Best Watering Practices for Your Lawn

Proper Lawn WateringWater is expensive especially in today’s tough economy, but proper watering practices are vital to a lawns overall health and critical to its success throughout the hot and dry summer. Properly following the 6 horticultural practices will produce the best results from our products while minimizing water consumption.

Watering in the early morning is recommended year round, especially in the summer. In the spring and fall early morning (7-8 am) watering reduces the chance of excess moisture which can lead to turf diseases. In the summer early morning (5-6am) watering reduces the amount of water lost to evaporation allowing grass to absorb the water before the heat does which is the best way to prepare the lawn for that 30+ degree weather.

Water should be applied at a rate of 1.5” to all area of the lawns. To test how much water this is at home, place a cup or tin can on your lawn and time how long it takes to fill up with an inch and half of water. This is the amount of time you need to water each area of your lawn for.

Having an underground irrigation system installed on your property is an easy way to take the work out of watering your lawn. Easy, efficient water usage, and extremely convenient, call us for a free estimate today!
