Dry, Hot Conditions Require Special Lawn Care

Even though we received some rain over the weekend, most lawns in the area still look brown and burned. Eugene Matzat from the La Porte County Extension Office explained a few tips for watering lawns and gardens in this weather.

“For watering lawns and gardens, basically the guideline would be to water in the morning so that the air temperature and wind has a chance to dry off the surface. This prevents any potential for any fungal diseases to infest your lawn,” said Matzat.

Matzat said it has been quite an unusual spring, and summer doesn’t arrive yet for a couple of days.
