Stateline in Need for Rain to Combat Drought Effects
Stateline in Need for Rain to Combat Drought Effects.
A lot what used to be green land, now looks a little less bright.
Owner at Lawn Care by Walter, Mark Walter reflects on the lack of rain in the area.
"We really do need it," said Walter.
"We’ve only had six-tenths of an inch of rain since the first of August," said Bueth.
"Ordinarily, we’d like to get an inch of rain a week for our crops."
Bueth says the dry weather has done a number on the crops and even more so, on the price at which they’re sold.
He says there have been high dew points and humidity.
"Different diseases within the turf grasses and again, some of the trees and shrubs too."
"Put your lawn to bed going into winter as healthy as we can," said Walter.
