Your Lawn Needs Water ........ Help!

Updated: Nov 26, 2021

When watering your lawn, you should really strive to water less often, but for longer periods of time. The goal is to drive the grass plants root growth deep into the soil, thereby creating a much healthier and stronger stand of turfgrass.

In most cases, 1" of water each week will suffice, keeping your lawn in good health and able to recover light stress and prolonged durations of heat.

The most common errors we see is either no watering at all or too frequent, light watering. Grass that is maintained in a continuous "wet state" will be plagued by summer patch/fugal related diseases that are difficult to control.
