Will grass lose ground?
by Franke James
Dave Phillips, senior climatologist with Environment Canada, in the Toronto Star June 19/07, said, “The weather is sucking us dry… It’s going to be dry, dry, dry and warm, warm, warm.” The scarcity of rain has prompted water advisories and rationing in some areas of York Region.
What I observe as I walk around Toronto, is lots of grass quickly turning brown. I need to find a drought resistant grass for our front yard. A sign of the times.
