Don’t Worry, your Lawns will Always look like this In this Heatwave

Living in Colorado we have only a handful of days that climb into the triple digits. Working in Aurora property management for the last ten years we have picked up on trends that happen with reliability each year. Towards the tail end of June leading into the 4th of July holiday, the heat can approach triple digits. It will be one of few days in the year where it does, and we are approaching that currently. Today’s thermometer reads 98 degrees, which, is close enough to the 100 marks to be swelteringly hot. Can anyone really tell the difference in two degrees? So, this lead up is very hot, and there is one thing that may seem like it is a product of this fleeting heatwave. It is large dry yellow spots in your lawn. We have come to find that once the heat rises this quickly that there will inevitably be spots of your yard that will take a beating until the heat starts to balance out. Here is what you should do. First verify your sprinklers are coming on with regularity and that there are no issues. Sometimes a zone needs to be recalibrated, so it can reach those yellow spots. Next, take not of where the sun hits your lawn. There are some parts that will never see shade, and so the 15 minutes of water they get from the sprinklers will dry up instantly. These yellow sections could use a but of hand watering just for maintenance, but don’t worry that something is happening to your yard. Once we get through this hot month, you’ll only have a month or two before the yards go dormant against o it will be short lived. There’s no need to panic in the hot days.

I find that it is best to let the grass go dormat during a heat wave.
