Well its official that Minneapolis/St.Paul metro area has a drought. 2 of my lawns I have not mowed since july 9th. The one that is fertilized seems to be about 90% dead grass. The other one thats never been fertilized is growing slowly but is not dead anywhere. When I started out mowing when I was a teenager,,, I remember the first lawns to burn up when it got dry in July was the ones that were fertilized.
