What has been your experience?
My lawn is 2 acres and I am on a well so obviously irrigation is out of the question and we are in a drought now. I am praying we get some of that tropical storm early next week they are talking about. It is like the Sahara around here.
You might get very liitle from the dew alone but if not watered or kept damp until its established like Pro Street Camero said, those nice new little seedlings will die out.
Yeah I'm hoping for that rain too. Supposed to come on Monday.
