Hot & Dry Grass

Dry, dead looking grass is everywhere!

This past winter has waged a vicious war on our lawns and landscapes. The dry weather, combined with unusually high temperatures and watering restrictions, have given our lawns a poor start to the summer season. Many lawns, like the one pictured above, are beyond immediate rescue provided by basic watering.

Also, the beginning of Summer starts today, (in combination with an unusually hot Spring) and Colorado temperatures continue to break records.

What Do I Do Now?
·    Be Patient - your lawn will bounce back, but it's going to take some time and dedication
·    Water Normally - Continue your normal watering schedule, taking into account rain fall and heat waves
·    Mow your lawn - Raise your mower to 3" tall and continue to mow normally. The added height will reduce the amount of stress placed on the grass and allow for healthier growth in the future
