“My lawn is dying!” is something we often hear from our clients here in Murfreesboro and middle Tennessee who have Tall Fescue or Bluegrass lawns after a serious dip in local temps. Be comforted, your lawn isn’t dying, but it has suffered damage due to the cold snap. This frost damage is called “tip bleaching”, you will see “banding” and the grass will look like it’s dying. How cold does it have to get in order to cause damage? Sustained, below freezing temps are especially dangerous to Fescue and Bluegrass, but there is hope. If this has happened to your middle Tennessee lawn we recommend continuing normal, healthy lawn maintenance such as feeding the grass and doing regular mowings. After a few Spring mowings your grass should completely recover.
