During hot weather a few things to remember about your lawn:

  • Do not fertilize.  It will stress the lawn and it may burn.
  • Avoid herbicides (weed killers).
  • Maintain a height of 3 inches or more.  This will keep your grass roots cooler and prevent less stress.
  • Grubs attack grass roots.  They are white, C shaped with dark brown heads.  If your lawn is yellowing, wilting or thinning you may have grubs feeding underneath.  You can cut a one foot square and roll back.  If you detect more than eight grubs you should consider a control measure.
