It may seem like summer is over. The kids are back in school and it is almost Labor Day weekend. The truth is summer isn’t officially over until September 23rd and for us in North Texas summer like temperatures can last well into October!
That is why I wanted to send out today’s quick tip on drought stress, because we’re seeing a lot of yards effected by it.
Drought stress is almost always caused by under watering. In our experience the two likely culprits are not watering long enough and/or unknown sprinkler system issue that cause under watering.
