Brown Grass: Dormant not Dead

Customers are often asking us what to do about their lawn once it turns brown.  Well, when a lawn turns brown it does not mean the grass has died it just means it has “gone to sleep” until it rains again.

Tips for the Dormant Period:

-Try to keep the grass about 2-3 inches high when the grass begins to turn brown due to lack of rain.

-Don’t be too concerned about watering the lawn because it will turn green again with rain (and it’s a good way to conserve water!)

-Even though brown grass is not the most attractive, remember that it will soon return to that lovely green color.
