Lawn not looking so hot? It is sometimes a difficult question on whether to try and revive your lawn or just scrap it and start over with new sod. Here are a few guidelines before you rent that rotor tiller and take out some aggression.

Cool season grasses that we have here in northern Colorado will go dormant in hot weather when they are not receiving enough water. If you begin a good water schedule, the lawn will often times snap out of its sleep and wake up to a green lush lawn again. However, If the root dies from a lack of water, it is beyond repair and it is time to re-sod.

How do you know if your grass is dormant or dead? The best way is to water for two weeks. If you see no signs of life at the end of the two weeks, it’s time to break out that rotor tiller, or better yet… Call LawnPro.
