It has been so hot here in Cheltenham, Pa. What can we do besides watering the grass to keep it from turning green, and when is the best time to water. It has been above 90 degrees for two weeks now and still going.
Thank you for your help.

I think everyone's lawn is suffering from the heat. It's best to water in the very early morning, and to water deeply so the roots are deep and in cooler soil. Deep roots will help keep your lawn greener, even in the heat. The best way to do this is to run your sprinklers for 15 minutes. Turn them off so the water can soak into the soil, then run them for another 15 minutes. Twice a week should do it. I love the warm weather but it sure is hard on plants!
