Time To Start Watering Your Lawn

By Allyn Paul, filed under Lawn Tips.

Hey there lawn care enthusiasts! Hope you are having a productive and green weekend! In fact, I have just returned in from a long day of lawn chores, and, without a doubt, I can tell you that it is time to start thinking about, and actually executing, your lawn watering plan for the season. Yes, I said “lawn watering plan,” and I have a good reason for that: if you don’t plan it, you won’t execute it.

Here are some quick tips for you to include in your lawn watering plan this season:

Water Consistently

First off, you need to give your grass consistent irrigation throughout the week. It’s not a good idea to let the lawn go dry and almost dormant before you give it some water. You almost have to train it to get just the right amount of moisture on a very consistent basis. Consistent watering will make the root system of the lawn grow healthy and deep, and that is what we want.

Water Deeply

Being on a schedule is a good thing, make sure your water your lawn uses your water property so it’s not wasted. When you do irrigate the lawn, make sure you are getting a good 1/2 inch of water down in every space of the turf. If you are unsure how long it takes to get the 1/2 inch of water, buy a rain gauge, and leave it out in several areas while your sprinklers are on.

In most cases, leaving the sprinkler out in a spot for one hour will give you very close to that 1/2 inch we are going for.

The last thing to think about is the time of day you water. I highly recommend mornings prior to 10 AM. If you can do that, water a consistent three times per week, and water deep, you will be all good all summer long. And, your grass will stand up tall and green!
