    In the past month one of my best lawns has turned into a cesspool of problems. All spring I bugged the homeowner to get his sprinker system turned on. Come July he finallly gets around doing it. It takes a week of 90 degree weather get homeower to call. Another week for the sprinkler company to service the unit. The next week of 90 degree weather we realize the sprinklers still arent working. Three weeks of 90 degree heat and no water, and one of plushest lawns we service totally flipped it 180 and burnt it out everywhere. Want I want to know if it's possible that the servere stress could cause disease or insect infestation in the matter of a couple weeks? I did see some webs. I just couldnt believe how quickly the lawn fell apart. These photos arent the best, but let me know if you can see anything prevelant.
