(WICHITA, Kan.) — You wouldn't know we're in the middle of a drought by looking at Ken Tector's lawn.
"It's pretty good for the heat,” Tector said.
He's trying to keep his grass green, considering what happened during last year's dry period.
"This is rebel fescue. We replanted it last fall because everything was dead,” Tector said.
And he doesn't want a repeat. Neither do the countless callers trying to squeeze every last drop of information from Sedgwick County Extension horticulture agent, Rebecca McMahon.
"It's the combination of the heat and the drought. It's kind of a one-two punch for a lot of our plants,” McMahon said.
