The summer is here and it’s hot! Your lawn may be experiencing what’s called heat stress. Typically when a lawn is suffering from heat stress you will notice brown areas throughout, you can combat this condition by adequate watering. Watering the lawn through the summer season when temps are extreme is one of the most important things you can do for optimum health. One inch of water per week is usually sufficient for most lawn types in Georgia. When conditions may become more extreme, it could potentially cause for you to water even more. The best time to water your lawn is in the mornings between 5-10am when its cool enough for the water to get down to the root system before evaporating. This goes for your beloved trees/shrubs and other plant material as well. We can’t stress enough, water, water, water. Enjoy the summer season.  God Bless You.
