A healthy, green lawn is definitely a satisfying sight for any outdoor lover at this time of year. The lush appearance and crisp edged cuts are an outward indication that the homeowner cares to present their best to the neighborhood. Every plant on earth needs a certain amount of water to keep it healthy and thriving. Turf grass requires more water than trees, shrubs and other plants because its roots are shallower than larger plants.
Lawns are often misunderstood regarding the amount of water they truly need. Since grass roots remain in the top 6” of soil where evaporation occurs, it is important to provide the proper amounts of water for your soil at the correct times. Many homeowners will water their grass to the point of over-saturation while others will rarely water their grass and rely on rain as the only source of water it gets. During normal seasons, your lawn will usually need about an inch of water on a weekly basis to keep up the fresh green color as well as continuing growing capabilities.
Rainfall is the best source of water for lawns and usually takes place on a regular basis. First, let nature assist in any way it can in your mission but inevitably, a little supplementation will probably be necessary. Keep in mind that a beautiful lawn and water conservation aren’t mutually exclusive. Whether you’re motivated by water restrictions, good stewardship or rising water prices, you can do your part with simple water-conserving choices that make sense for you while at the same time maintaining healthy grass.
