Curb Appeal & Drought

Please remember that even during drought, you can water responsibly and still maintain a neat, well-kept yard.  It may take a little more effort than in years past, but maintaining our property values is worth it.  St. Augustine grass doesn’t go dormant – it dies.  If you’ve lost your yard to the summer heat and lack of water, you may want to consider overseeding with Rye grass for the winter.  This will help keep your soil intact and hopefully, ward off the mud pits when the rains (hopefully) come this winter.  You might also consider seeding with a drought tolerant Bermuda in the spring, once again for soil retention, and to cut down on weeds.  For more info on drought proof landscapes and grasses that can survive our summers,  see “Community” => “Gardening in Wells Branch”
