How to Care for Lawns During Dry or Drought Seasons


Warren, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/18/2016 -- When temperatures are at an all-time high, and there is little or no rain forecasted, the question of how to care for a lawn may be on the minds of many homeowners. A lawn deprived of moisture and nutrients can sustain damage and most of the time that damage can be reversed; but not always. With some effort and care, a dry brown lawn can turn lush and green when the weather begins to cooperate. Aeration and dethatching, for example, can be very beneficial for a thirsty lawn.

Dethatching will remove leftover clippings from previous lawn mowing and will allow any moisture available to penetrate the ground and thus be absorbed into the roots of the grass. Aeration can be used as a more direct method of supplying moisture to the grass roots. Manual aerating can be tiresome and overloading; using a powered aerator can save time and a backache from occurring. Aeration is the process of removing plugs, or small tubular amounts of soil, from the lawn to provide space for water, nutrients and fertilizer. Directing these essential things can help speed up the process of reviving a drought stricken lawn.

Aeration should be performed when the soil is moist enough to allow tines to penetrate easily, but not when soil is muddy and saturated, and never when the soil is dry and hard. Turf can be prepared for aeration by watering in advance.
