Finally starting to cool off. All week, no higher than the 90s, ground temperatures will start to fall and we should see the warm season grasses come out of their "heat dormancy" Warm season grasses tend to go heat dormant when the ground/root zone temperatures are in the 83-86 degree Fahrenheit range. Mid September, Oct, November are the months to regrow the bare spots and achieve full ground cover before winter. If your turf is looking OK , then 1/2" of water should keep it vibrant, if you need to fill in some areas, adding some compost and closer to 1" of water ( maybe hand watering or hose end sprinkling an area) will be needed to encourage runners...COugar Matt out.
