How’s everyone doing this warm July day? I don’t know about you but I LOVE this hot weather. I’d take the 90 degree temperatures over the cold and snow any day. Even though it is super hot out, you can still get various chores done around the yard or in the garden in the morning and evening hours at least. When it’s snowing, you’re stuck watching the snow pile up from your window.
Well getting back to talking about how hot it has been, is anyone else’s grass or lawn on life support? It’s lovely green color is long gone and replaced with a dull brown from a combination of factors ranging from it never raining and the record high temperatures we’ve been experiencing for almost weeks now. I’m afraid to water because we are on a drought watch. The last thing I want is to get into trouble for watering my grass. I love my yard but not enough to pay a fine.
I’ve been trying to come up with ways to breathe some life into the yard. During my research, I came across a few helpful articles on eliminating brown patch. I think a few of the list tricks may work, such as over-fertilizing your grass and mowing too low. Speaking of mowing, I couldn’t tell you the last time I even started my lawnmower. I’m afraid that if I cut my grass, the grass will become worse. They say grass cut too short is often susceptible to disease, fungus and drought.
So let’s hear some tips and tricks. How do you manage to keep your grass alive and healthy during times like these? I’d love to know and so would my lawn!
