Its amazing what a couple of good days of rain will do to a lawn. Even last week this lawn was brown and dead.
It gets full sun all day but its real problem is that in 2014 it was a neglected and abandoned menage of 3 feet deep sand.
The thin crust of soil we put on the top does not stop it heating up below and it soon dries out. But it rained all day last Saturday and half a day this weekend and its back green and growing!
I know other east coast bloggers were suffering from the prolonged hot spell - I hope everyone's lawn is greening up again!
