Best Practices for Lawn Care: Summer Watering Guide
• One inch, one week: Your lawn requires an inch of water each and every week. If the heat is extreme, more water should be provided to compensate for the loss of moisture. A rain gauge can give you an accurate and easy measurement to help you take into account rainy days.
• Deep and infrequent: It may not be the most obvious care tip, but a deep and infrequent watering schedule is more beneficial for your lawn than shallow, daily watering. The roots of your grass will become more tolerant to droughts with this approach.
• Morning watering: Water your lawn in the morning. The earlier the better, as your lawn will get the benefits of the water before it evaporates at mid-day. A morning watering pattern also limits fungal growth.
• Let it be: If a bit of negligence has left your lawn turning dry and brown, it has gone dormant. Do not try to save it with an abundance of water. Let it be until the cooler fall weather arrives, when the temperature change should help bring it back to life.
