From Too Wet to Too Dry- Too Fast : Don’t let this happen to you.

When the warm weather arrives, following this wet spring, often our first reaction is to assume there is enough water present in the soil to sustain the turf for a few days. Unfortunately this spring many sites have been very wet – consequently the grass plants have literally been growing in water. As a result the root systems have not developed to the normal depth that is expected at this time of year. The warm temperatures will place the grass plant under a great deal of stress. Being aware of the plants fragile root system will give you an edge in keeping it healthy.
