Do you need to reseed to save your drought-damaged lawn... or is fertilizer enough... Purdue turf grass extension specialist and assistant professor of agronomy Aaron Patton says most grass species in Indiana are "cool-season grasses” that like adequate water, but this summer many were damaged or died from extreme heat and dry conditions. Patton advises if an area between clumps of surviving grass is larger than your hand print, then it probably needs to be reseeded... while smaller areas could be treated with fertilizer with a high percentage of nitrogen content to encourage growth and recovery. Patton also says be careful to buy the right turf species if you are buying new grass seed.
