Summer drought is a constant challenge in Texas, putting significant stress on turf, causing it to wilt, discolor, or even go dormant. While your grass can survive without water for a short period, this varies based on factors like grass type and soil conditions. Drought stress can result in several problems, including:

  • Slow growth
  • Poor overall health
  • Increased vulnerability to diseases, pests, and weeds
  • Reduced water retention
