WATERING

GENERAL GUIDELINES

Quantity

Lawns should receive approximately 1 - 1 1/2 inches of water per week. Deep watering to a depth of 6 inches is recommended. Waterings that only dampen the grass can harm your lawn.

Best Time

Watering in the early morning is the best. When you water in the middle of the day a lot of water is wasted due to evaporation. Watering in the evening invites fungus into your lawn.

Signs of Lack of Water

The grass turns a silvery blue in areas, and will turn brown if not watered soon. If footprints clearly remain in the lawn, this is another indicator that water is needed.

Other Tips

1. Give special attention to hot spots in your lawn that dry out quickly.
2. Allow the soil to completely dry before watering again. This will help reduce the risk of lawn fungus.
3. Splitting your normal watering duration into two watering cycles one hour apart will reduce water runoff and waste.
