As you might have heard, we have now had our 25th day in a row above 110. Since today is July 25th, that means every day in July has been over 110. With the record-breaking temperatures that we are experiencing it goes without saying that water usage has increased significantly to keep the Bermudagrass from turning brown and dying.
With the unprecedented 25 consecutive days of above 110-degree temperatures, we are doing everything in our power to keep the grass alive. We have heard from a few that we are over watering. Unfortunately, the current weather conditions do not provide a proper growing environment for any plant life whatsoever, especially turfgrass. Without the extra water the grass will wilt and eventually die. This scenario is no different for a person exposed to these extreme conditions with little to no water to drink.
