What should I do if drought conditions occur?
Early drought symptoms include your grass colour changing to a dark silvery tinge, foot prints become clearly visible and the grass does not bounce back when you walk on it. Drought conditions occur when your lawn does not receive the proper amount of water such as when it is hot and sunny for long periods of time without rainfall. If your lawn shows these signs water it immediately and continue to water at regular intervals but don’t over water. If your lawn continues past the early signs and turns a straw colour please don’t panic! When the weather changes and rainfall occurs or cloudy cooler weather arrives your lawn will slowly come back to its natural green colour. Dormancy is a natural defence mechanism.Back
