Summer Watering Tips

May 26th, 2010

Summertime is here! Today I will be providing you with some tips to help you efficiently water you turf.

  • Avoid frequent watering: Frequent watering promotes a shallower root system.
  • Water early in the day: Watering earlier in the day allows more water to reach the roots of the grass and reduces the amount of water that is evaporated.
  • Water evenly across your lawn: Watering evenly prevents flooding in some areas and missing other areas.
  • Avoid over watering: You can use a rain gauge to measure the amount of water. Try to get about 1 inch per week.
  • Monitor rainfall: If you know there will be rain later that day, avoid watering.

This easy tips will help you maintain a beautiful lawn. Remember to try your best to conserve water! If you are watering and water is getting on your driveway or street, try to fix this problem because that is just wasted water. We look forward to seeing you out in your yard this summer!
