to follow Governor Baker's  “Stay at Home."  Since that time, we have carefully reviewed the details of the order and have had several discussions as a management team and with our employees. With that being said, we have determined that our field operations are EXEMPT from the Governor’s order.  Therefore, we have made the decision to return to work.

  We have spent a considerable amount of time contemplating the most appropriate decision with regards to resuming operations.  We do not take this decision lightly as we have the utmost respect for our employees, customers, and the general public’s well being.  Through careful consideration we have determined that with proper preparations, policies and the endorsement of the government, we can effectively carry out our work.  We are not requiring employees to return to work.  If any of our employees do not feel comfortable working under the current circumstances, we respect their decision and their future work with us will not be in jeopardy.

As for our office, the office will remain closed to the public until the “Stay at Home” order has been lifted. During this time, we will continue to use our technological resources to work remotely.  Our remote office hours will be from 9 am to 5 pm.  If you have any questions please feel free to reach out via email at or via phone at (978) 356-4224.  Please note that phone calls may experience a backlog, so please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible.

We also understand that you, our valued customers, may not feel comfortable with us being on your property at this time.  We understand and respect that feeling and will do whatever it takes to work out an appropriate time for us to resume working at your property once you feel it is safe to do so.  For those of you who are comfortable with us completing work on your property at this time, rest assured that we will be following the protocols.  One employee per vehicle, cleansing products in all vehicles, gloves and masks when needed, as well as the 6 foot social distance spacing.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.  We can be reached at (978)356-4224 or at 

            We have included the link to the Massachusetts website where we found the supporting documentation to help in our determination.  Specifically, in two places one under “Public Works” and two under “General Questions – Essential Services Related” sixth bullet point.

  Thank you for your continued support during these times!
