    yep, most of mine are....even the ones that have irrigation. My lawn looks great yet but I water the bejesus out of it.

    The lawns turn quick after the 100 degree weather but relief is here, they will recoup.

    Hey Tony,

    Yup, lawns are slowing a lot... fortunately, we're still mowing >90%... we go unless they call to request a "skip". WE;re getting caught up on pruning, signed some mid summer mulch, finished grub pre-emergents, still applying fungicides & scheduling a lot of landscaping for the fall. Hopefully the forecasters are right for once & it won't hit 90 for the next 9-10 days or so. P.S. got a great deal on a '05 isuzu w/ 12'dump stake leftover (brand new... couldn't pass it up!)

    mine doesn't seem to grow anymore, i dont' like wasting city water on my lawn, and with the heat, the amount of times i would have had to water it would have been rediculous, so, i let it go, itll come back, maybe not completely this year though...a good bit of my clients lawns have fried too
