Dormant Grass or Dead Grass?

Most types of grass can survive extended periods of drought, and although they may look dead, they're often only dormant.

To determine if a lawn is dormant or dead, inspect it down at the soil level. Lawns that have gone dormant will have brown leaves, but the crown at the base of the leaves will still be green, and the roots will have a healthy off-white color. If is lawn is completely dead, the entire plant will be brown and brittle.
