My lawn is currently struggling in the recent heat wave that has hit the midwest United States. Despite how much I water my lawn resemble more of a desert than a green oasis.
I've asked around and I get conflicting advice. To prevent burning the lawn, some say it best to water in morning while others say in the evening. Some say keep the grass short, others say to let it grow out.
What can I do to prevent my backyard from becoming the first desert in Wisconsin? What is the correct time to water/mow on those really warm days/weeks?
