Lawn Watering

Lawn watering




How often you water your lawn depends on your soil, the season or temperature, humidity and how often you get rainfall

When to water your lawn

Water when the soil starts to get dry, before the grass wilts. When grass wilts the grass blade will roll up to conserve moister. It will also change from bright green to a dull blue green.


Another way to tell your lawn needs water is by walking on your lawn. If your footprint impressions remain for more than a few seconds, the grass doesn't bounce back up, it's time to water.


The type of soil and grass you have affects how much to water. To much water is ideal for disease and weeds.


How much should you water

The soil should be moist 6-8 inches in depth. Wait about twelve hours and stick a screwdriver into the ground. If it goes into the soil easily about 6-8 inches, the lawn is wet enough.


When should you water

Early in the morning is the best time to water. the water can reach the roots with out much evaporation. Watering in the afternoon is when evaporation from the sun and wind are at its maximum. In some areas watering at night can cause lawn disease.


If your lawn is established, water only when it needs it, rather than on a regular schedule. This will save you water and keep you from damaging your lawn. Watering to much can mean more weeds, disease, and more mowing. Water only when needed for a beautiful care free green lawn.
