How about this. Tell us what to plant instead of grass. It's obvious the local climate has become drier. Why try to grow grass? Everything grows better., What can I plant to "dryscape" my property???

"If we haven't had rain for a week or so, you should water the lawn..." Then why do property owners constantly run their sprinkler systems every night? Such a waste!

We gave up. The moles won. It's just not worth the fight or expense anymore.

This seems like boilerplate fall lawn care advice, with little regard to our experience this year. I doubt many people's turf grasses "are growing so actively now". The lawns I see are brown and dry. "Though we often receive plenty of rainfall in autumn, it's not unusual to run into a dry spell." You mean like we've experienced all summer? Tell us how to RESTORE our lawns or, as davewtc suggested, what to do instead.

"Tell us what to plant instead of grass" Clover. Happy? It's green all summer long and the flowers are pretty. Your lawn obsessed neighbors might not be happy with you, though.

What a waste of time and money. I'll spend quality time with my family rather than obsess about my lawn.

Agree with the previous posters, was this just copied and pasted from previous years? Nothing in here is relevant to the year we've had this year.
