I'm walking down my block this morning and I start singing "One of these lawns is not like the other. One of the lawns just doesn't belong." Can you guess why?
That is what hardly any rain in the last year and over 30 days of 100+ temperatures will do to your burmuda lawn in Oklahoma. Unless you're crazy dedicated to watering like that last fella.
So that green lawn doesn't belong to me, but I'm glad to say that none of the others do, either.
Here's my lawn:
Not a pretty sight at all. I wasn't dedicated to watering early enough. Oh well. I do know that it's not dead. Nothing - and I mean nothing - can kill a burmuda lawn. It's just going into a kind of heat/drought dormancy. It will green up again when it rains or cools down, whichever comes first. Now when either one of those happens...
only God knows.
