Tips from Toby – Early Fall Dormancy
The extremely dry October along with the warmer temperatures have left some pretty brown lawns all over town. It's easy to mistake this for heat stress, but our lawns are so dry they are actually going dormant early. Lawns usually don't start going dormant until early December, so letting them go to sleep now means they won't thicken, gain strength and absorb nutrients throughout the Winter leaving sparse and unhealthy lawns next Spring. We need water and Toby tells you what to do and how to get those lawns to wake up and be healthy again.
