Managing lawns in drought conditions: Summer can have hot dry periods with weeks without any rain. Turf will turn brown and lack springiness when you walk on it. First do not give up on fertilizing during low water conditions. Fertilizing is beneficial when using a slow release fertilizer. This reduces burn potential and then when it does rain, the fertilizer is there when you need it for the lawn to recover. In fact, you need about 1 inch of water within 2 weeks to keep crown alive and hydrated. Grass will then green up once rain begins.
