  •  East Coast is definitely different for water (1+ / 0-)

    Even in supposedly rainy Seattle, we have a major dry spell in July and August, so unless you water your lawns, it turns brown.  Not so much back east, where you have regular rain to keep the lawn green and growing.

      Whatever gave you THAT idea? We may live in the "Lake Effect Snow Capital" of the US, but we have had dry spells and brown lawns in the summer as long as I can remember. Even this year, one of the wettest so far in years, I'm sure my lawn will be at least partly brown in another month - it looks so strange to see it all green now!

      And I'll let my lawn go dormant and get stressed from lack of water rather than water it - I can remember several times in the last 10 years when we were on water restrictions and asked NOT to water the lawn, too.

      It happens here, just like everywhere else.

      •  Maybe a different climate? (0+ / 0-)

        I'm remembering the year I lived just outside DC in Maryland.  It seemed like there were near-daily thunderstorms dropping a little rain on the lawn.  I know we never watered the lawn and I also never got a break from mowing.
