I enjoy vegetable and flower gardening, and my husband takes care of the lawn, which I think it is more of a “man thing”, based on my observation of seeing more men working with their lawn, while more women tending to other gardening projects. Don’t you agree?
The above pictures are of our lawn in May (0n the left, as you probably guessed it), and to the right is the current issue with this lawn in August, after being scorched by the hot summer sun.
We are lucky to only have few spots of burnt out grass throughout our lawn, but nonetheless, these need to be restored to its original appearance.
If you are facing the same issue with your lawn, and are looking for ways to remedy it, I found a perfect article on this very subject, which is very interesting and helpful.
“Doing Spot Repair To Drought Damaged Lawn” - by Mike McGroarty, who is a fountain of knowledge on all gardening subjects.
Also, if you are planning to reseed your lawn, or start a new one, check out his article on, “How to Plant Grass Seeds”, where you find many suggestions on the type of grass seeds to use, and the best way to plant grass.
Good Luck with your lawn refurbishing project!
