I just don’t need someone telling me what happened to my lawn who doesn’t do anything to take care of his other than mow occasionally . 

You may need to dig that up and go to desert landscaping next spring if your dry winter call pans out.

Next up .. Forest Fires 

ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER POTENTIAL FOR MONDAY...

The combination of gusty northwest winds, full sunshine and
drying conditions on Monday will lead to elevated fire weather
potential across Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
Northwest winds will gust between 25 and 35 mph on Monday, with
lowest relative humidities around 35 percent. Open burning is
strongly discouraged on Monday.

This statement is issued in collaboration with Massachusetts DCR,
Connecticut DEEP Division of Forestry, and the Rhode Island
Department of Environmental Management.

I could care less about the lawn.   Some of my neighbors have sprinkling systems and lawns are green-no local restrictions but mine will be green again by October which is kind of ironic.  Big items to buy over the next 2 months are a leaf blower, lawn mower, snowblower.   I really don’t anything not cordless and recharging.

I’m curious as to why you don’t have an irrigation system.  You have such an amazing lawn typically and I would think that would be worth the peace of mind.

I burned nothing. This is the first time in 30 plus years of lawn care this has happened to any of my lawns. It’s called a severe drought . It’s what happens to well maintained lawns while yards where folks do nothing are infested with crab grass , clover, chickweed , dog doo etc 

man what do your neighbors think they must be aghast. Your going to get voted out of the man lawn club at this rate

Is that problematic?  I honestly don’t know.  

Well it would draw more water from a well providing drinking water I guess? Maybe that’s what he’s worried about. Shouldn’t matter if it’s deep enough.

Sounds like the lawn might be more important than drinking though... can always buy bottled water, ha.

I wouldn't think so. I'm on a well (750 ft deep) and my well actually has a pressure release that the landscaper turned into a little pond that flows into the wetlands near my house, since it essentially lets out water on and off all the time.

Yeah I have a well and a irrigation system. I am right in the middle of that severe drought, but my yard has been doing well. 424be783ed13d83b2c3395211ed23042.jpg

I wonder how often DIT mowed during the drought. For the lawn fanatics I know, the act of mowing is a ritualized thing and a huge part of the appeal of the "lifestyle." Letting your lawn grow a little longer to survive a dry period is going to be very hard for a lawn Nazi to handle.
