Watering the Right Way

Good watering practices can make a big difference in the looks and health of your lawn. Plus, by encouraging healthier growth, you’ll be improving your turf’s ability to stand up to insects, disease, and stressful summer weather. Even though we are heading into fall and then winter, your lawn still needs plenty of water. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

Watering

• Your lawn needs from 1" to 1-1/2" of water per week from rainfall or sprinkling.*

• It’s better to water less often and deeply than to provide regular, shallow sprinklings. The soil should be soaked to a depth of 6" each time.

• Early-morning watering is best since less moisture will be lost to evaporation from the sun’s heat.

• Remember that your trees and shrubs also need water. They’ll benefit from a long, deep soaking once per week in hot, dry weather.

*If watering restrictions are in place, we encourage you to follow your city/county guidelines for water conservation, watering your lawn, trees and shrubs whenever allowed.
