Mother Nature seems to like making us wait for some heat until September. After unseasonably cool weather at the start of the season, she’s certainly turning up the dial. While high temps are awesome for last-minute beach days, they aren’t so good for your grass.

Most lawns in Southern New England are “cool season” grasses. That means they do best when it’s below 85 degrees during the day and even cooler at night. SeaScape techs have seen many lawns in a bit of heat stress. You may notice some browning on your lawn. Once the temperatures cool down and we get more significant rain your lawn will bounce back. In the meantime, you should be watering, if local rules allow. Your lawn needs about 1.5 inches of water per week. The rain we have had lately hasn’t provided that. Please water your lawn if you are able.

In good news, crabgrass is starting to die off on its own. Nutsedge is also fading. Your lawn may be weedy, but we will treat that at the time of your regular application. As always, if you see something that just doesn’t look right on your lawn, please give us a call at 1-800-294-5296 or email us at We’ll come take a look!
