    9th annual Lawn Thread 2018

    I was just going to ask how long it stays green for---6 months? That is more than I would have thought for Zoysia in a northern state. I could never have that for many reasons, but seems to work for you.

    2.61" past 24 hours or so. Rivers and streams are raging..never seem them so high in my 4 years here. Normally this is a summer trickle

    Welcome to the SVT banana belt...Nice car ride up there..and hike also. I'm sure PF appreciates your lapse rate reports of 5F per 1000ft ..think the base is around 800ft and top around 3900ft. Although I thought it would be a bit lower with more humid air, but I'm no expert.

    Money being no issue, that is the way to go I think. Will look nice under the Oak and you wont have that moonscape/desert look anymore.

    Yep, saw a cocorahs report over 6" past 4-5 days in that area (West Halifax). Think we're in the 3-4" range in valley, will have to check gauge when I get back from Baltimore....trulyhere.

    Hit some low stingers and get that extra roll Drove by Equinox earlier and there are swimming ponds on some fairways.

    2.27" this morning. Some nice TL also. Definitely missed some of the action last night and this morning, so there are probably higher amounts around SVT somewhere.

    Right, I guess I should have added that a brown discolored lawn could also be disease and or grub damage which is less likely to come back than drought dormancy. Grub damage is pretty easy to identify as the lawn will be able to be pulled up off the ground like a piece a sod.

    Yes, the lawn is basically going dormant if it goes all brown. It could probably be totally brown for a month or so and still be fine and come back again with some rain and or irrigation.

    Well, looks 5 days straight of 90F+ here, and think Saturday was 89F, so almost 6 straight, which is pretty impressive.(Im guessing it has happened before, but not sure) I dont have good records in my 4 years here, but we haven't hit 90F that often that I can recall, and the times we do hit 90F its normally like 91/64 type stuff. Only thing its been good for is swimming. Been hitting up local lakes and pools with the kiddos and not used to getting out and not needing a towel or feeling a chill from the normal 81/60F airmass i'm used to while swimming up here. Although Sunday was absurd with the temp/dew combo, even after swimming had to go right to the shade and still couldn't cool off.
