Keep Your Lawn Green During a Drought

Is your lawn looking a little crispy after weeks of 90-degree temperatures and very little rain?

Across Michigan, the lack of significant rainfall has resulted in turfgrass stress, or dry lawns that are turning brown. 

According to the Michigan State University Department of Plant, Soil, and Microbial Sciences, “the vast majority of lawns in Michigan are primarily composed of Kentucky bluegrass.” Typically, this type of lawn doesn’t die unless it lacks water for six to eight weeks in combination with high temperatures. 

1) Don’t worry as much about controlling weeds. Just like the grass, many weeds are slowing down their growth and trying to control them now would be difficult.

2) During hot weather, heat tracks are common, caused from mowers and spreaders. Avoid mowing during the heat of the afternoon to prevent tracks.
