Why is My Lawn Yellow and My Neighbor’s is Green?!


Hey, this is Ted with the Summit and I wanted to talk about a common question that we get and it is, why is this line here? Super green? And the neighbor across the street? Why is that one yellow? And the answer is that it’s a pretty simple one. There are a couple of things that could be happening. The first thing is, is if your lawn is green, or let’s say your lawn is brown and your neighbors are green, your neighbor might have bluegrass, or if they have fescue, like this lawn, this is a modern hybrid of fescue. This lawn was receded a couple of years ago with a modern hybrid of fescue. And so it’s designed to green up really fast in the spring. This one over here, that’s going to be an older style of fescue. And it’s it doesn’t green up as quickly it doesn’t react to cooler weather quite as well. The other thing with this lawn, this lawn right here, this one is on a fertilizer program. So the soil has conditioned the applications that we’ve been doing over the last couple years and especially last fall with our winterize that is what wakes your lawn up here in the spring. And it helps it get green really fast. So the soil on this fescue lawn is conditioned, it’s a modern hybrid. So when we do our, our aeration and overseeding in the fall, that’s why we recommend doing overseas because we can use these modern seed blends to help your lawn react better in following seasons thereafter, and this is a couple of year going, but this lawn is doing awesome here. Whereas the fescue lawn across the street, it just takes longer before it gets green. I hope that helps.
