With the flooding and hurricane season coming up, it’s natural to get worried about things that we have invested so much hard work maintaining, among them is our lawn.  Lawns usually survive under water for up to four days, and if the water is flowing, they might survive for a longer period of time.

What To Do Next

After a flood, it’s recommended to try and fix the lawn as soon as possible. There are times when you have to replace the lawn after a flood. Floodwaters can cause erosion or bring contaminants and chemicals to your soil.  Additionally, if your lawn has more than an inch of mud or silt, you may have to replace it.

The amount of damage that your lawn suffers depends on several factors. Some of them include:

  • Temperature
  • Grass species
  • Water depth
  • Duration of submergence

 

The time limit that grass can survive depends on the area and the type of grass.  It is recommended to fertilize and aerate the lawn as soon as the water recedes.
