It looks like the expected precipitation in Tampa is 0.02 inches, which means you will probably have to water your lawn today.

Dusk and dawn are the best times to water your lawn (the sun will rise at 6:48 AM and set at 8:23 PM today in Tampa).

Tampa lawn care services

Tampa lawn care

In the Tampa Bay area, we're fortunate enough to have good weather all year-round, which means we can maximize the time we spend outdoors! However terrific weather will make your lawn grow rather quickly.

A soil test can be performed on your lawn to give you the necessary feedback you need to grow healthy grass. Home test kits are available for purchase and can be sent off to your local County Extension Service for testing.

Aeration is an important step to growing the best lawn possible. Aerating your lawn will allow the roots of your grass to soak in much-needed nutrients along with water and sunlight. A Tampa lawn service professional can provide this service when you need it.

When you mow your lawn you need to choose whether to mulch or get rid of the clippings. Many Tampa homeowners choose to leave clippings as a natural mulch, but you may also wish to bag them and haul them away. There are benefits to both. Mulch is used to retain moisture in the soil, suppress weeds, keep the soil cool, and help create an attractive looking lawn. However, grass clippings decompose very rapidly, and in the process, they can become slimy and sometimes have an unpleasant odor. Too much mulching of grass clippings can also mat down and not allow water to pass through.

Living in Tampa means hot days throughout the year. You'll always want to water the grass early in the morning, preferably before the sun rises. If you miss this window, wait until the sun begins to set before watering your lawn. If you mow too late in the day, the cooler temperatures can allow fungus to grow as the remaining water will not evaporate all the way. Also, the earlier you water, the more time your grass has to absorb the moisture, which will then keep the turf cooler throughout the remaining hot parts of the day. The golden rule is to water deeply and less frequently.

Pay attention to bugs! Unfortunately, the city of Tampa deals with a number of pests that can attack your lawn and kill your grass. Chinch bugs, mole crickets, armyworms, and other bugs can do damage to your lawn, so keep an eye out for them and know what to do if they invade your space.

Tampa grass types

If you live in the Tampa area, then your grass is probably St. Augustine, Zoysia, or Bahia. Knowing what type of grass is growing in your yard will provide you with the ability of how to best care for it and make it healthy and happy.

Most grasses native to Tampa are warm-season grasses that go dormant in the winter. According to the experts, planting grass between the months of April and July will help your lawn look its best. Whether you are a pro or a beginner when it comes to lawn care, read on for the best grass types to try.

Zoysia, a warm-season grass, is always a popular choice for lawns in Tampa. Once Zoysia has become established it creates a hardy, colorful lawn. Zoysia will grow best in full sun but will also tolerate light shade and colder temperatures in the winter. It's a great choice for busy homeowners who may not have time for lawn care as it has low water requirements. If your goal is to enjoy your lawn with family and friends, Zoysia will also hold up well under heavy foot traffic.

St. Augustine is another grass that will do very well in the hotter Tampa climate. It produces a thick sod of deep green blades, crowding out other grasses and any weeds that try to push through. However, it's not a great grass for lawns that see a lot of foot traffic. It also needs regular watering and may need additional irrigation if the city sees drought conditions.

Dwarf St. Augustine grass is another type of grass that can thrive in Tampa. However, this grass type should be mowed to two and a half inches instead of the standard three and a half to four inch mowing height of standard St. Augustine. It will also have a finer texture than regular St. Augustine grass.

Bahia grass is a warm-season grass that does well in full sun and is perfect for gulf coast lawns. It can withstand drought and has a high tolerance for heat. Bahia grass grows into a low-maintenance turf that requires less water and nutrients than its counterparts. Its deep root system allows it to withstand drought conditions, a common concern in Tampa.

Hiring a professional Tampa lawn care service

This is due to the fact that many homeowners don't have the time, knowledge, or passion to properly care for their lawns and gardens. They may be busy with work, family, errands, school, or anything else to keep them from giving their lawn the proper attention it needs.
