Drought conditions across the country impacted many of the lawns this year. There is help. Topdressing organic matter on lawns regularly will help lawns hold existing moisture longer and help the lawn stay green longer. Soils that have a high clay or sand content seem to have the hardest time especially when they lack organic matter and many of them are down around 1%. Lawn care professionals that own a topdresser can help by aerating and topdressing with organic matter. Water is an important resource that we must conserve.
