Adding to Drought Damage
You can conserve moisture by not mowing your lawn during the heat of the day when the freshly cut blades release moisture rapidly and can turn brown. Sharp mower blades create a clean cut that heals quickly vs. the torn grass blades and brown frayed tips that come along with a dull mower blade. You can also conserve moisture by not mowing too short. Closely cut lawns expose the soil to the sun and increase the rate of evaporation causing your lawn to dry out faster.
