KIRKWOOD, MO (KTVI)– The hot dry weather is starting to take a toll on yards and gardens.
What has largely been a wet and temperate summer suddenly went dry a couple weeks ago. And as the moisture has dropped, the temperatures have soared and that’s putting extra stress on our yards and gardens.
This is something we didn’t see or need for much of the summer.
But after several weeks of dry weather topped off by this week’s blistering heat, the grass isn’t looking quite so green on either side of the fence.
And it’s not just the grass that’s feeling the heat. Trees and shrubs are drying out too.
And that’s causing some trees to drop leaves well ahead of the fall season.
