We are in a very bad drought now!
Nothing said about this in the news- all we hear is that it’s “beautiful weather.” ITS NOT. Plants and grasses are dying across the state. Don’t wait to water- sometimes it’s too late to save plants by the time you notice .
No rain of significance in the past few weeks. Nothing coming for the foreseeable future. Full sun and hot wind dry everything out and starts killing little by little.
Thin soil under turf shows stress first. Grass turns dark green then yellowish then broomstick brown. As it nears death, it becomes apparent that there’s absolutely nada that one can do about it.
Planting trees to shade the lawn isn’t a bad idea for so many reasons.
Lawns that are less than a year old do this during droughts- you gotta do it all over again.
