Dead Grass

    Its hot hot hot at the Jersey Shore. We spent days cleaning up the yard after the harsh freezing winter we had. Everything looked great outside for a while anyway. Now it has been so hot my grass is fried brown and dead. My flowers are screaming for some rain, even though I water them, its just hot.

      Ugh.  My least favorite part of summer.  It's frustrating and expensive to water my lawn too - I'd rather spend the money and time elsewhere.

      I'm near Chicago and it's been hot here - but I hear New England has been getting cooked!

    No doubt about it, hot weather is always a trying time for plants.  Grass has a tendency to go dormant during a heat wave, to preserve what little water it has until it gets replenished.

    Have you given the grass a thorough soaking?  Is it still brown?  If so, you probably have a grub or cinch bug infestation.  If the damage is really extensive, you'll have to dig it all up and re-sod or re-seed the whole lawn. sad
