Lawn Care 101 - Andy Randall

What a summer! Michigan experienced an unusually rain free May – July.  Then we had plentiful rain to maintain our grass and shrubs.  Over the years, we’ve seen a trend for fewer Dunbarton homeowners to use their sprinkler systems to maintain their lawns.  While this may save on the water bill, it can result in some burned-up looking lawns!  At the end of the day, lawn maintenance is a personal choice (there are some restrictions we have in our Covenants, Agreements and Restrictions), but your choice may impact your neighbors and other homeowners.  Should we experience similar weather next year, you may want to consider selective use of your sprinkler system during periods of limited rain.  Your lawn, and neighbors, will thank you!
