Caring for Your Lawn During a Drought

Caring for Your Lawn – Drought

Droughts can be a discouraging time of year for both you and your lawn. No one wants to see their careful work go down the drain due to circumstances that are out of their control. That being said, there are some things you can do to minimize the effects of a drought.

It’s not that easy being green

Is your grass having a hard time staying green? Don’t assume this means all life has been sucked out of your lawn by the drought monster. Simply water when you can within your local regulations, and use whatever “excess” water you can to water as well. Don’t water a lot and then stop altogether, though. Or vice versa, water very little and then soak your yard. This isn’t healthy for your grass or soil and does more harm than good. Try not to rely solely on automatic watering systems either. Also, remember that when you mow, raise the blades on the mower to keep as many of the nutrients in the soil as possible.
