When is the best time to water your lawn. I've been watering my lawn every other evening and hav ent cut it in over 2 weeks and it is still brown?? Some gut told me you get mushrooms in your lawn if you water at night? What could fix my problem to this drought? Should I apply like a Scott's turf builder lawn ferilizer that onlty strengthens the roots or what? I have been cutting my 3" properties which is like all of them at 3 1/2 and they are still brown? Last year we had a week of stright rain and all the lawns came back to be lush green after a hot and dry summer.
