Treating Heat Stress
on YOUR Lawn
BEST TIME TO WATER THE LAWN
-Confirm there is not another problem like grubs or chinch bugs (they eat roots of grass tuning lawn brown)
-Water deeply and infrequently (2-3 times per week 20-25 mins per zone)
-Refrain from mowing lawn to low.
-Keep mower blades sharp like a knife.
-Avoid compacting soil further. (No heavy machines on lawn during heat spell or drought)
-Allow lawn to go dormant if long periods of severe heat are forecasted.
-Consider over seeding in early spring to establish thick roots mass.
