San Diego lawn care services

San Diego, CA lawn care

San Diego has its own style of Southern California living. Most of the city is conveniently close to the beach and thanks to its proximity to the ocean, San Diego doesn't suffer from wild temperature swings. In fact, the difference between the highs and lows throughout the year is usually less than 20 degrees. In the summer, you can expect the highs to rarely get above 80, and in the winter, the lows rarely make it under 50 degrees. With numbers like that, it's no wonder why this city by the sea is one of California's most popular places to live.

Although near the ocean, San Diego is considered semi-arid because it doesn't get a lot of precipitation. The average annual rainfall total is just 12 inches, while the US average is close to 40 inches. Most of this rain falls between the months of December and March.

With this limited rainfall and the drought-like conditions often found in California, choosing a grass that is drought-resistant is practically mandatory when planning your lawn. You'll want to go with a warm-season grass because, generally speaking, they require up to 20 percent less water than their cool-season counterparts. Some great options include tifway Bermuda grass, St. Augustine grass, Zoysia grass, and Buffalo grass.

San Diego grass types

Tifway is a hybrid Bermuda grass that can take a lot of heat. In fact, since it's from the tropics, it loves hot climates. San Diego isn't the hottest city in Southern California, tifway Bermuda grass does well there. It's also disease resistant and can weather a lot of foot traffic. Additionally, it doesn't need a lot of water. Although the winters aren't too cold in San Diego, tifway Bermuda grass will most likely go dormant in the winter. Overseeding it with a cool-season grass in the fall will help keep your lawn green.

St. Augustine grass is another popular choice for lawns throughout San Diego. It puts out a striking blue-green hue and grows quite quickly. One great feature about St. Augustine grass is its durability. It's practically impervious to foot traffic. As with Bermuda grass, St. Augustine loves the heat and usually goes dormant in the winter. Even though it loves warm weather, St. Augustine is shade tolerant and is a great choice for properties with abundant trees.

Buffalo grass, specifically UC Verde buffalo grass, is a fantastic option for areas that experience drought. It was developed by University of California researchers to be able to withstand dry conditions. Choosing UC Verde buffalo grass can result in you using up to 75 percent less water than with other types of grass. It produces a soft, fine carpet and requires little maintenance throughout the year.

Whichever type of grass you decide on, regular San Diego lawn care is necessary to keep your yard looking beautiful. This includes breaking out the lawn mower on a regular basis. In addition to mowing, San Diego fertilization is important for a healthy lawn. If you don't have the time to provide lawn care in San Diego, don't fret. You can still have that great lawn. Simply contact Lawn Love, and we'll take care of everything for you.

If vegetables are your thing, then you've got great options. For the spring through fall, peppers, summer squash, sweet corn, tomatoes, and beans are great options. Cantaloupes and watermelons also grow well during this time. If you plan on planting in the fall to have winter crops, then your options include beets, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, potatoes, and radishes.

Lots of different flowers also do well in San Diego. Some beautiful choices include bougainvilleas, daylilies, mercardonias, lantana, all of which don't need much water to produce bright colors for your yard.
