In the Northern Hemisphere, July is often the month of heatwaves and drought … and it’s the lawn that seems to suffer the most.
You can, of course, water abundantly and deeply to keep your lawn green, but the environmental cost is huge. Imagine, all that water carefully purified and processed for human consumption disappearing into a green space!
So why not be more eco-friendly? When heat and drought hit, let nature take its course. True enough, your lawn may turn yellow and crunchy, but that’s because it’s in summer dormancy, a natural state for temperate-climate lawn grasses. When rain and cooler temperatures return, it will green up once again.
In gardening, patience truly can be a virtue!
