Summer Lawns Need Water to Stay Green
It's heating up and our cool-season grasses are suffering. You can let your lawn go dormant (brown), but it will still need water to keep the plant crowns alive. (One inch every 2 - 3 weeks. Note: Your lawn may survive but not fully recover in the fall.)
The best way to water your Johnson County lawn is using a technique called Soak and Cycle. Our soils can typically absorb only two-tenths (.2) of an inch of water in one hour -- the rest runs off; there goes your hard-earned dollars down the stormdrain. We tell you how you can maximize your watering resources below.
Summer heat and humidity often drive us indoors. Are your kids in the basement playing video games? They may be exposed to radon gas which can cause lung cancer. Summer is a good time to check your home's radon levels. We list below why we encourage Johnson County residents to test their homes.
