Much of Metro Detroit has been faced with drought this year.  Many residence have seen their lawn scorched by the sun as the green green turns into yellow and brown. The days have been hot, while rain has seldom been seen. Here are some tips to help your lawn survive drought conditions.

  • Raise your mower height by 25% or more. When you let your grass grow taller, it increases the shading of the surface roots and helps retain surface moisture.
  • Minimize lawn traffic, during drought as damage from compaction increases.
  • Do not fertilize your lawn. High fertility before or during a drought can reduce root mass and cause injury to the lawn.
  • Identify the areas of your lawn that require more focused watering. Areas close to buildings and other heat-reflecting areas will be hotter and drier. Areas that are high or clopped will also require more water.
  • Try to water before 9 A.M, early in the morning wind is limited to avoid evaporation. Watering early in the morning will also help your lawn absorb water during the hottest times of the day.
  • Leaving lawn clippings on the lawn, by doing so you will return nutrients and moisture.
