Do you let your lawn got brown in summer?

I just can't afford a high water bill and it just seems like wasting to me. Although I do like to walk barefoot in nice soft green grass.

  • Sorry, but I let it go brown. We have spent the past few summers in a severe drought, so no watering.

  • Ours is a little brown now, we have patches that get brown so we can water if we remember to get up early enough.

  • We don't water our lawn, never have. We water the food garden, but never the lawen. Our lawn is mostly crabgrass & weeds (wild clover, wild strawberries & wild violets) anyway, but we don't care, it's all green, and the weeds are very healthy right now, as they don't need as much water as grass does.

  • Before we moved, we never water anything more than the garden. Now we live on base and try to keep our lawn fertilized and watered.

  • Depends on where you live, if you need to water in the summer. Some places do not even have drip irrigation, as the rainfall is enough to keep the grass green during the warm months. Also, some HOAs include yard maintenance guidelines in their CCand Rs.
