Ive got two properties that are adjacent to each other that have about 75% of the grass turned yellow and dry like straw. I believe the grass has gone into drought dormancy because of lack of water and intense sun/ heat. I did notice that the areas near the homes (3-4) away from the houses are still green where the home shades the grass a bit but the rest of the yard has no shade. The home owner wants some fert put down but I dont want the condition of the grass now blamed on me. Would watering the lawn well bring the grass back very soon or is it lost for the year? What would you guys do with the limited info provided? I believe the grass is a Kentucky blue/ Rye mixture and the yard is max one year old.
