Is My Lawn Dead?
Is your grass brown, dry, and just plain ugly? Does your lawn look dead?
Occasionally, you may see brown spots scattered throughout your lawn or your entire lawn may turn a dry, brown color (generally in dryer seasons).
Not to fear: it’s most likely temporary and easily fixed. Your grass is probably not dead; it’s most likely dormant.
What is Dormant Grass?
Grass will hibernate during periods of drought. It turns brown to conserve water but will turn back to its lush, green state once its watered and cared for properly.
How to Fix Your “Dead” Lawn
First, identify if your grass is suffering from any type of fungus. If it is, it may require a professional’s assistance.
If your grass is just dormant (and does not need treated for fungus), irrigation will easily bring your lawn back to life.
When grass is in a dormant state, weeds can easily take over and fight your grass for nutrients and water. By eliminating weeds, you’re giving your lawn a much better opportunity to rise out of its dormant state without competition – which will translate into a gorgeous, lush lawn.
