You’re not the only one who’s wondering why your lawn keeps on dying. This is a common problem among homeowners everywhere. When those brown circular patches on the grass or mushrooms in areas around the lawn begin to show up, people panic. Those who enlist the help of an experienced lawn care specialist get these issues fixed in a snap. However, most of those who choose to go the DIY route doesn’t usually get their desired results.
It’s only natural for most turf grasses to become dormant during extended periods of high heat and low supply of water. If you see this happening to your grass during the summer, don’t worry. When the temperature begins to drop and rain resumes, your grass will recover and return to their normal condition. However, to make sure that drought is the reason why your grass is brown, keep an eye out for tree leaves that drop prematurely. Check if they’re folded up as if they’re praying for rain to come.
Your sprinklers need to reach all areas of your lawn especially during heat waves when brown patches tend to appear. Keep in mind that you can easily adjust your sprinkler heads with the use of a small screwdriver. Also, oscillating sprinklers are more challenging to fine-tune than low-to-the-ground pulsating sprinklers.
