Summer Is Coming: How To Protect Your Buffalo Turf

Business Blog

Summer is coming. Now's the time to get your buffalo turf ready for the heat. Temperatures can climb during the summer in Australia. If you're not prepared, your buffalo turf can struggle to stay healthy. Luckily, buffalo turf is pretty low-maintenance. If you're not sure how to care for your turf this summer, read the information provided here. 

Strengthen the Root System

When it comes to maintaining a healthy lawn, you want to start with a healthy root system. You might think that you need to give your buffalo turf a lot of extra water during the summer months. But, that's not actually the case. In fact, watering your turf too much can damage the roots. That's because the extra water stops your roots from developing a resistance to heat. A healthy root system can retain more moisture. That's why you should try to water your turf a couple of times a week during the summer. If you see your turf wilting, add an extra water cycle during the week. 

Control the Weed Growth

If you want to keep your buffalo turf healthy this summer, be sure to control the weed growth. Weeds aren't only unsightly, they're also harmful. In fact, weeds can soak up the water that your turf needs for healthy growth. Also, as weeds spread, their roots can choke out your turf roofs. To protect your buffalo turf, eliminate weeds before they get a chance to take over. 

Check for Turf Damage

Now that summer is almost here, it's a good time to start tracking turf damage. If you see areas that are turning brown or that feel like straw, you'll need to take steps to repair the damage. One way to do that is to replace damaged turf. You can do that by cutting out the damaged portion and replacing it with healthy turf. If you're not sure how to do that, you can hire a lawn care service. 

Track Pest Activities

Pests can get pretty active during the summer. This is especially true with regard to your turf. Unfortunately, pest infestations can kill your turf. If you're not sure how to identify pest problems, watch the birds. If the birds seem attached to your turf, there's a good chance you have a pest problem. Now's the time to hire a lawn care service. They can eliminate the pest problem, and help your turf stay healthy this summer.

Pitching my business

I have a pretty successful local startup but I know that I could do even better if I expanded my business to a larger market. Unfortunately no matter how protiable a local small business is, no bank will lend me enough money for an international expansion. That's why I am preparing to pitch my business to equity investors and potential joint venture partners. Having a strong pitch will help maximise my chances of success. My blog has some of my work on improving my pitch and should be useful to anyone who is looking to pitch their business to investors.
