Can Brown Grass Turn Green Again

Greensward browning can be the result of many things: drought, improper watering, pet urine, and even disease. Yet it isn’t necessarily irreversible.

 There are steps to take to bring life back to dry stalks. First, assess the cause. If disease or pet urine is found, begin treatment and prevention plans right away.

 If simply inadequate water is suspect, start with hydration as a primary remedy. Deeply soak your lawn every several days when weather permits until grass starts growing again greenly.

 Then switch to a routine schedule – once weekly in Spring and Fall; twice during summer months -though make sure you don’t overwater or drown your turf in soggy soil.

 Appropriate fertilizer is also key for restoration. Feed the roots, not just the blades, by selecting the correct product and following directions accurately, as too much fertilizer can scorch delicate grasses.

 Aerating turf breaks up soil’s compaction, resuscitates existing vegetation, and ensures healthy growth for new seedlings should some repairs be necessary for areas less resilient than others, signified by lack of greenery that continues over time. 

 Healthy practices will help any lawn recover after browning due to injury, inappropriate attention, or straight-up neglect, so all hope isn’t lost in reviving those recently rusty panicles into their more customary verdant flavors. Green grass anew may soon thrive on what was previously thought dead and done!
