"I don't know about you but I don't remember a drought like this," said Mike Johnson, owner of Johnson Lawn & Landscape.
This statement by Johnson explains why lawn care companies are drying up with the grass this summer.
"In our tree farm alone, we haven't irrigated that for almost five years, and this year we've seen them really struggle," said Johnson.
But, the drought conditions can oddly enough work in their favor.
"We do lawn maintenance...but if that slows up, it just picks up on the other side of things...such as sprinkler maintenance," said Johnson.
Even though there are divisions of landscaping that suffers during the summer such as mowing or watering, hope is still in the air.
"September 1st is that magic date when the fall planning season kicks off again. For the things we haven't been doing in June, July, August...that's when a lot of that will kick off again [in September]," said Johnson.
Now, whether you live on 2nd Avenue and E 5th street, or just right up the block on 3rd Ave, or anywhere for that matter, your front lawn could probably use some maintenance.
Experts urge you to follow tips to help revive the struggling grass.
"Run your irrigation system, cut back on the mowing, always mulch around the basis of the trees, and...pray for rain," said Johnson.
And after all is said and done, we may be able to move forward.
"We can survive this summer, but we wouldn't do this a couple of years in a row," said Johnson.
