Our Weekly Watering Recommendations
Homeowners in Texas, throughout College Station, Bryan, and NW Houston, are finally celebrating this week! Rain has officially returned to the Texas forecast and the daily highs are showing some relief for heat-stressed lawns. We’ve had scattered showers throughout our areas with forecasts suggesting 1” to 2” of widespread rain possible through Saturday. We are happy to say that our recommendation this week is to leave irrigation systems off and let Mother Nature handle the watering chore this weekend! As always, monitor the local weather in your area in case supplemental watering is needed.
Brown Patches in Your Lawn?
Keep an eye out for any areas of discoloration that may appear on your lawn. With the return of rain, comes the return of possible fungus development, such as brown patch fungus. Lawn diseases and heat/drought stress can often be confused so it shouldn’t be overlooked. Heat and drought stress commonly affect the lawn evenly or in areas where irrigation systems can’t reach. Lawn diseases like brown patch will appear in irregular patches of brown-yellow turf. It’s best to address a lawn fungus as soon as possible to stop the disease in its tracks.
