Summer heat is just something you get accustomed to. We escape to the AC indoors, but your plants and lawns stay outside in the dry air.
Many lawns naturally go dormant and stop growing during these periods of high heat and drought. And believe it or not, the easiest thing to do is simply let it do what it does.
Nature takes its course, and when the temperatures return to normal the grass will get green again.
If waiting out the high temps isn’t an option, here are a couple tips to help your lawn retain its green color:
- provide 1″ of water slowly and steadily each week.
- water slowly at first to let the moisture soak in, then later on do a long and deep watering
- avoid cutting the lawn to prevent additional stress
