The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

THE GOOD:

It is raining today! Did you hear me?  I said... IT'S RAINING!!!  I can't even begin to tell you how happy that makes me.  This means no having to water the lawn tonight.

And for those of you who think I am crazy for watering my lawn so much....just take a look at this luscious, green grass.  I'm very proud of how well it has done this year even though we have had such extreme heat with absolutely NO rainfall.




THE BAD:

It doesn't look like the rain is going to stick around....Ughhhh!

THE UGLY:

There are not enough hours in the day to water both the front and back yard, so we put all of our effort into the front of the house since that is the side most people see. 

As you can see in the photo below...our backyard is in desperate need of some aqua!





Does anyone else have a brown and crusty lawn this year?

In summers past, our lawn has looked very similar to your backyard. Thankfully, we've been blessed with extra rain this year thanks to a Tropical Storm that came thru in June. However, if we don't get more rain soon - our yard might turn brown as well. Hope you have a great Friday!

I'm surprised your town doesn't have drought restrictions regarding watering your lawn.

Our lawn isn't looking great this year either, along CT is doing better rain-wise than the Midwest. When I went out to visit Chicago two weekends ago I was shocked at all of the dead grass and plants. It's so sad!
