Coming To a Lawn Near You: The Worst Months For Your Lawn

July and August are the worst two months of the year for your lawn, because it is exposed to harsh sunlight for longer periods of time during the day. These months are often hot and dry, and may leave your lawn looking less than lush and green from drought.

Much of the grass growing on residential lawns in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is cool-season grass, which does better in cooler climates. But the summer dry periods can result in the grass going dormant, at which point it will turn brown. Unfortunately, these summer months are the same ones most homeowners will want to be outside and enjoying their lawn.

Keeping your lawn lush all summer long

An irrigated lawn is a healthy, green lawn that strikes a jealous envy in the hearts of all of your neighbours. A dormant lawn is brown and dead-looking, but the lawn will be showing signs of fatigue long before it reaches the dormancy stage.

For example, a dry lawn will not “bounce back” after being stepped on, may appear to have a bluish hue and look limp or wilted. Keep in mind that an over-watered lawn can also exhibit similar symptoms, so monitor your lawn irrigation habits very closely.

A smart lawn irrigation system  will prevent premature dormancy from hot and dry weather by watering your lawn based on what it needs – and take into account any recent rainfall so as not to waste water.  A dormant lawn can also be “brought back” to its green state with proper watering. In other words, a smart irrigation lawn system is a smart, eco-friendly timesaver.
