OMAHA (KPTM) – In less than a week grass across the city has turned from green to slightly yellow. Lawn care experts said, Monday, the heat and less rain have had an affect on causing grass to die. Unfortunately, this means people will have to use their own water to prevent their grass from disappearing.
"No one has any money. People are cutting back everywhere," said owner of Kozy Lawn Care, Joe Kozol.
Kozol said being proactive is the only way people and businesses can keep the state of grass in good shape.
"They should be watering at least three times a week," he explained. "Deep watering where you're watering more often at one time. That's the best way to do it."
To avoid too high of a water bill, Kozol said to monitor your water usage and water your lawn in the morning before 10 o'clock.
Fred Kudym, who was watering his newly planted plants near Center Street and Saddle Creek Road, said though he doesn't want his plants to dry out, he doesn't want them to be over watered either.
"I'll probably start backing off here, you know, pretty quick. I probably got about oh 50 to 60 hours watering these in the last month."
