Brown lawns are cool

South East Water is supporting the message from turf experts that homeowners need not worry about a brown lawn during the summer.

Tim Mudge, Chief Executive of the Turf Growers Association, said: “Going brown is the natural survival mechanism of grass. When water is in short supply grass responds by shutting down. The brown colour shows that it has stopped growing until more favourable conditions return. Grass is remarkably resilient, and as long as you follow a few basic rules, most lawns will recover completely when the rain finally arrives.”

Paul Seeley, Operations Director at South East Water, said: “We are pleased to say our water resources are in a good position this summer. We have, unsurprisingly, seen water use increase in the hot weather, but our teams are working hard to make sure we keep up with demand. “The important thing during this hot weather is to keep yourself and those plants that really need the water hydrated – but leave your lawn to look after itself, nature is a wonderful thing and it will bounce back when the rain inevitably returns.”
