Late Summer

When lawns turn brown in the summer, they are often just going “dormant,” not dying. The grass just shuts down until better weather arrives in the fall. It’s a great survival skill!

In the summer, subsurface rocks can often act like a brick oven, literally cooking the grass from underneath. If you have brown patches in the lawn, check for rocks right below the surface by poking a screwdriver into the ground.
