What we’re noticing:
  • We got A LOT of rain over the weekend! The forecasts for a wet end of August were correct

  • We’re in a cooler and wetter weather pattern now (as we expect in the late summer) so we’ll finally get the chance to start to see what grass will be coming back and what grass is gone for good to this “roughest summer in ProLawns existence” – since 1980

      • Yellowish grass that is still standing upright should start coming back to life from dormancy

      • Brownish grass that is laying down is likely dead

What we’re doing:
  1. Cleaning up the broadleaf weeds that take thrive in hot dry conditions and take advantage of heat stressed turf areas

  2. Cleaning up crabgrass that’s broken though our preventer due to the heat we’ve had this summer

  3. We’re out aerating and overseeding every day helping repair lawns effected by this summers heat and drought

What you can be doing:
  1. Prepare your mower and leaf cleanup equipment for an early leaf drop – trees are just as stressed as grass and will be dropping their leaves early this year.

  2. Water appropriately (amount and timing are both important!) – keep watering if we don’t get rain. Water up until frost in the fall
