Just thought that this might seem unusual, so I thought I'd post it.

Usually by sometime in the summer, some people's lawns start to crisp up, but this year no one's has.

I wouldn't call it "lush" looking everywhere, but we've had at least enough to keep things from dying back since Spring.

With all the rain we got in June, no need to water lawns here.

It's the same way here. We've gotten a lot of rain and everything is so lush and green. The flowers, trees, and lawns are thick and gorgeous! We just got a bit over 3 inches of rain last weekend and there are thunderstorms forecast for tonight. It's been like that all spring/early summer.

Well mine looks like the dog days of August, not enough rain and I don't water. Usually in June in our area lawns would be really green but not this year.

Now from Sheboygan down to Milwaukee then west to the river, its all green because the bottom half of Wisconsin has had enough rain.

Lawns are still green here also in central Minnesota although we haven't had a lot of rain.

Timely rains are what is keeping us green.

In our area,soil type plays a big part in whether your non-watered lawn remains green.

Heading west of St Cloud on I-94 you have heavier soils thus many towns ( Albany and Freeport) will have nice,green,lawns w/o watering while heading north of St Cloud on Hwy 10 will have brown lawns w/o watering even with the same amount of rainfall.

(A lot of "blow sand" all the way from St Cloud to Brainerd )

I won't have to water until December as it's uniformly cold and wet until then.
