Went to see a lawn care customer this week in Stoney Creek about some issues

The thing that was an eye-opener is how much of a difference that watering can make to a lawn when we have been having temperatures of 30 degrees C and there has been little rain.

Yes, grasses have the ability to withstand dry conditions, if they are not watered during droughts, they will go dormant and lose their green colour. But as long as they get some moisture, they will survive. Once fall comes with its cooler temperatures, shorted days, and more moisture the lawn will recover and turn green again.

But what if you don't want your lawn to go dormant? 

Here is a lawn where you can see the difference that watering makes. The sprinkler is set on the porch in one spot. The majority of the lawn has been watered, but the edges did not get enough to keep them green. The pattern of the green is typical of the spray pattern of an oscillating sprinkler. 

Watering Makes a Difference in Lawn Care

The lighter green spots in the middle of the lawn are patches of crabgrass.  Even crabgrass didn't fare as well in the areas with less water.
