And continue to mulch and fertilize everything that you're putting in the ground right now.
“We can't really project how much more rain we'll get, but you need to mulch really well in case it's a normal June,” he said. “We just can't say what the weather's going to do, so we'll just prepare like it will be an average June.”
Fertilizing a lawn that's had this much rain is also going to help in the long run.
“Rain takes the nutrients out of the soil. When you mow, you'll see those yellow patches,” Bremer said. “If you use a summer fertilizer, the lawn will stand the dry summer weather better. The lawn may grow fast now, but the fertilizer will make it grow thicker and greener. You'll have to mow them both just as much, but you'll see how much healthier the fertilized grass is.”
No plants can take being in saturated soil for a long period of time, but Bremer says a few days of wind and sunshine after these wet, cool days will bring everything around.
“We're definitely not in panic mode yet,” he said.
