Summer drought in Texas poses significant challenges for turf, often resulting in various forms of stress such as wilting, discoloration, and potentially dormancy. While some turf can survive a few weeks without water, several factors influence their resilience, including grass type and soil conditions. Drought stress can manifest in several ways, including:

  • Slow Growth: Turf under drought stress often slows down its growth rate as a survival mechanism, redirecting resources to maintain essential functions.
  • Poor Health: Extended periods without sufficient water can weaken turf health, making it more susceptible to other environmental stresses and diseases.
  • Susceptibility to Diseases, Pests, & Weeds: Stressed turf becomes more vulnerable to diseases such as fungal infections, pests like insects, and opportunistic weed growth.
  • Reduced Water Retention: Drought-stressed turf tends to have a reduced ability to retain water, exacerbating the effects of limited rainfall or irrigation.
