Here in the CONUS turfgrass transition zone (See my blog post on “Turfgrass Adaptation”.) the conditions are lousy for cool season turf and warm season turf. It gets cold enough in the winter so warm season turfs go dormant. And it gets hot enough in the summer so cool season turfs go dormant. Its really NOT ideal for either type of turfgrass. Living in the north, deep south or out west makes turfgrass cultivation and care a little easier.
This is the time of year when I get a lot of questions about how heat affects our turf.
