Tips on Watering Your Lawn

DO. . .

•  Water in dry weather.

•  Water early in the morning.

•  Water every 5-6 days in hot weather.

•  Use sprinklers that are close to the ground rather than high in the air, because larger drops are better than fine mist.

DON'T. . .

•  Water from mid-morning to late afternoon. You will Lose 1/3 of your water to evaporation. Try watering before 10AM.

•  Over water because it causes valuable nutrients to wash away.

•  Water too frequently because it causes shallow root system to develop.

•  Water at night because the grass stays wet and encourages the development of disease.

THE TEST:

HOW LONG TO WATER

--Let sprinkler soak an area for about 30 minutes. Dig a spade into the ground and see for yourself whether the water is getting down deep enough; if not water for another 30 minutes.

IF YOU WATERED ENOUGH

--Step on a patch of grass. If the blades spring up, then no watering is necessary. If they don't, then you need to water.
