Drought lines are caused when footprints or mower tracks make a long-lasting imprint
in the lawn instead of bouncing right back. The grass blades turn a bluish-green or slate-gray color
and wilt. In the cool evening, the grass recovers until the following day. Sun and heat will
make the lawn darken and wilt again. Areas begin to thin out After a few days, areas begin
to look and feel like straw and that area will die. Water the lawn immediately. If the grass has
turned yellow, the affected areas will recover but it can take several weeks.
