Watering Grass Correctly Is Key To A Lush, Green Lawn
It is another hot week. Your lawn will need some help if it is to thrive and look its best. Here are 7 things you need to know about watering our lawn:
Water in the Morning
Early morning watering is the best. It allows your lawn to take up the most water since it will not evaporate in the heat.
Avoid Watering in the Afternoon and Evening
This may seem obvious after the previous point but there is more to it. When watering late in the day the grass may not completely dry before the cooler evening sets in. This is a recipe for fungal growth and that is never a good thing.
Lawns require 1”- 2” of water per week. This can be done in one long watering but it is best to break it up into two or three waterings.
Shallow watering does little or no good for your lawn. Deeper, longer waterings encourage the grass roots to grow longer resulting in a lawn that can better survive in stressful times.
Advice For New Lawns
New lawns, whether seeded or sodded, need to be watered more often until the grass is established.
This sounds like a no-brainer, but it’s worth double checking: Aim your sprinklers to water the lawn — not the sidewalk, driveway, patio or street.
Consider Automatic Sprinklers
Automatic sprinklers make your life easier and water more efficiently. They turn on at the right time, run for the correct amount of time, and turn off when done. Also, in most areas, you will not be charged for sewage which is a huge part of you water bill.
