Q.Red Creeping Thyme Dying?

Zone Sacramento | mgchlz added on July 16, 2020 | Answered

I recently planted creeping thyme flats on my front lawn with spacing. Some clumps look brown with crunchy leaves. Are they under-watered? We watered 2 times a day and 20 minutes each. We are located in hot climate, 90-100 degree in summer. Is there any way to revive them? They are still very young.

Likely, they are overwatered. Watering should occur, only, after the soil dries thoroughly down to about 2 inches. Creeping Thyme will be somewhat drought tolerant, so care should be taken not to overwater.

Do you know if the plants will revive at this point if they are overwatered?
