A little rain goes....

Posted by Joseph E Woodson on May 31, 2011 at 6:08 PM

A little way. We had between 1 - 2" of rainfall this weekend areawide. This is great for the short-term, but keep watering your lawn on a regular basis. Too much at one time can be as hamful as too little, the lawn gets confused and responds by yellowing and either growing too fast for a short time or shutting down growth. The past three years have been as inconsistant for the growth of lawns I have ever seen in my 38 years of lawn control. There is no easy answer or solution. Don't give up on your lawn, this will pass eventually and your lawn will respond favorably.
