Home Grown: Lawn Care During Drought

Excessive heat and dry conditions can leave lawns wilted and browning. Watering improperly during drought can result in a less-than-healthy lawn.

The way you manage your lawn will influence the amount of water required to keep it healthy. Increased nitrogen fertilization and thatch build up increase the amount and frequency of irrigation needed.

During dry periods, raise the mowing height and mow with a frequency in which no more than a third of the leaf tissue is removed. Raising the mowing height will allow the grass to maintain a deeper root system, thereby helping the grass to find more water.
